Jacob’s Coffee House concept sketches: Part I
September 12, 2011 § Leave a comment
Here are some concept sketches I did for Jacob’s Coffee House in Bath (located right by the Abbey and the Pump rooms for those who want to drop by). The brief was very roughly, something eye catching that informs customers that there is room upstairs to enjoy your coffee. The text would fit neatly inside a door frame that leads the customers up some stairs so I tried to consider how imagery could ease the short walk up. I made some sketches to accompany the text, the interior of the shop feels a little classic yet maybe a little eccentric but welcoming too? So I tried to go for something a wee bit wacky… like birds carrying cake… and a teacup balloon… an owl learning how to make coffee…
Some more concept sketches using the colour of the walls and showing some of my colour suggestions. I kept the colour palette simple and clean which I felt was in keeping with the interior of the shop.
