Brand Identity for Mahlo Bar by Gabby Lord

“Mahlo is serious about brunch, while not taking themselves too seriously. We created a fun and quirky identity which extended as far as coffee packaging, copywriting, mural painting and everything in between. Personified, the Mahlo brand is someone you can have fun with and relax around. At Mahlo Brunch Bar you can be sure you’ll always come welcome and you’ll always leave full.”

Gabby Lord is a small human with a boss surname. More importantly, an Australian graphic designer living and working in Berlin. Passionate about design for print and screen, she works on a diverse range of projects and have been fortunate to work on local and global brands at leading design studios.
