The Hooting Owl Distillery is an artisan distiller of craft Gin based in the historic Barmby Moor House on the main A1079 Trunk Road to Hull at Barmby Moor. The House has a long history from being a coaching inn, a public house, a country hotel to now being a family home and home to The Hooting Owl Distillery.
The client wanted a logo with a traditional look, and a tie to the heritage of the Barmby Moor House. After exploring various options, we created a coat of arms that combines the acronym HOD with the road number next to the distillery, 1079, in roman numerals. This gives a subtle nod to the house whilst giving the logo a mysterious charm. The wings link to the Hooting Owl concept, itself based on the owl found at the entrance of the Barmby Moor House.
The website complements this vintage look with earthy colours, wooden textures and a classic serif font.
