Multimedia beer experience 09. November 2017 ‐ Interior Design

Guests of the "Störtebeker Shop & Taste" in the Elbphilharmonie are now awaiting an award-winning tasting experience. Together with MuSe Content, wertmarke has developed a multimedia concept that won the Red Dot Award for Communication Design. In addition to various entertaining videos on large-format screens, the heart of the installation, the "place2learn" station, was praised in particular. She supports the beer sommelier as if by magic in his presentation. Thanks to the RFID code on each bottle, he simply has to place it on the station and the appropriate explanation video will appear on the screen.

20 Jahre wertmarke 05. November 2017

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our employees, customers and network partners, some of whom we have been working with for the past 20 years, for their hard work and commitment. That's why we celebrated - together with around 130 guests in a former Gin-Manufaktur, just as it should have done in Hamburg, right in the middle of the neighborhood. The marching band Tätärä provided the right music for a roaring party. And the best part was of course the gifts, but not for us. Because instead of gifts we wanted donations. A total of 1.000,- Euro was donated to the children's hospice "Sternenbrücke" in the form of colourful painting supplies.

German Packaging Award 2017 24. October 2017 ‐ Packaging

With a so far unique packaging concept, wertmarke holds the flag high at the German Packaging Award - literally, because the visual highlight of the new Eisbock beers from Störtebeker is the red, waving flag on the bottleneck. For this technical sophistication, a labeling machine that is unique in the world and possesses only Störtebeker was developed. Another eye-catcher is the split, ice-grey shimmering label made of cold foil. Its appearance underscores the icy production process of the fine enjoyable beers. The concept thus stands up to a large international competition and qualifies for the World Star of Packaging.

CANUSA user-friendly 20. September 2017 ‐ Web Design

North America offers countless travel opportunities. CANUSA knows them all. In order to ensure that the user does not lose track of this wide range of products and services, wertmarke relies on usability during the website relaunch. Whether by destination, type of trip or interactive map - simple navigation elements point the way to suitable offers. Of course responsive! Impressive full-screen images provide anticipation and extensive personal tips from CANUSA employees for plenty of content and authenticity. After the catalogue redesign, the website is another component of the corporate design relaunch of CANUSA - and the journey is not yet over.

human movements

A brand in motion. 07. September 2017 ‐ Corporate Design

In everyday life or during sports - movements accompany us everywhere. This makes it all the more important to carry them out correctly in order to prevent posture damage or injuries. Human Movements devotes itself to this task with various sports-specific training courses and offers for workplace health promotion. The idea of movement is continued in corporate design by wertmarke and uses the dynamics of curved lines to symbolize movement in the logo itself. The main colour blue conveys confidence and strength, two important values when it comes to the body. A full-screen web design and modern icons round off the brand identity. www.human-movements.de

CANUSA Corporate Redesign 15. February 2017 ‐ Corporate Design

Among staff members: Why are CANUSA travels so unforgettable? Because they are planned and executed by a lovely professional team. Hence, wertmarke tried giving CANUSA employees a lot of creative space when developing the corporate re-design. Among vividly coloured landscape photographies, city maps and the necessary travel information, employees have a say on their website. Additionally, wertmarke created a second personal web area in the style of a documentation backed up with black and white photographies where costumers can obtain further information about their travels. Supported by icons this concept offers structure and a good sense of orientation to visualise and simplify specific travels plans.

In the footsteps of the Hanse 11. February 2017 ‐ Packaging

The packaging of Störtebeker‘s Waterfront Rum. For the first time in Störtebeker‘s history a rum joined their product range. Wertmarke‘s challenge: Creating a packaging that meets Störtebeker‘s brand authenticity but still has a distinctive look. The result is an anthracite stoneware bottle closed by a wooden cork. The printed picture covering the entire bottle shows the Hanse‘s geographic territory. Of course, Störtebeker‘s red flag cannot miss and therefore seals the cork. Product information on the 5-year old rum can be found on a paper label merging with the bottle‘s grey background colour.

