Located in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York State along the rolling hills of Seneca Lake, Red Jacket was originally planted in 1917.

Today, the orchard and juice company is managed by the second and third generation of the Nicholson family. Starting with Joe and Emily Nicholson, Sr. in 1958, they have spent over 50 years mastering the art and science of quality fresh fruit and juice production.


Red Jacket Orchards needed a highly experiential online home to introduce their new juices and immerse viewers the unique flavors. Rich in animation and graphics both bold and subtle, this story-telling site is a joy to visit.


We helped Red Jacket build, design and develop the packaging for two subrange lines: Joe’s NY Style Lemonade and Stomp Artisanal Nectar.

Web Design

Far too often, responsive web design equals compromised web design. We knew from the outset that this would not be the case for Red Jacket. Pollen delivered a stunning set of responsive designs, each page telling a unique visual story, each maintaining its impact through all screen sizes. This is what responsive is about – maintaining the experience and improving the usability.

POS, Environmental & Ad Design

Pollen Brands developed a series of conceptual visual graphics to explore promotional possibilities for Red Jacket. The results were fun. Whimsical and certainly eye-catching.

Pollen Brands is more than just another design shop looking for another project. Ultimately, they created a web site that was fresh, dynamic, and easy for us to manage internally. We enjoyed working with John and Joey (and their team), and look forward to continuing to improve and build out the site over the coming years.

Pollen spent hours on-site, filming the cold press process, then with the same care and craftsmanship that goes into the juice, we created a video encapsulating the cold-press process.
