It's always good to see a new project make its way out into the real world. We've been working with Lisa from the Harbour Tavern on her new venture, Number Four Pizza Cafe which has recently opened on the St Austell Business Park here in Cornwall.
We've created a logo, website, menu designs and photography for the cafe. A requirement for the logo design was to keep its original outline shape - this is out of respect to the previous owner and also to keep consistency with the existing decor of the cafe.
Congratulations to Lisa and her team on the opening of Number Four - we're looking forward to heading up there soon for lunch!

My main discipline here at DR is stills photography, but it's nice every now and again to take the time to experiment in a medium that isn't so familiar. So I took the opportunity to make a 30-second video about our favourite coffee spot, Tatams, in Portscatho. The early morning light was beautiful, the coffee was brewing and the smell of croissants baking was absolutely divine.
It was shot entirely on a little Canon G7x which I've found to be a powerful tool for video clips, the quality is fabulous. It takes a great RAW file as well so it makes for a mean piece of camera kit that fits in your pocket. Roughly edited together in iMovie, it came together pretty well for just a personal bit of work. I will be working to further develop simple video clips such as this and hopefully begin to incorporate it into what we can offer here at DR.
Of course, I did a patisserie edit as well.... why wouldn't I?