Störtebeker in the Elbphilharmony! 04. November 2016 ‐ Interior Design

Authenticity on three levels. Together with interior architect "fomwaende" wertmarke thoughtfully merged Störtebeker‘s brand environment with the Elbphilharmony‘s extravagant architecture. Interior has to match the beer‘s brand: Thus, the designing team only worked with qualitative materials such as wood, leather and cement. The beer‘s history is shared in written texts decorating walls and pillars. Unique: the beer pumps were specifically designed, guaranteed to catch attention.

The Elbphilharmony... 02. November 2016 ‐ Packaging

...at home - Störtebeker‘s special edition. Just like its real life model the three-piece packaging for Störtebeker‘s special edition is cleverly designed and perfectly shaped. Wertmarke strategically placed the wave-shaped cover with a gap at the bottom hinting at the building‘s plaza on a solid pedestal made of cardboard. Similar to the original building the packaging‘s cover is translucent and has a haptic surface structure reminding of the opera house‘s window disposition. Inside, three product specialties are displayed in an inlay of cellulose fibre. Well thought out: the little red flags on the outside can be used to attach a carrying handle. Plus, by adding a LED light the packaging can be transformed into a luminous souvenir.

Stoertebeker Growler

Freshly tapped: 29. October 2016 ‐ Packaging

Störtebeker as a Growler! Wertmarke specifically designed a new packaging concept for Störtebeker‘s "Eisbock" beer series: distinctive, outdoor proof and definitely sustainable. Once a 0.85l growler bottle is purchased costumers are able to get a fresh refill in respective stores. Striking: Alcohol concentration and the sort‘s name as bold graphic design elements are directly printed onto the bottle. The embossed logo offers a visual and haptic experience. Around the bottle‘s neck lies a hemp fibre string with Störtebeker‘s red flag attached which appears to be a metallic clip for e.g. paper that can be re-used as well.

Icy looking refreshment 29. September 2016 ‐ Packaging

Störtebeker‘s "Eisbock" beer: 4 high(er) percentage beers refined through a special cooling technique. Wertmarke created a shiny icy greyish looking panorama label on cold- stamped foil and its coherent name. Giving the cog a lot of space on its banderole the beer once again circles around Störtebeker‘s key visual. Other graphic accents such as brand, beer kind and alcohol concentration allow a structured and clear look. In contrast to the black and white appearance Störtebeker‘s prominent red flag functions as an eye catcher. Properly packed in a grey wooden looking 4-bottle carry on box - you are good to go!

German Champion, ... 08. September 2016 ‐ Corporate Design

...Ex-Football champion of Hamburg‘s Blue Devils and Personal Trainer Marc Huismann has a new brand appearance. Wertmarke developed a new corporate design, a responsive web appearance and a stall concept at Hamburg‘s cultural festival "Atonale". The logo in the shape of a football and intitals "H"= Huismann and "PT"= Personal Training align with the retro style interior design of his fitness studio being located in a former backyard garage close to the Elbe. Having trained the National German soccer team and clients from various sports Marc develops individual training and fitness programs according to his clients‘ wishes.

Störtebeker is back! 28. March 2016 ‐ Corporate Design

In November 2016 the Elbphilharmony is finally going to open its plaza to Hamburg‘s citizens until its official inauguration in January 2017. The Störtebeker brew manufactury follows back its historical roots to the place where the eponymous pirate Störtebeker once had been beheaded - the Grasbrook. For the first time the brewery will represent itself in three individual gastronomies in which prospective visitors will get the chance to experience Störtebeker‘s brew specialties. Hence, wertmarke developed a new logo scheme for its family brand. The logo shows the stylistic shape of the building with an integrated red Störtebeker flag. The brand designation combines Störtebeker‘s logo lettering and subtitle "Elbphilharmonie Hamburg". The logos for the three individual gastronomies specifically emphasize on the individual key aspects, such as "beer & dine".

CU_SKI

CU | Ski live! 11. January 2016 ‐ Web Design

After the very successful launching of CU | Camper Hamburg‘s online tourism company CU | Travel GMBH & CO. KG brought up its second online booking platform "CU | Ski“. This website especially attracts experienced skiers who love to plan their individual and unique ski trips in the USA or Canada online. Thus, wertmarke developed a corporate and screen design for an innovative responsive user interface which guides costumers easily through the whole booking process. Moreover, a set of around 120 self-explanatory icons, a new brand book and an online style guide were created to give an overview on all the online modules.

