Green inside and out

Tuckshop‘s sustainability-minded owners — and good friends of ours — were clear on their aim: healthy, seasonal food and great coffee served thoughtfully (all packaging needed to be fully compostable, all practices eco-friendly) in a relaxed spot on the main street of Matakana.

Knowing Dan and Anna were super serious about being eco, we responded tongue-in-cheek to the oft-mentioned catch-cry of ‘greenwashing’. Not satisfied with just one shade of green, we used as many as we could throughout the brand and environment. One might not find a more green cafe (inside and out) as this one. The design is grounded in a simple and single-minded typographic system, based on old modular signage systems, in reference to classic tuck shops and the cinema site the cafe is situated on.

One thought on “Fresh from the field — Tuckshop, Akin

  1. Such a shame the hard work has been eroded by the new owners (who took over on Best Awards night), cluttered the space and painted it pink! Lovely project.
