When it comes to men’s grooming, there are basically three options – your dad’s barbershop, your wife’s salon, or any joint with clips in the name. So, where can guys go to get a cut, trim and shave in a place that feels like their own? Enter Scissors & Scotch – where classic grooming services, a fully stocked bar and a sleek lounge join forces to create one helluva grooming experience for the modern man. We helped craft a brand that’s sharp, clean, inviting and confident, with a healthy dose of snark – and the occasional expletive. Visually, we honed in on a rich whiskey brown to reflect our style and comfort and a thrilling red that speaks to our fiery side. We embraced the existing Scissors & Scotch logo by incorporating its elements into our visual language. The expressed brand marries badassery and sophistication in all elements to evoke an experience you deserve. With the tagline “do yourself a favor” we invite consumers to join Scissors & Scotch in believing good grooming is every grown man’s right. We’ve helped support their brand efforts in paid social media ads, out-of-home placements, brochures, menus, storefront wraps, tradeshow design, and franchise support, like playbooks, brand guidelines, recruitment kits and more.