The diversity of Störtebeker‘s brew specialties is large. In order to keep track of the most famous kinds wertmarke developed a handy 4-beer sampler set for "Atlantik-Ale", "Stark-Bier", "Roggen-Weizen" and "Keller-Bier".

Gerriet Danz Speaker

Clear the stage for Gerriet Danz! 01. May 2015 ‐ Web Design / Corporate Design

A keynote speaker without a speaker‘s corner? Very contradictory. Wertmarke designs a new homepage and logo for Gerriet Danz - one of the most acknowledged coaches in Germany. The idea: A blog that functions as a realtime megaphone of the "Kreatoriker" Danz. His advise: Do not only think outside the box, but act like it! This claim is tranferred to his innovative logo. The tilted "A" reminding of an arrowhead that points to Gerriet Danz's directive content and strategy as a coach. Wertmarke also applies a three-colour-scheme on the website to demonstrate how colorful and various these new ways can be.

Störtebeker Messestand BioFach

Störtebeker goes BioFach! 24. February 2015 – Messestand

Rough, striking, real: The exhibition stall should represent the brand in an authentic way. Thus, wertmarke designed the "BIOFACH"- stall in the style of Störtebeker's brewing market. The iconic red flag combined with the well approved pallets-optics take the costumers into the world of brew specialties and the Nordic way of life. Here, five kinds of beer are presented - among them the two world champions "Roggen-Weizen" (wheat and rye) and the "Keller-Bier". The culture of brewing and zeitgeist do not only come together in Störtebeker‘s brew specialties but also in their exhibition stand: Ipads with short films which inform about the individual kinds of beer and explain the range of products further enhance the adventurous beer experience.

Strandräuber BioBiermix! 18. April 2014 ‐ Packaging Relaunch

Beer is one of the most natural things in the world - best proven by the new organic mixed beer "Strandräuber“ from Störtebeker‘s brew manufactory. Only organic materials are used in the fruity seasonal beer for which wertmarke designed a congenial rough image. From key visual to packaging - the whole appearance depicts the authenticity and naturalness: The marram grass on the beer glass reminding of long summer days at the beach, while the vintage six-packs especially appeal costumers who enjoy the traditional culture of brewing combined with fresh ideas.

Die neue KW! 02. April 2014 ‐ Corporate Design Relaunch

At the art school Wandsbek young design talents do not only discover themselves, but can also access professional support and education. Who would be the more suitable to approve this atmosphere than students and lecturers themselves? Wertmarke develops a brand strategy which focuses on the insight. The motto claims "communication on eye level". Thus, personal quotes and snapshots from everyday life at the KW shape the brochures, website, image film and information stall. Accompanied with the new logo the whole visual appearance clearly demonstrates the KW‘s main characteristics: Interaction of individuality and teamwork.

Störtebeker Single Malt Whisky

Vintage-Look for Störtebeker. 12. January 2014 ‐ Product Design Latest Developments

Störtebeker - the name represents brewing tradition, the art of distillation and the idea to unite both in one product. As a real Vintage-Whisky Störtebeker‘s Single Malt Whisky was given a label in vintage style. Combined with a stamp "Matured in oak barrels" the whisky‘s packaging portraits the values of quality, tradition and authenticity. This is especially shown in small details, such as the embossed label and the red flag which simultaneously functions as the "opening zip", as they add to the noble touch of the black matt covering box. The success was proven - after 4 months the first edition was sold out.

Garbage - a source of energy 17. December 2013 ‐ Movies Imagetrailer

Garbage is an energy source - this is presented in the new image film which wertmarke produced for the Munich company CONVAERO. The film revolves around Europe‘s largest waste drying plant located in Istanbul which uses the newly developed BioDry technology by CONVAERO to transform household garbage into combustible material. "We want to show that our BioDry technology is a process of natural composting.", says Dr. Markus Binding from CONVAERO.
