At Chartreuse we love a new place to nosh, especially one that we had a hand in designing. The new Cornucopia Place, along with it’s sister Bridgeport Cafe, gave us the opportunity to do just that. Together with our clients at Burton, Bell, Carr Development, we helped open the new spaces to the Kinsman neighborhood. The two spaces combine to create a healthy cafe and a community gathering space, complete with cooking classes and food and wine tastings.
We designed a cohesive system to work with the existing Bridgeport Cafe identity and using vegetable silhouettes and a crisp green palette.
New projects included the grand opening invitation suite, street banners, menu design, food truck design and the launch of the Bridgeport Cafe website. The invitation was sent out in a bright green envelope, and came complete with a napkin wrap fastening with a Kinsman Fresh sticker, concealing the details underneath.
Big thanks to our friends at Jakprints for helping make our project come to life. We’re proud to be part of this great project, and happy to brighten a developing Cleveland neighborhood.
We recently had the pleasure of creating a ‘fresh’ new identity for Stella, an artisan food brand cropping up in local farmers markets in Cleveland and Bozeman, Montana. Comprised of fresh and seasonal jams, jellies and juices, Stella really was a sweet project for us. Named after the client’s grandmother who taught her how to make preserves, need to embody the crisp feel of organic produce while remaining clean and sophisticated. We created a brand with lots of room to grow, with modern typography, a custom S symbol and bright colors.
We created full business cards for the client to share, as well as mini-cards for her farmers market display. Pre-printed customizable label templates allow for flexibility and kitchen experiments, but still create brand unity.
We’re looking forward to hearing her progress, and hope to check out a Montana farmers market soon!
We couldn’t be more thrilled for our client Hinkley Lighting on their wonderful feature in the May/June issue of Lonny Magazine.
Launched in October 2009, Lonny is a bi-monthly online magazine that focuses on lifestyle and home decor.
The article primarily features advice on stylish, well-executed outdoor landscape lighting, but also showcases some of the exquisite lifestyle photography that we have concepted and styled along with the team at Hinkley.
Congrats on the great press for a local design and manufacturing company out of Northeast Ohio.
It’s no secret that we at Chartreuse keep close tabs on Lakewood happenings and are always up for dedicating time and talent to the community we’re proud to be a part of. When friend and fellow Lakewood-ite Ryan Nowlin approached us about creating an identity for his upcoming City Council campaign, we actually saw stars.
Ever since Scott Thomas’s fresh and pivotal Obama Campaign swept designers of the nation into a political frenzy, we couldn’t help but hope that we too could someday collaborate on a civic-centric project. Our golden ticket had arrived! We worked with Ryan to develop a visual identity, then to meet the many tangible needs of his upcoming campaign: event banners and signage, apparel and digital components for social media and e-mail communication.
Congratulations to Ryan, who was appointed as a member of the Lakewood City Council in 2011! We look forward to all of the positivity and commitment you will continue to bring to our beloved city.
Are you or someone you know feeling the urge to serve and run a effective but stylish campaign? Give us a call and we can help you develop your campaign brand, we promise nothing dull!
At this year’s Cleveland Home and Garden Show, there was a shiny new booth on the block. Patton Painting, a painting and contracting business located in Westlake, Ohio partnered with Chartreuse to develop and design their colorful new booth for the annual exhibition.

From the larger than life paint swatch deck to the refreshed logo and cheerful banner, the booth was a gleaming example of good design. The guys over at Patton Painting were so excited and involved in the whole process they actually took it one step further by building custom booth cabinetry, making a series of colored display boxes and a smaller scale swatch deck that their sales force could use to stir up conversation with attendees. Great work Patton Painting, we were proud to be part of your trade show design development.
(Look! The paint swatch deck is almost as tall as Michelle)
By the way, there is still time to get in on their “Will Work For Food” campaign. Hire any painter ($349) or carpenter ($429) for a day’s worth of work and they will donate $100 of that to the Cleveland Food Bank. It truly is a wonderful promotion from a civic-minded local business. Check them out at www.pattonpainting.com
