The origins of
the brand name
I was in search of a word that had a deep symbolic connection to the ocean environment. I felt no other word in the English language was better suited than “BRINY” to convey the ocean ideals. As a Noun Briny is an old English informal word for "The Sea" it's first recorded was back in 1825. As an adjective Briny means of the salty water of the Ocean; human blood contains salt and is naturally Briny!
The iconic “B” of Briny is a symbol not just a logo, deeply rooted in the free spirited ocean vibe we crave. After an epic spearfishing trip, our founder Simon Cox started sketching a symbol that stood for our brands philosophy & Vision.
" I had a vision while submerged on a 60ft freedive in pursuit of a Cubera Snapper, once back in the studio I sketched the first draft of the iconic Briny "B". I stood back and felt it embodied the ideal combination of organic and symbolic form as it embodied an animated sense of marine life."
Every aspect of the brand is fueled from inspiration derived from the ocean and it’s addictive environment.
To be briny is a way of life. When the swell pumping, when the sea has abated you spear, when brought to your brink by a behemoth, we owe homage to this force and pay our respects.
