Food & Beverages

Design plays an increasingly significant role in your food or beverage business. From your menu to the ability to order directly through the website, excellent design can help your brand to leave competitors behind.

Mismatched design across your branding elements can leave a poor first impression.

    In case you were unaware, at least 80% of people will research your company online before visiting your location in person. If your website or app design looks alien compared to the rest of your printed materials, then you’re going to confuse customers and give the impression that you lack a company identity.


    Remember, first impressions are everything when it comes to attracting customers. Good design is a signal to customers that they should buy from you. It’s why companies with a strong design identity outperform companies with a weak one by an average of 219%.

    As a small business ourselves, we know that hiring a team of designers in-house is just not feasible for your local eatery, brewery, or roastery. Nor is paying expensive retainers to creative design agencies when you only need support at certain times of the year.

    Here at CO-LAB, we provide an expert team of freelancers that are ready at a moment’s notice to take care of your creative and design needs. Available on a project-by-project basis, you can pick up and put down talent as and when you need it. 

    By blending the separate categories of design, digital and marketing, we can deliver a holistic approach to maximising both the online and offline presence of your food or beverage business for a fraction of the cost of a traditional design agency.

    We’ve helped our clients across the country to with the following: websites, menu design, print design, promotional design, booking systems, branding/logo design, applications and much more!

    Better value for money on your design projects

    We know that traditional creative and design agencies can seem expensive to a small business. That’s because they take on the project, find a freelancer to deliver it, and then charge you their margin on top of the freelancer’s and staff. At CO-LAB, we are those people, which means you gain access to the same quality of talent for a much more reasonable price because we all work remotely.

    Lean and agile creative support

    We understand that the world of food and drink is continuously fluctuating, that’s why we’re always on standby to lend a hand whenever you need it. From promotional restaurant launch campaigns to implementing design tweaks on an existing menu, we are lean with client budgets and can be flexible to meet your shifting needs.

    High-quality talent that understands your business

    We invest time upfront in learning your business inside and out. Our “talent on tap” solution provides your business with a suite of highly-skilled creative external “employees” that you can call upon when the need arises. By committing time to your company at the outset, our team spends more time producing results and less time asking questions.

    Achieve brand consistency across all channels

    As experienced creative and design professionals, we appreciate the value of brand consistency. In the multichannel world of modern-day food and beverage businesses, your website should reflect the menu presented to your customers at the table and your logo should be tweaked to fit a cup or a glass in such a way that it remains immediately recognisable. We are experts at working across multiple mediums, ensuring your branding remains on point.
