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.

  1. This has definitely been one of my favorite branding projects this month. Everything is so well done.

  2. No. 6 Depot is in my backyard :) I love that you are writing about our little town, and their building was once the train station many years ago. They def. have a great aesthetic, and the coffee is wonderfully strong too!

  3. I lusted over this branding/packaging and then visited the coffee shop/restaurant last summer without realizing what it was. When I pulled up and saw their sign, I got so excited! The place is incredible. The food and coffee are amazing and the packaging looks amazing in person. I highly recommend a trip to this place (as well as the Berkshires!).
