Di Beppe is a casual Italian caffé and ristorante, located in Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood, “inspired by the Italian immigrant’s desire to share a piece of home while living abroad”. Di Beppe is said to honour the sense of deep pride and self-assured nature associated within Italian culture through a classic and authentic Italian dining experience and in the design of its graphic identity, created by Canadian studio Glasfurd & Walker. Drawing on the typographic and iconic character of Italian cinema of the past, Di Beppe’s graphic identity has a confident and immediate visual voice, one that is enthusiastic and loud.

Tennessee-based graphic design studio Perky Bros recently worked with Chris to developed a new graphic identity that would link a variety of assets. These included stationery, business cards, individual coffee bags, tote bags, merchandise, subscription boxes and website.
Perky Bros describe their design as being inspired by one part science and two parts storybook. This can be seen in the systematic use of type and colour, and the variety and character of illustration. These draws together and convey Chris’ commitment to methodically sourcing, roasting and preparing the highest quality beans, his dedication to making specialty coffee a more accessible and friendly experience, and his belief that coffee is only as good as the company it is shared with.
