Celebrating the legacy of a historic restaurant and tavern.

The Deer Lodge has been serving the community of Ojai, California since 1932. We dug into the past to capture the heart and soul of this iconic landmark.

A few miles up Highway 33 from downtown Ojai, the Deer Lodge has been serving locals and travelers alike for almost a century. It’s seen many changes over the years, from a gas station and general store to a restaurant with a full bar and live music on the weekends, and the building itself feels like a living, breathing piece of Ojai’s rich history. We were asked to reinvigorate this classic brand and produce a marketing campaign that conveys what the Deer Lodge is all about.
