Pistonhead Crude Oil
Pistonhead is a brand from Brutal Brewing that has previously launched a number of conceptual beer variants – all inspired by Kustom Kulture aesthetics. Neumeister was assigned to create an expression in line with the current identity, yet allowing a growth of future brand extensions. There was also a need to stretch the brand for a different kind of alcoholic beverage.
Pistonhead Crude Oil is a chili based liquorice shot. Its iconic Calavera skull is the main sender and works as an integrated sub-brand to the Pistonhead name. Printing technique, typography and handling of details are more essential than for any prior line extension. The Kustom Kulture aesthetics simply had to be enhanced even further, preparing the brand to enter a wider spectrum of product categories – without losing its recognition.
