Connect & Discover

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 side 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.

Gather & Create

Coffee Cups

We created the designs for these coffee cups in August 2020 however they were officially released in July 2021 due to the impacts of COVID-19. But the wait was so worth as the Dubbo community has embraced them.

Geometric Community Series

This series is all about fun, colour, and love for our community. It showcases our native animals, our zoo friends, diversity (from age, people, style, ethnicity etc.), and our talents.

BILADURANG PASSING SANDY BEACH

This design was inspired by the dreaming and creation of the “Biladurang” Platypus and it’s journey from Narran Lake through the Macquarie River to Flat Rock.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

To learn more – adventure along the Tracker Riley cycle track to the small arched walk bridge, where the paths divide towards the zoo and sport fields. Here you will learn the story of the Duck and Water Rat.

GATHERING AT CHURCH STREET CAFE

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.⠀

INSTAGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

We brainstormed icon ideas and meanings for her highlights and brought these to life with a neon pink and brick background to connect directly to the feel and atmosphere of this popular central based café in Dubbo.

Share & Embrace

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
