Cafe design, development and project management
The Norfolk Store is a Cafe and Store located in the Norfolk Island International Airport Terminal. 2899 Design purchased the existing kiosk in 2013 and redesigned and contracted a complete rebuild. Over a 6 month period we designed and rebuilt the cafe and rebranded it ‘off-site’ Then, in a 2 day window between flight services to Norfolk Island, we worked as project manager to oversee the complete removal and refit – ensuring no disruption to airport passengers and cafe customers. The business was purchased and re-developed in many ways – both physical and structural. The theming of the business is an ‘Old General Store’ which plays to the demographic of traveller to Norfolk Island and also ties in with the island’s colourful history and culture and uses the unique and beautiful Norfolk Pine timber throughout. Central to the design is a custom made 8 metre counter that is all one piece of meticulously stitched timber pieces. Perhaps most important, we implemented branding and company guidelines to ensure staff and customers were offered consistency in theme and service, which in turn establishes a platform for growth. Within 1 year we have quadrupled the business turnover.
Please note the design of the logo (which we think is great!) was not created by 2899 Australia. 2899 created a design brief and contracted the initial branding and identity package from Australian Based Designer, Russel Pistun.
