Frasers Cafe

February 18th, 2017 § Leave a Comment

Frasers cafe is in Mt Eden, Auckland, and makes (by many peoples opinion) the best cakes and coffee in the city. What they don’t do is update their interiors much, it being 18 years since the space was given any sort of love. We were approached, along with Charlie at Nott Architects (together as Two Right Group) to update the space after the building had been strengthened. As well as making the space more luxe, we created a new logo, website and menu design, as well as supplying some tasty props for the shelves, including an early Viner racing bike.


Boost

February 18th, 2017 § Leave a Comment

Boost are a NZ based web and mobile app company. They approached Gas to update their brand, with a mandate to keep red in the palette. Needless to say while we listened to the client we also couldn’t help playing, making the identity extremely flexible, which is nice.

Mr Go’s

February 18th, 2017 § Leave a Comment

Mr Go’s had been opened for just 3 months before an earthquake made the building unsafe. But in that short time it had created quite a following. Now open again, they’re back serving Bao buns, craft beer and cocktails. Named after an early Chinese market gardener in Wellington, Gas were called early on to develop the brand, creating a suite of logos, website, signage, posters and an unhealthy craving for the Kung-pao cauliflower. Welcome back Mr Go.

 

Aro Cafe Identity

October 3rd, 2016 § Leave a Comment

Aro Cafe is a Wellington institution. Recognised as a highly creative community with a unique mix of students, professionals and goths, the cafe is a hub for the area. To coincide with a new dark interior, evening menu and a couple of Fiona Pardington prints, Gas dug out their black jeans and eye liner, played Cure records and crafted a series of icons for the cafe and associated coffee roasting business. Once you go black, you can’t go back.

We’ve just received these samples of L’affare’s new super premium coffee, in packaging we’d designed late last year. Design by Gas, illustration by the ever-clever Blair Sayer. Robin, fire up the Rocket!

Barking Spider

April 18th, 2016 § Leave a Comment

While we sometimes joke about working for beer, in this case we actually (well, mostly) did. Barking Spider is a small South Island-based craft brewery. Old circus posters were the inspiration. Along with a couple of those 7% IPAs.

Two Right

August 19th, 2015 § Leave a Comment

We’re chuffed to announce a new and more formalized collaboration with Charlie of Nott Architects. Called Two Right Group, it’s a simple way for us to showcase our combined design talents. We first met Charlie Nott when starting concept work for Depot Oyster Bar, and have since become good friends. He shares a passion for great design, good wine, tasty food and craft beer. And fly fishing. But where our passion for trout is, for the moment, spent dreaming of getting some river time (and lessons), Charlie is a bit of a gun. Too bloody right.

Little Flickers

August 16th, 2015 § Leave a Comment

Call it a dream brief. A group of young, (very) smart and talented people get together and decide to create a power company to take on the big boys by selling electricity in a completely new way. Then call it ‘Flick‘. Gas developed the brand strategy, created the identity and helped with rollout of stationery, T shirts and environmental graphics in their new offices. Good folks and clever flickers.

Monica Loves

January 3rd, 2015 § Leave a Comment

The regions deserve more love. While there’s a new bar opening in Auckland every week (and one closing down), Napier hasn’t seen a lot of action. That was until December when a new kid on the block opened (and created by) the good folk at Mister D on Tennyson St. Monica Loves is a grown-up sort of place for people who’ve travelled and love travelling. The name and interior were inspired by a graffiti wall in Verona, near the Romeo and Juliet balcony. As well as branding and graphics, Gas also worked on the interior design and found there’s no shortage of talent in ‘the Bay’. Another great reason to visit.

Beequest make some of the best tasting honey this side of Pooh’s larder. Gas were approached to create an identity and labels for this small producer. Job done! A big thanks once again to illustrator Lisa Moes for making us look good.
