How Ooni adds a slice of fun to their brand

Pioneers of the portable pizza oven
One of our favourite clients, Ooni, has a joyous brand that cleverly expresses its fun-loving nature and passion for pizza.
The Edinburgh-based pizza oven manufacturers are well aware of the impact branding can have on a business after changing its name from Uuni to Ooni in 2018, as it became an international company with HQs across the globe.
Ooni's first project with Made by Cooper was custom pizza socks that adapted the classic Argyle pattern to ingeniously represent a golden pizza crust, saucy base, delicious mozzarella, and fragrant basil leaves.
The socks were a huge success as people snapped them up off the Ooni website as perfect stocking fillers and birthday presents for pizza enthusiasts across the world.
Pepperoni pizza is a classic, so it was no surprise when Ooni came to us with this iconic enamel pin badge design, but this is no ordinary slice of pepperoni pizza. Can you spot their clever hidden surprise?
Ooni used this fun series of embroidered patches to unite their customers and form the Back Yard Pizza Society, a hungry band of pizza lovers who swear their allegiance to pizza and loyalty to the Ooni club by proudly displaying their "membership" badges front and centre on bags, jackets, and aprons.
Their loyal fans flock to Ooni's social media pages to share pictures and videos of mouth watering pizzas, Ooni ovens in action, and some incredibly fun-looking backyard pizza parties, with over 1 million fanatics across all platforms.
The company hosted 'Ooni Day' to raise some much-needed dough for hunger relief charities, and Ooni donated £1 for every pizza registered by their customers and fans on their website, which raised £58,749 for good causes. They asked us to make the official Ooni Day pin badges that we shipped to their HQs in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, and Finland.
More Than Merch
Ooni is an excellent example of how Made by Cooper can help you enhance your brand without taking life too seriously.
