The Coolest Cafe in Town Canteen – Shop Design and Signage




Julia reached out with her latest business venture to fill the vacant shop on Kinghorne Street in Nowra. A takeaway lunch business model, using wholesome foods for a healthy lunchtime option – a nice counterweight to the three McDonalds all within a 5km radius of each other. Julia had some big windows to fill and not one large window either, they are broken up into panels.


Knowing the street and seeing the standard of the signage on Kinghorne (many that I have designed) I knew to make an impact we will need to add a pop of colour and really do something special and in line with the business model.


What a head-turner! The bold yellow has really popped against the dark grey building and black trim. The interior style with lots of plywood and foliage compliment each other greatly in a Scandi-style pop-up shop.

“We are so proud of our signage, we really stand out and it’s given us the best start!  Thank you for your incredible job ❤ we love your style”
