PACKAGING & GRAPHIC DESIGN | 2020
Errin from Church Street Cafe reached out to me to explore creating some custom cup designs for her bio-degradable cups when they changed coffee suppliers to Little Italy in mid-2020. She legit gave me full creative freedom to create them however also wanted two of them to focus on the proud Indigenous culture of her partner, family and community. Alongside this task was also creating some custom Instagram highlights that connected to her ‘buy me a coffee and tell me I’m pretty’ neon sign in the café.

GATHERING AT CHURCH STREET CAFE
Indigenous Cup Design
This design was inspired by the journey of Church Street Cafe to build a platform for community growth and connection – bringing people to a safe gathering place. CSC is a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere for all near and far! Within the design, you will see the rivers and roads all leading into one, the people in the community and the space of the cafe exploring its uttermost value in Dubbo.
These deadly illustrated cups are now at CSC Dubbo after a year hold back due to the impacts of COVID-19! Working on these was amazing as it was one of my first illustrations projects that I completed over a year ago now. It brought me so much joy as I got to showcase my passion for design whilst representing CSC Dubbo brand, and the family and community culture. The Instagram highlights also feature not only as highlights but also as the Instagram cover image for @CSC_Dubbo.
Another cool design project we did for CSC was creating some custom new Instagram Highlights to speak of her Instagram page and connect to her business branding. We brainstormed icon ideas and meanings for her highlights and brought these to life with a neon pink and brink background to connect directly to the buy me a coffee and tell me I’m pretty sign in the cafe. And we love love love them!
“Following on from a change in our coffee suppliers we were given the opportunity to have personalised takeaway coffee cups. We wanted designs that we could have confidence in and represents both our brand and celebrates the culture in our community and family. After searching online we came across Leticia. Immediately we were impressed with the professionalism shown throughout her socials and contact via both email and telephone. Leticia’s work is top quality and she made the process a breeze. We worked through our ideas together and she was able to come up with cup designs and then social media tiles that we are extremely happy with. We would definitely recommend Leticia’s services to anyone contemplating any design changes.Thanks so much Leticia for all your help and we look forward to working with you some more.”
