Rainier was enjoying a long run of go-to beer status in the northwest but the brand itself was kind of stuck on autopilot. As the company evolved, they needed some help getting to the root of what Rainier beer is all about, and then sharing it with the world.
Rainier has undeniably great classic looks. We took their identity and gave it a little modern love which, we then carried through to a complete packaging system.
Rainier has always been associated with low-key fun in the great outdoors. We understand that vibe completely and we're uniquely qualified to bring it to life throughout every touchpoint. Campfires and cannonballs anyone?
Packaging, stickers, billboards, new products, coasters, special promotions, posters, even the pull tabs on the beer cans – we had our hands in everything, keeping it all consistent and on-brand.
We have collaborated with Rainier for many years and many changes of the guard. Through it all, we've always remained their number one brand partner and the people they call at 10 p.m. on a Tuesday night when they have a wild new idea to kick around.
The Parliament team is smart, fun, great communicators, have particularly strong creative talent and brand building abilities. I recommend them highly.Mike Scott Brand Manager Rainier Beer
We didn't see Rainier Gin coming, but we're sure glad it did.
That's a lot of good people digging the brand and digging the lifestyle.
The launch party for the new brand at our studio left us with a very full recycling bin.
