HISTORY AND PROCESS

This brand work has its functional beginnings in 2018 when the Board began an ongoing industry engagement process to refine its strategic priorities. Through conversations, work groups, surveys and more, strategic plans were developed for our core responsibilities in research, marketing and communications, and the broader organization.

In 2019, Marketing & Communications strategic planning identified a clear industry request: for the OWB to own the statewide work of defining, protecting and promoting the reputation of Oregon wine.

In 2020, with the support of a $50,000 Wine Country License Plate grant, we hired Portland-based Watson Creative and began the work of translating your 60 years of brand equity into an authentic and comprehensive brand identity that we can use to connect with consumers around the world.

The industry engagement and discovery phase included deep dive interviews with winery principals, round table discussions with regional associations, larger workshops that spanned business size and maturity, consumer interviews, field research, an online survey and more. This learning informed all the creative work that followed and allowed us to accurately reflect industry character while serving the industry’s diverse needs.

The resulting brand work will be deployed across all Oregon Wine Board consumer channels throughout 2021.

Regional Graphics – COMING APRIL 2021

Regional character is essential to the Oregon Wine experience, so it had to be essential to the Oregon Wine brand. We have built a suite of verbal and visual tools for the Rogue, Umpqua, Willamette and Walla Walla Valleys, as well as Portland and the Columbia Gorge. These regions all receive a tagline, a headline, and three descriptive pillars for place, power, and purpose.

This language was based on regional input and collaboration to ensure the end result projected an authenticity for each place that is specific enough to be meaningful, but malleable enough to evolve over time.
