“Depo” is an old storage basement converted into a coffee roaster in Istanbul, Turkey. The co-owners Serkan and Hakan who love industrial, old school, garage vibes and third wave coffee asked me to work on their branding and packaging design in January 2018, while they were working on the interiors.
The most exciting part about this project is that I not only designed their logo, strategy, packaging, enamel mugs, t-shirts and other brand collaterals, but also became very good friends with them and learned a lot on the way about business, coffee and craft. We kicked off a few other exciting projects a month after the completion!
