Broighter Gold

A great symbol design from the portfolio of Belfast-based Hamill Boskett Dempsey.

There’s a lot of gold in them there fields. At least there was in the fields of Broighter, Limavady. In 1896 a local ploughman, Thomas Nicholl unearthed Ireland’s most important archaeological find “The Broighter Hoard.” It’s now on the same land that golden rapeseed oil is harvested, cold-pressed and bottled by the Kane family. We created a strong elegant brand to position the oil as a premium local product. The symbol is our interpretation of the golden torque, one of the most impressive pieces in the hoard.

Quoted from the HBD website.

I love how the negative space in the stylised torque also gives the impression of oil flowing from the bottle.

  1. Nice and clean. Love the color. The graphic, however, looks to me like the “bladder” graphic a pharmaceutical company is using.

  2. There goes..!
    It is hard to react when we see such beautiful logos and then coincidental (or not so coincidental?) discoveries of similar ones.

    God bless the creative minds.
