The Challenge

The Kirkhouse Bar & Kitchen in conjunction with Start Pubs & Bars implemented a plan for a full refurbishment of the premises to rejuvenate the ageing establishment.

Argued to be one of (if not) the oldest pub in Glasgow the challenge was to bring a new updated brand throughout, modernising the business while retaining it’s historic roots. FIRE5 digital worked closely with Rough Design from Edinburgh, an interior design agency, to help deliver a consistent design message; not just across the premises but the entire brand identity via the various customer touch points in the business.

The Process

We explored new identity options with various colour palettes and applications all the while taking into consideration the new decor soon to be rolled out.

Workshops with the key stake holders and Rough design ensured we kept both the branding consistent across the interior fit out and various print collateral.

The Solution

A new brand identity was simply the beginning of the process; Working with the Leasee we explored various new print collateral including menus and supplementary promotional material.

Liaising with our print partner we then produced quality printed material to help promote the relaunch. We developed a social media strategy and provided training to key staff to help them deliver consistent promotional content posts.
