  • Boyd's Coffee, a Portland mainstay since 1900, came to us to help relaunch their brand, which hadn't been refreshed since the nascent days of the Northwest coffee movement. Working with the inimitable Austin Howe on concept and copy, we mounted a parallel campaign of advertising and rebranding, based upon Boyd's history as a good, dependable cup of coffee. Armed with market research provided by our partner Michael Connell at Commonwealth Seattle, we leveraged Boyd's extensive historical archives and numerous innovations to launch a comprehensive new identity as the Everyman's coffee brand that grew up with Portland.
