Name & Brand

With an ever-increasing global demand for high end Australian beef, Rangers Valley needed a brand to stand out from the crowd and truly make a mark on the industry.

Authentic, playful, creative and upbeat with a gritty-realism, Black Onyx was born, and it’s everything we ever wanted it to be.

We created a custom illustration of a super good looking pure Angus steer that we nicknamed Rolley. He became the pinup boy for the brand.

Black Onyx has set the standard in branded beef across the globe and the packaging is no exception.

We kept the edgy brand story going until the last moment with the iconic yellow splash and hand drawn steer appearing on the cryovac bag and carton.

This responsive website is designed to be instantly recognisable with Rolley and the iconic yellow splash taking centre stage.

It tells the Black Onyx story, reinforcing why this brand deserves the notoriety and love it’s adorned with by chefs and foodies alike.
