Ayinger remains one of the few breweries around Munich that is locally owned and independent from the big corporations. The main focus of the new design was regional production. This was emphasised by creating an original Munich, gothic-like font, as well as an appropriate advertising campaign.

Redesign of Lettering
Redesigning the Lettering
Upper and lower case, as well as ’sans serif‘, are a unique choice of lettering in the beer market. Thus, utilising these characters as part of Ayinger, the writing will appear strong and clear whilst still conveying a sense of quality and character. Typedesign: Jürgen Weltin
The Munich gothic font accentuates Bavarian tradition, conveys the pleasure of consuming beer and is easily memorable.

Redesign of Labels
New Labelling System
The labels were purposefully coordinated with one another to make them quickly readable and memorable at the point of sale. The brand name ‘Ayinger‘ is printed on the same part of every label to ensure easy recognition. There is a brief, but eloquent, written description which outlines the quality and character of each beer subtype. The various sorts of beer are identified by an appropriate colour scheme and relevant graphical elements. As a finish, metallic golden paint frames the main features and details of the design.
Marketing and Advertising Campaign
Design of Posters
The close bond with the township of Aying, as well as the festivals and events held in conjunction with the brewery, are important aspects that help make Ayinger the exceptional establishment it is. Ayinger symbolises not only Ayinger beer, but spring in Aying, parish fairs in Aying and other important local traditions. These activities, which epitomise what it means to be Bavarian, can effectively be advertised on posters, post cards, beer mats and other sellable merchandise.
