corporate identity

No. Six Depot

i will not hesitate to say that i judge my choice of coffee places pretty harshly by their cover – in other words, if i don’t know anything about them or their coffee (or tea, or food, or whatever) then i will make my decision to go there, or not, based solely on their design aesthetic. to me a beautiful representation of your space, product and just general vibe totally mirrors the quality of what you’re providing.

that said, i would pay a visit to No. Six Depot in a nano-second-heartbeat if i ever found myself in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts. their beautiful corporate identity design was done by Nashville based Perky Bros, whose clever wrapping paper slash backgammon board design put a huge smile on my face.

No. Six Depot is a family owned, small-batch coffee roaster and café nested in the beautiful Berkshires. Located in a historic train station on 6 Depot St, they serve teas, salts and coffee from small farms and roast on location. Their identity juxtaposes a mix of unique rural and modern elements — drawing inspiration from their own backyard railroad and unique approach to keeping it simple and making it true.

the book club

this place looks really awesome, the book club is situated in a former victorian warehouse in the east end of london that’s been renovated into a new venue for eating, drinking, meeting & dancing.

bringing together wit, wisdom and enough food and drink to see you through from early breakfast to a nightcap at last orders at the bar, the book club offers a new cultural revolution to the east end’s social scene. the book club fuses lively, creative events and late night drinking seven days a week with an alternative menu of brain-teasing and mind-expanding thought for food in the form of workshops, talks, cultural showcases, parties, ping pong, pool  and the best in new music.
