We like wine. Whether shared with friends or paired with a meal, it helps shape an experience that’s alive, imperfect, and fun. So when local powerhouse Sheila Mulvihill came to us needing a brand for her subscription-based wine club and shop, we were very excited.

The resulting name and identity embodies our favorite things about wine through a juicy visual identity and low-key digital experience that subvert the tropes of a traditional wine shop.

In-house photography and a confetti-esque brand palette capture the mood of a spontaneous late-night wine tasting party, or feels a bit like a mess. Either work for the brand.

Set out on Seattle's Ballard Ave., Grape Juice's bright white sidewalk signs and exterior signage demand your attention.
But in an art gallery kind of way. Not a "look at meeeeeeeeeee" kind of way.

We designed and developed Grape Juice's e-commerce website as well as a series of social templates to be used for communication, announcements, and events.
