Noosa, meet Mexico
As fate would have it, we first met as strangers on the street. Through very unlikely, yet fortunate circumstances, Dan helped a family member with directions which ultimately lead us to an introduction to Bree and Andrew, the owners of Xalapa Craft Taquería y Café in Noosa.
We had heard whispers of an exciting new business venture opening on Hastings Street, so discovering it was authentic Mexican with a Noosa twist was like music to our ears! We were excited to be on board and happy to support a new business, especially one that supports local produce wholesalers across the Sunshine Coast.
Serving up authentic Mexican craft tacos, coffee, smoothies, elixirs and tonics from a vibrant taqueria nestled in the bustling heart of Noosa, you’ll find the delicious Xalapa. After years of inspiration and influence from their travels, it has been wonderful to bring their vision to life through the creation of their logo and website.
Logo Design and Branding
It was clear from the beginning how important the branding and design of Xalapa was to Bree and Andrew, after all it was the brainchild of their travels and dreams. Drawing inspirations from Mexico, the branding and logo incorporated soft pastels and a water coloured cactus. This is evident across all elements of the brand – from the menus, to the packaging, coffee cups, cafe decor, signage, as well as their social media pages and website.
Website Development and Management
The Xalapa Noosa website needed to incorporate a number of features including a two menu, click to call for ordering, links to social channels and maps feature to provide directions to the cafe. Above all, it needed to accurately represent Xalapa and tell their delightful story, highlighting what makes them so special and a stand out for Hastings Street diners. It was also crucial that the website was fast to load, mobile responsive and efficient so potential customers could browse the menu and find directions on their mobile while on the go. We love this bright and festive website and Andrew and Bree are thrilled their beautiful website reflects the look and feel of the taqueria.
