The Black Berry Cafe
When we hired Rose and her team to help with branding our coffee shop I had a couple of expectations. I expected to get colors and logos and design elements. I also expected to get ideas on how to share our concept with our target customers. What I did NOT expect was that Rose, after a couple of zoom calls, would be able to peer into my soul so deeply and extract the very essence of a dream that I lacked words or images to describe.
She gathered cues from my business plan, tone, body language, limited creative expression, and a random Pinterest board and created something magical. Our logo, design elements, and branding are SPOT ON!!! One of the most impressive features of the work is that this project required her to deeply immerse herself and gather the voice and the vibe of a DOPE coffee shop that honors and celebrates Black people and OUR culture.
Well done, sister. Well done. (Insert hugs)
