Business Need

Packaging and design is really important given the business is competing against some of the biggest brands in the world, so there was a strong need to do something that really made the product stand out


Working with Wonder Stuff Studio a strong brand identity was developed as well as associated labelling for the product. The development work was funded by NBSL's North East Business Support Fund


The product has had a really strong launch and are now being sold in Fenwick and Majestic, as well as some of the best bars and restaurants in the North East. John Chadwick had this to say about their provider - 

"Wonder Stuff Studio developed the brand identity for Durham Gin. They took us through the whole process, from first concepts, brand identity, website design, into bottle label and packaging. We’ve had a fantastic response to our brand, particularly the label design and the overall brand look, and after only a few months of trading we are already in Fenwick and Majestic Wines. Wonder Stuff Studio did a fantastic job for us, and we would definitely recommend them. A great team."
