History


History

SINCE 1878

That is the year our story begins. The Genesee Brewing Company was founded in Rochester, New York, by Mathius Kondolf. To this day, it is one of the oldest and largest continually operating breweries in the United States. The brewery survived Prohibition, the Great Depression, a number of wars, and plenty of stock market turbulence and is still alive and kicking. In 1878, Genesee only served the state of New York. Today, in 2018, it serves all 50 states with as much pride and purpose as it has done for the past 140 years.

An older advertisement featuring Jenny, the Genesee girl, is shown to the right.

A NOD TO THE PAST

The history of Genesee is 140 years long, and much of the United States has evolved greatly between 1878 and today. Modern developments have enhanced the way that beer is brewed, but Genesee has always been able to maintain the same refreshing taste throughout its history. With such a rich timeline of events, it is inevitable for the visual identity to grow and change over time, much like modern society. Genesee needed to be reborn into the 21st century with style, grace, and an elegant reminder of its past.

To the right, a collection of old Genesee emblems and logos displays the rich heritage of the brand. The large oval in the center is Genesee's most recent logo.

LOGO DEVELOPMENT

The new Genesee logo was developed with the logos of the past in mind. Ultimately, the goal was to pay homage to the company's long-standing tradition of brewing. Because the company has existed in three different centuries, the vernacular style became a heavy influence during the initial logo sketches and conceptualization. Vernacular style had to be considered, but it was also important to bring a modern aesthetic to the brand as well. Blending the two styles was critical to the development of the final logo.

The development process took multiple sheets of tracing paper and a few different markers. Over 50 different logo sketches were created; a few are shown to the right.

WREATH SEAL

The wreath seal is designated for use as a stamp on materials where the primary logo would not be appropriate in either the context of the application or in the space available for logo placement. Examples of this include, but are not limited to, bottle cap embellishments and logo placement on smaller digital advertisements. Like the primary logo, the wreath seal has both one- and two-color versions following the same application guidelines. The wreath seal may appear no less than 0.5 inches high in print or 35 pixels digitally. There is no maximum height; use discretion.

The clear space around the wreath seal is defined above. The clear space around the entire mark is equal to the height of the bottom-most leaf of the wreath, as pictured.

CIRCLE SEAL

The circle seal is to be used exclusively for can and bottle packaging (refer to Packaging section, beginning on page 58). Its purpose is to add more embellishment to the can packaging and serve as a die-cut decal for the neck of the bottle packaging. It will typically be placed on a patterned background as shown on the opposite page. For this reason, the circle seal only appears in one color. It may not be recolored. The circle seal may appear no less than 1 inch in diameter. There is no maximum diameter; use discretion. It should never be applied to digital materials.

The clear space around the circle seal is defined above. The clear space around the entire mark is equal to the vertical distance between the perimeter of the circle and the 'G.'

PATTERNS

The Genesee patterns are primarily used for packaging, but they may also be applied to shipping materials and web advertisements. They have been created with the two primary colors and the two secondary colors. The red pattern may be used freely, but the gold, blue, and green patterns may only be used for packaging materials. The patterns should never be recolored or distorted. The scale of the pattern may vary; use discretion when applying the pattern to various materials so that the shapes are discernable to the viewer.

The patterns are styled in Genesee Red, Genesee Gold, Genesee Green, and Genesee Blue as shown on the opposite page.

June 11, 2016 Jane Robinson President, Marcos Industries, Inc. 241 Washington St Detroit, MI 49855 Dear Ms. Robinson: This is where one would insert a sincere congratulatory statement to a customer. Maybe it's because they were incredibly loyal to the business. Maybe they placed a phenomenal order that raised company profits by 25% through that transaction alone. Or maybe they just really, really admire Genesee beer. Honestly, who wouldn't? It has that rich, historical flavor that so many have loved throughout the years. Right here is where one would cut to the chase. You know, really get down to the nitty gritty of a message. Why are you writing to this customer (in this case, Ms. Jane Robinson, President of Marcos Industries, Inc.) in the first place? Make sure that you're making the reading of this letter worth the customer's time. After all, don't you think that it's a little strange to write to a customer solely because they helped increase your sales? That seems a little selfish. What's in it for them? You really have to think this through because you want them to return to you as a customer. That's a very important part of this letter— building a good customer-business relationship. So, make your words count, don't completely sugarcoat everything so that it's unbelievable, and always make sure your tone is appropriate. Tone is everything in something like this! I hope reading this helped you understand the importance of communication with a customer, and if you actually made it this far, I commend you. I also hope that my writing somewhat made sense—I'm not totally sure that it did, but I hope that you will have confidence in my abilities. Sincerely,

Jenny Hops Head Brewmaster

CANS

Genesee can packaging has undergone a makeover that will help bring it to the foreground and beyond its competitors. The new designs are simple upon first glance, but the featured pattern provides an extra boost of class and elegance. They are unique, attractive, and sure to stand out on the shelves.

The three fan-favorite Genesee varieties are pictured to the right: Cream Ale, Original, and Light.

CANS

The flat can designs feature the wreath, pattern, vertical wordmark, and circle seal. The "New York's Oldest Brewery" tagline is set above the beer variety. Both will be set in Factoria. Below the beer variety is the alcohol-by-volume percentage as well as the size of the beverage in fluid ounces. This will be set in Gineso. United States federal law requires that the labels of alcoholic beverages must carry a goverment warning about the health hazards associated with alcohol consumption. It is absolutely imperative that this warning is applied to all packaging elements.

The Genesee flat can dimensions are 8.3785" x 4.5179", including the horizontal overlap.

BILLBOARD

Billboards should be clean and easy to read, but powerful in their message. Drivers only get a few seconds to read them as they are cruising down the street or highway, so it is important to keep the design simple with no more than a campaign tagline and accompanying visual element. Any text placed on the board will be set in Factoria as it is bold and clear. The contrast between the text and background should be high enough for the average driver to find it legible. A logo must always be present; preferably, it will be the primary logo or wordmark as they both contain the 'Genesee' text.

The billboard pictured features the 'Now Pouring' campaign, promoting Genesee's new expansion across the United States.

MAGAZINE

Magazine advertisements should be appropriate to their environment. An appealing image should be used to entice the reader to try Genesee beer for themselves. Follow the brand photography standards (page 36) when selecting imagery. Alternatively, a small yet powerful image set among negative space will always leave an impression on a reader. A tagline should accompany the image, and the primary logo or wordmark will be placed at the bottom with the "New York's Oldest Brewery" tagline and a reminder to consume alcohol responsibly. Do not leave this reminder out of the advertisement.

The two advertisements pictured are part of the 'Now Pouring' campaign, featuring both the United States as a whole and Kentucky individually.

WEBSITE

The website is clean and easy to explore. It features a sticky navigation bar that follows the viewer as they scroll down the page. They will be treated to warm photography, a beer finder, brewery history, a webstore, and general information. Only the primary logo may be directly applied to the website; other seals and marks are okay if they are shown in the imagery placed on the page. Web advertisements should feature either the primary logo, wordmark, or wreath seal accompanied by a tagline and call-to-action button. Taglines are to be set in Gineso to balance the button text that is set in Factoria.

The homepage is pictured above and to the far right.

It is making its mark as a brew for beer-lovers in our modern society, but it still has the same refreshing taste that long-time fans know and love.
