Retro inspired branding for The Penny Drop Cafe by Pop & Pac

This chic, retro-inspired branding was created by the clever lot at Melbourne-based agency, Pop & Pac, for The Penny Drop Cafe.

Offering a "new perspective on food and coffee" to the Box Hill area, the desire to bring a sense of “Brunswickness” to the “Chinatown of the East”, informed the project from start to finish.

The team explains: "Inspired by the site’s context, a name and conceptual vision was developed by the graphic design team for an experience not before seen in this area of Melbourne’s East.

"Pennies provide inspiration throughout; evident in brass menu finishes, the shapes of business cards and coasters, and use of circular elements.

"Bill folders are reinterpreted as leather wallets. The result is a comprehensive suite of collateral, including custom typeface, menus, coffee cups, stickers, hoarding and signage."
