A Carlsberg & Brooklyn Brewery collaboration as ipulse as their sole designated creative partner.

In another sign of Hong Kong’s blossoming love affair with craft beer, Carlsberg announced the news of a new collaboration with New York’s popular Brooklyn Brewery.

They approached ipulse to handle the entire project from inception to execution. The range, we developed and named HK YAU – the character YAU <<友>> means ‘friendship’ and is used here to reference the collaboration between passionate peeps that produced the brews – includes three new beers we also named that use local flavours and recipes with a North American influence.

The YAU spirit is about the power of comradery and community.

It’s about shared passion, like minds and, at the end of the day, people.

Color & material

The main HK YAU brand colour is Hong Kong Red, as an agency, we suggested suitable colours and the red that was chosen by the client because it is synonymous with Hong Kong.

For the three beer varients, Lager, Wheat and Pale Ale, we worked with neon Pantones to translate the concept of Neon lights onto all packaging and POS.

Pantone: 1795C

#D22630

Pantone: 915C

#004876

Pantone: 361C

#43B02A

The Challenge

Create a craft beer brand that Hong Kongers will proudly adopt as their own.

Carlsberg looked to engage with our full suite of services and depended on our agency to take the journey from research, planning, architecture into execution for the entire brand and work with them over an eighteen-month period to a successful rollout.
