Good Food, Good Vibes
A long-time favorite of the St. Pete office since its opening over two years ago, Pacific Counter is on the docket for some fresh design love from Top Hat’s Florida office. Our team has been hard at work designing their new website experience, complete with a visually stunning online ordering process that will boost their take-out game to a whole new level. This redevelopment included an in-depth food shoot, resulting in over 100 final images to capture the full breadth of the menu. Stay tuned to see the polished site real soon.
Light it Up
Ryan Cowles’ mother was a natural homemaker, an expert in hospitality, and (as Ryan puts it) “whiskey in a tea cup.” After losing her to a hard-fought battle with cancer, Ryan decided to honor her memory by channeling the vast amount of knowledge she bestowed on him to create an artisanal brand of his own, adorned with her maiden name. Her story lit the fire within us to create a brand that could proudly carry the torch. Elegant and decorative, yet full of contemporary visual cues, we equipped Wingate Apothecary with a statement brand designed to stand the test of time.
Mas Tequila, por favor
From the duo that brought St. Pete its favorite cuban and mediterranean eats comes a new cocktail bar that’s sure to become the Edge District’s best kept secret. We wish we could say more, but you’ll just have to keep your eyes on the ‘gram to get more details.
Recently arriving in the Sunshine City from its birthplace in Cape Cod, The Pilates School tapped Top Hat St. Pete for a robust Brand Strategy to boost its relevance in a new market. Not only did we deliver a comprehensive strategy document, but the St. Pete team even offered up a new brand identity to transform The Pilates School aesthetic along with its clientele. The boys down in Florida stretched more than their creative muscles, and even got to try out a private pilates class for the first time.
better than booze
Responding to the St. Pete team’s Design Relief initiative, Kava Culture approached Top Hat to create a suite of fresh can designs for their newly established company, Botanical Brewing Co. We started with a deep-dive into the beverage, understanding what Kava and Elixir really are at their core, and brainstorming how we could translate the proper visuals to represent the product on the can art. The result was a vibrant set of cans with a custom tropical pattern and stand-out color combos. Be on the look-out for this delicious booze-alternative on tap at a location near you.
