Harrington Brassworks – Designer, manufacturer and distributor of high-end kitchen and bath fixtures
Contracted to resurrect HBWs once strong brand and industry presence. My work started by refining the logo and all corporate identity pieces. I redesigned and produced a new 300 page binder which involved new photography of 100s of fixtures as well as the print and production of the binder. Working with the VP of sales I researched the trade journals, targeted the market, created compelling ads and purchased the media spots. HBWs outdated trade show booth was given a bold and sophisticated look that represented the new brand image. Due to my effort and vision the brand is now once again highly respected in the industry.
