Beautiful Winery in Napa

Seems to good to be true — you stop for gas, and find an oasis of pinot instead.
Napa has a new hot-spot, is Tank Garage Winery— an old vintage service station
transformed into a super cool wine country destination. It’s the perfect casual
road stop to try some new wine, take in the scenery or snap a few good photos.
Not a huge fan of wine in general, I’m more a of craft cocktail gal, but I love
the name, branding and use of old materials.

Beautiful Branding+Design

I adore this branding and interior design by Biasol in Austrailia for Kitty Burns based on a historic story. The concept of Kitty Burns is a tale of two sisters in Australia. The playful character and rich history of the Skipping Girl, nicknamed “Little Audrey” and also known as the “Vinegar Girl” create the concept and title of Kitty Burns. The original Skipping Girl was modeled on 5 year old Kitty Minogue in 1915 when her brother sketched her in a winning competition entry for the vinegar company. An updated version of the skipping girl was recreated a short time later where in fact the elder sister of Kitty Minogue, Alma Burns was used to create the current Skipping Girl seen today.

hero-about

Kitty Burns was born out of tying their two names together to create a fictional character – reminiscent of the rich history of the area that reflects the serene, quiet yet playful nook where the spirited sisters liked to skip. Kitty Burns is conveyed as a home away from home for the residents of an apartment complex. A pitched roof design was introduced and incorporated into all elements of the project. The home concept was also carried through into the brand identity inspired by The Skipping Girl story creating a dual personality for the brand. The contrasting elements of the Kitty Burns personality are creatively woven into every design element- Kitty’s fun loving, playful personality, juxtaposed with Burns’ more serious and structured side.

Beautiful Pop-Up Coffee Shop

There are few things more important to us first thing in the morning than a morning espresso. It’s often the deciding factor in our daily disposition. Can’t think of a better place to get it than from this beautiful little pop-up cafe in Auckland.

Creatista Café is the brainchild of Nespresso. The space boasts Scandinavian-esque interior, there’s a sofa, lounge chairs and even a dining room table. It’s like sitting in your living room. Beautiful design, branding and product.
