A compact, portable, grilling experience.​

What We Did

True to its brand, the ‘Elevate Grill’ takes the portable grilling experience to a whole new level. It features professional-grade, cast-iron grill plates and high-capacity, stainless steel burners. It’s the largest travel grill on the market, but its innovative design is what makes it the big winner in the ultra-portable class. Its durable structure transforms into a handle that, when lifted, folds the grill into a compact shape that packs and goes. Of primary importance to its design was to simultaneously maximize functionality and portability. Its clever engineering is complemented by a unique grill pattern and handsome geometric lines. Elevate’s brand identity, product packaging and branding was thoughtfully designed to represent their innovative products and forward-thinking culture.

We aim to create solutions that are relevant and impactful, using our approach to grow our clients’ businesses.

We approached the creation of the Elevate Grill with a deep understanding of the emotional resonance that a product can hold.
