Smak Dab Mustard

Smak Dab is a delicious Winnipeg-based gourmet mustard brand. As a fast growing business, they were looking for a refreshed representation of their brand that is true to the youthful and creative nature of its founder. Through thoughtful art direction, brand narrative, and photography, we developed Smak Dab’s new website, business card, marketing materials and a social media campaign on Instagram to support the launch of the new website and a new mustard flavour.

caffeine routine

This photo series is an exploration in our own creativity within the studio, inspired by coffee (and perhaps our newly acquired espresso machine and coffee beans from De Luca’s). Drawing from a collection of beautiful tactile ceramics, wooden surfaces and utensils made by the hands at Root Cellar design collective, using elements (fire and dust) and materials (clay and wood) found in Manitoba – we photographed the arch of our coffee desires throughout a day.

We made and drank quite a lot of coffee that morning, crowded into our small studio kitchen full of morning chat. Shoot days are extraordinary. And, yes, the coffee is some the best we’ve ever tasted – robust and delicate at the same time and not in any way short of caffeine.

In the morning, we sip coffee and simple accompaniments steeped in a pool of morning sunshine. Toast and jam. Buttery pastries. Fruits and cheeses.

At noon – something savoury with moody espresso 

Late afternoon, our tired eyes get help from sugar and a late mild coffee with milk – just enough to keep us going.

Morocco

Morocco is visually striking and so palpable, both in its aridity and its lushness – a country of pinks and blues.

These photos were taken in the city and country side of Marrakech for the Capaldi Luxury Hotel, located just beyond the bustle of the city.
