A rebrand and new website for The Knife Merchant Aus
A successful re-launch for an Australian Business.
My team and I at fruitful group were engaged by The Knife Merchant Australia to design and build a website including developing branding so they could sell their products online.
It was a big meaty site (pun intended!) with over 140 products to feature in the online shop.
Introducing The Knife Merchant Aus brand
The Knife Merchant Aus is a cut above, providing premium quality knives for fishing, camping, kitchen, butchering and outdoor lifestyle.
The brief was simple - a professional, easy to navigate website to showcase their wide collection of knives.
The owners had a merged their two passion, fishing and cooking in the kitchen into this business.
"I wanted to supply people with the opportunity to access good quality products to process their fish, prepare their dinner and do it at an affordable price with ease."
Having used the Victorinox brand for over 20 years, they hand selected the best quality and specialty knives for the site focussing on customer segments fishing, butchering, kitchen and lifestyle.
In developing the brand we went with a colour palette to stand out in the industry which was traditionally blues and greys. The colour palette inspired by salmon skin and flesh colour and fitting with their values of integrity, quality and sustainability.
To make the font unique we sliced the letters on a diagonal and used a knife blade on the 'e'. We also created sub-brands for each of the categories - fishing, lifestyle, kitchen and butchering.

Collections for shop categories - fishing, kitchen, butchering and lifestyle
