Newtown Social Club is a cafe and coffee shop located in the Fitzroy district of Melbourne. Following a recent refurbishment, brand design agency Liquorice Studio developed a new visual identity for the cafe that juxtaposes organic, natural wood prints, hand stamped print finishes, a pastel colour palette, unbleached and uncoated material choices alongside the utilitarian and geometric qualities of a neutral typeface, grid based layouts and perforated self adhesive labels. The result is an earthy craft-based aesthetic executed with a consistent, small-scale sense of practicality that neatly reflects the cafe’s interior, locality and handmade, hand selected products.
Reuben Hills is a coffee roastry and cafe located in the Surray Hills region of Sydney, Australia. The cafe’s identity, designed by multidisciplinary creative studio Luke Brown, is an interesting monochromatic mix of bold but breezy sans serif typography, vintage photography and stamp-based print treatment.
Matchstick is a Canadian coffee roaster and retailer that specialises in the hand-crafted preparation of single origin beans sourced from Columbia and Guatemala. Matchstick’s branding and packaging, designed by Stockholm based independent designer Cameron McKague, working under his agency Vitae and in collaboration with Dirk Wright, was created to evoke the warmth and charm of its founders through a playful illustrative style and monogram.
