The Crown & Thistle

Pub owners Jo and Richard asked us to transform The Crown and Thistle’s tired branding into something timelessly future-proof and representative of the building’s fine Border heritage.

The Crown and Thistle is a welcoming establishment, popular in the local community and reminiscent of the archetypal British country pub with roaring log fire, real ales and wholesome food.

The story of this pub played a pivotal role in the development of its branding. Jo and Richard wanted cosy branding with a modern twist, a flawless fusion for a traditional pub that has one eye on the future.

We created a stunning thistle illustration that curved into a delicate crown, portraying The Crown and Thistle as a modern pub that was respectful of its heritage.

To maximise impact, the branding was extended to business cards, menus, gift vouchers, and loyalty cards and the brand can now grow knowing the visuals are perfectly in line with their vision.
