Junior Hatter wanted to take their original brand and bring it into the modern age while still maintaining a classic look. We wanted to make sure their website, email campaigns, and social media platforms were consistent with the new brand identity and new brand voice. The focus was on family togetherness and positioning the product as an heirloom. These are examples of our process and the final product.
Back to the future
What we did was make a new version of our original logo and gave it a modern spin to it. We cleaned the lines and updated the color palette all in an effort to make the name easier to read.
A lot of research was done to make sure these colors and designs worked with the brand voice as well as their customers. We also created variations that allowed for many different uses.

With the photos, we wanted to explore a few themes. First we wanted to explore the idea of the bond between the father and the son. Secondly, we wanted to make the photos feel like they could come from old-timey London. These are some experiments we did to try and achieve that look.
Websites & Social Media
Developing systems and templates
After finalizing the brand identity for Junior Baby Hatter, we had to develop templates and systems for both the website pages and social media. It took about 2 months to perfect the look of everything. We broke it down into only a few questions. What will the site pages feel like? What will the social posts convey? How are they tied together?
Working with the owner, we crafted a simple but elegant site that felt clean and modern but had a little bit of an old-timey flair to it.
Later, we styled the rest of the pages, of which there were many. Each main page had to be built and designed as well as a template page for every product. We worked closely with the owner to get the feel just right.
They used these photos for their social media as well as their website. Later they asked us to help develop designs that would be used to emphasize the child-like aspect of the company.
A character was designed and a story to go with it. We also helped with their social media posts and email blasts.

The proof is in the pudding as they say and you can see it dripping all over Junior Baby Hatter’s Instagram feed.
First we started with a strategy, then we made a mix of photos and designs based on the brand identity.
