CAFE CHILL IN ELLA SRI LANKA 2016
Five years had passed since the original mural had been painted. Cafe Chill’s proprietor wished for a new look, which reflected his logo and some of the elements of the previous mural that had been created in 2011. At the end of the mural project, four black boards were also lettered. The whole project took 10 days to complete.
CAFE CHILL IN ELLA SRI LANKA 2010-2014
2010 was the year that Louise began painting blackboards as the opportunity arose for a new cocktails board for Cafe Chill (formerly known as Nescoffeeshop) in Ella Sri Lanka. After this new board was so well received and clientel grew, the owner of the establishment commissioned Louise to do several more murals. He was keen to get something above the roof that reflected the character of Ella as well as a new bar mural that was to be a spiritual message. Over the years the hand painted look within Cafe Chill certainly contributed to attracting more traffic. In today’s world, there is an oversight made by many cafe owners to shortcut the branding, signage and decor both inside and outside the establishment. This is a mistake as investing into high quality hand painted signage and murals will create a more welcoming atmosphere and repeat customers are inevitable
CAFE JILARTY AT RAINBOW
Rainbow Beach is a town situated close to Gympie and Noosa Heads. The owners were over the mass produced, common looking vinyl and digital signs and wished for something hand painted and illustrated. Not only is Cafe Jilarty an eatery but also includes an art gallery therefore they wished to project an arty look that was classy and authentic. The branding was redesigned and several on sight blackboards were produced along with a bulk head sign with gold leaf logo. The exterior sign is made of top quality timber, exterior grade paints as well as gold leaf. This exterior sign is designed to last a minimum of 10 years.
LITTLE BONNIE DOT
I was approached by the owners of this mobile vintage coffee caravan to produce a logo that represented a 50s look and feel. Having had many years of traditional hand lettering on hand, and receiving the advice of a client with a well educated design palette, we settled on a shabby chic look. This mobile caravan is hired by many different individuals and the authentic hand painted finish makes it so unique, it stands a cut above anyone else in a similar business. Little Bonnie Dot, as a result of having good taste, good coffee and great service is growing exponentially.
