Brix 27 | A Brand You Can Sip With
Martinsburg’s own Brix 27 has quietly soft-opened it’s doors, adding to the charm and growing bustle of downtown destinations. Housed in the completely renovated space originally known as M. Cohen & Son, a well-known women’s clothing store, the building itself dates back to 1917 and has been a staple of downtown business for a hundred years.
Brix 27 offered a challenge in brand immersion by towing the line of sophistication, balanced with casual tone and creature comforts that both excite and entice. While the style of culinary and wine exploration that Brix 27 offers is popular in surrounding cities, it is truly the first of its kind for downtown Martinsburg, WV.
“We really wanted the brand to be simplistic for the most part, allowing the variety of culinary color, interior design work and atmosphere to lead the way. The black tones and simplistic line art, paired with pops of spice orange, help elevate the otherwise monochromatic identity.” – Jessi Knipe
An Identity That is as Flavorful as the Experience.
From the beginning, the aim of Brix 27 was twofold: to cultivate a community of conversation, where people are naturally enticed to be present with one another, and to deliver an elevated, local dining experience that focused on the art of tasting, pairing and sharing. With the buildings history being a cornerstone of the brand, we chose to play on vintage flare to accent the brand, paired with a worn and timeless texture.
With subtle and simplified brand elements that tie into the buildings birth just before the era of prohibition, a limited color palette and a robust amount of texture within the space, the brand offers a subtle diversity that tows the line between fine dining and “fun dining” as Toby calls it.
Taste. Pair. Share.
More than just a slogan, these three words embody the core of Brix 27’s three touchpoints. The act of tasting, and subsequently the enjoyment of wine discovery. Pairing wine with dishes to explore the tantalizing ways your tastebuds interpret and modify flavors when introduced to one another. And sharing, because we believe that life is more flavorful, enjoyable and meaningful when you are sharing in the experience with your loved ones.

LovelyPixels proved to be a one-stop-shop in helping us redevelop our brand, printed materials and website. They captured our institution exceptionally, truly representing every passion, skill and possibility that James Rumsey Technical Institute stands for.
LovelyPixels enthusiastically took on the arduous task of rebranding our website and packaging, effortlessly making us a more cohesive and up-to-date looking company.
The website design process with LovelyPixels has truly been a collaborative and brand partnership effort on every level. We needed a website that would elevate our digital presence and help us better communicate with our members, community and prospects. LovelyPixels stepped in to take lead on designing our website, ensuring to capture our brand and promote the culture that we stand for.
LovelyPixels did a phenomenal job with our company branding. After giving them a few ideas, they helped mold a professional logo that honestly turned out better than we hoped for! Easy to work with, responsive and great customer service!
I simply could not be happier with our new website from LovelyPixels, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to do a company facelift or to get better visibility on the web.
As a fellow designer and small business owner, I can say that the two words I would use to describe LovelyPixels in both the quality of design work and customer experience are: Perfection and Patience!
Based on previous experiences, I was not expecting the design process to move forward so smoothly. However, the talent at LovelyPixels proved otherwise. Jessi’s ability to visualize and understand exactly what her clients are looking for resulted in a website that allows us to look respectful as we pursue larger federal and state funding for our programs.
