Kaafi Coffee Company
Helping a barrister reach his goal of becoming a barista
We were approached by a lawyer who’s a coffee connoisseur consumed by the idea of opening the perfect coffee shop in the heart of the city of The Hague. Together with Liqui it was our job to help him make it happen. We worked together on marrying the branding with the interior so that one complimented the other. The outcome was a subtly branded environment that is a perfect place to enjoy a great cup of coffee.
Muni Coffee Co.
Integrated branding and coffee shop design
The branding was all encompassing. Combining both Filipino and European coffee influences it included their own label coffee branding, signage and menu design as well as the website. This was done in conjunction with our sister company Liqui who undertook the actual cafe design for the whole interior including the counter, furniture and lighting. Working together ensured that Muni’s unique coffee brand would stand out in London’s bustling coffee scene.
Chimney Cake Bakers
Eastern European street food comes to a London café
Chimney Cake Bakers was the first collaborative enterprise between Crate47 and our sister company Liqui. Starting with a bold logo design at its core, the brand was softened by a hand illustrated, naive style pattern which was used as sub-branding on all printed items as well as the website. It was also incorporated into the café itself; not only on the shopfront glass but as fabric designs on the stools and hand painted elements on the walls and counter; making a seamless blend between brand and interior.
Fifties influenced surf shack diner comes of age
This is a harmonious partnership of strong brand identity by Crate47, combined with a complimentary interior by Liqui. Despite being a franchise model, this modern take on a retro diner is friendly and informal. Our bold, hand drawn logo is enhanced by vintage style hand lettering and food and drink illustrations that have been used throughout for any print items as well as on the walls as a decorative covering.
Branding with a clear view for a sky high restaurant
Crate47 undertook the branding on this project in conjunction with its sister company Liqui. The two practices focused on all aspects of the design – from the branding on menus through to the furniture and light fittings. The result was an opulent restaurant and bar with an interior that compliments its prime location and a high-end brand identity to match.
A new dawn for speciality coffee shop, in the heart of Dubai
Rise, a speciality coffee shop based in the heart of Dubai, was another joint brand and interior studio collaboration between Crate47 and Liqui Design. We were tasked with creating a shop and brand that had a casual and relaxed feel, but with a mature look and slightly edgy style. The logo was inspired but the morning sunrise, whilst the sub-branding took inspiration from the interior framework designed by Liqui. The client chose our coffee shop startup brand package, which included the design of cups, menu’s and apparel.
Cooking up something different
Inspired by 1930’s cartoons, the brand we created for Bennie’s Brunch fuses an old retro style with minimal, modern layout. This style is carried on throughout all our print items and apparel, making sure the designs are clean and simple, but still maintaining our friendly retro look. The outcome was a brunch restaurant that can stand out from the crowd.
