We created a sophisticated new brand for South Australian icon, Golden North.
Golden North ice cream is an iconic South Australian brand, known and loved across the state. Looking to increase its brand awareness nationally, the family-run business approached Tiny Hunter. The aim? To make the rest of the country love their brand as much as their home audience.
To start, we needed to understand what it is that makes South Australian’s love Golden North so much. Why do people light up when they talk about this brand? After a body of research with our partner Leap Insight, we discovered that it was the nostalgia around the brand that warmed the heart. People have grown up with Golden North. They have beautiful memories of ice-cream on Sunday nights with the family, treats at Grandma’s house and fun and laughter with friends. This is a special brand. We retained all the goodness that exists but just modernised the look to reflect the quality of the produce. We rewrote the brand story to focus on heritage, family history, and the provenance of ingredients.
The new brand has been rolled out across multiple flavours and product ranges, and has been well received by both loyal customers and internal stakeholders. Already stocked nationally in IGA supermarkets, since the rebrand Golden North has been in talks with various other national stockists. Watch this space.
