The brief: Consolidate and update the design for the Canterbury Oast Trust's leading life skill offer - The RareBreed Centre; deliver all design, signage and marketing collateral.
Solution: A gradual rebrand of the Rare Breed Centre over 2 years consolidated with a new logo in 2015. Creation of a site wide way-finding system, restaurant menus, product packaging, merchendise and website.

It is now one of Kent's most popular attractions with strong brand recognition and loyalty. Twobird continue to work alongside the Canterbury Oast Trust and RBC as their pop-up creative department.
