Best of the Best 2011- Café on the Green
Each year at S. Walter Packaging we hold our “Best of the Best” contest—an employee packaging contest where our own salespeople showcase the best packaging that they’ve worked on and then every employee votes on their favorite of the bunch. The votes have been cast and the tallies have been counted—now we will highlight each of our winners in special blog posts. Congratulations to all our winners and thanks to all of our participants.
Last time we looked at Cristal Optics and the tropical new packaging we crafted for them.
Here is the next of this year’s winners, beautiful packaging for Café on the Green in Morristown, New Jersey.
Owned and operated by newlywed couple Jon and Vita McGloin, and located in the thriving community of Morristown, Café on the Green wants to be known for their exquisite artisan gelatos. The café takes pride in bringing its customers the best in “Old World” comfort, but with a whimsical twist. With over 20 mouth watering and unique flavors of gelato, including the truly special fig flavor, and a hip and healthy menu, the café is a one-of-a-kind place that evokes that nostalgic and “lived in” feel you get when you visit grandma. With its antique furniture and décor, Café on the Green can’t help but feel like home. In addition to their magical gelato, Café on the Green has organic artisanal coffee, classic ice cream, iced dessert delights and classic bistro fare that you can enjoy in their quirky establishment.
When it came to their packaging, the café was looking for their logo to capture the special antique store-front design of their shop, especially focusing on the store’s awning shape and gooseneck lamps which adorn the shop’s window. In addition to that, gelato, the café’s signature dish, had to be showcased, so the multi-scoop design became an integral part of the final design. The entire branding overhaul led to this warm and inviting line of packaging that includes bags, mugs, business cards, cups, cup sleeves, and a custom pastry box for their miniature pastries that look like works of art in their own right.
Café on the Green is very excited about their new business and their new line of packaging, and S. Walter Packaging is happy to have helped them “Carry Their Brand Further!”
