We create notable brands and extraordinary consumer experiences

Client: Venn Coffee
Project: Branding, Packaging, Website

Coming in hot from the heart of the flatlands, Venn Coffee! These guys are already in high demand as local coffee roasters, and have now taken things to the next level with the opening of their cafe in Saskatoon. 


Chad, Casey and Bryn approached us with their new partnership pre-launch, and asked us to work with them on an identity that would inform the experience they wanted their customers to have, but also to capture elements of the past projects and accomplishments that they’ve become known for (cocktails, design, baking, barista skills, and coffee roasting knowledge). 

The mark itself is meant to resemble a venn diagram, while forming the shape of a tree. The word “Venn” is nordic for “friend”, and we chose triangles instead of circles as they are stronger and have more movement (and there are three partners). The colours are a nod to their prairie roots, adventurous spirit, and comforting “stay awhile” experience that the cafe is sure to boast.

We genuinely enjoyed collaborating with this team on their branding, packaging, and e-commerce website, and have been sipping 2 cups a day ever since. Grab a bag of their Guatemala at drinkvenn.com and make yourself a pour over, or head to the alley-way shop and catch the vibe.

Like most things, it’s probably hard to speak on design unless you do it for a living. We came to Fancy with only a handful of garbled ideas and they quickly separated the signal from the noise, hitting it out of the park for us. They also happen to be genuinely great dudes!
