Secret Gin Society
Secret Gin Society was a brand born to engage a younger audience and uplift gin sales within the Marriott International Hotel Bars in partnership with Pernod Ricard. The challenge? To create a brand that felt locally relevant despite being rolled out in bars all across Europe. Through careful research and initial strategy, we pushed to go beyond brand elements like the logo & create a unique name, personality & tone of voice, alongside a rich concept narrative and comprehensive photography brief, that would be applied across print, website, and any digital activations.
The impact of the results of the campaign was so significant for Marriott, that we are now launching the Secret Gin Society globally and ramping up experiential elements for 2020.
