Harvey's Brewery

Historical product, contemporary brand


A Case Study

THE BRIEF

Design and develop an innovative and contemporary e-commerce site for Sussex based brand, Harvey’s Brewery.

Background

After successfully winning a pitch and securing the project, Harvey’s Brewery tasked O&G with creating an exciting e-commerce website that reflected the refreshed and modernised branding that Harvey’s had introduced the previous year.

Considerations

It was important that the new website design and functionality was not only updated and clean, but also still true to the history and heritage of the Harvey’s brand. Established over 225 years ago, Harvey’s Brewery are a Sussex institution and it was important that this was evident throughout the new site. Harvey’s also wanted to ensure that the website was informative and educational with regards to their carefully crafted brewing process and the variety of products that are available.

Mobile compatible

In order to ensure that the new bespoke site offered a much more user-friendly experience for visitors, it was essential that both the design and development elements of the project were entirely compatible with mobile. Whilst the site needed to look appealing from a visual perspective, the overall functionality and useability of the e-commerce site was equally as important.

Visually appealing

Using Harvey’s recently refreshed colour palette of teal and copper along with their new brand guidelines, we designed a visually stunning website with an overall contemporary aesthetic. Using swift animation, engaging photography and developing a suite of updated iconography, the final result from a visual perspective is something very unique and special to Harvey’s.
