THE CATERING STUDIO
BRANDING & WEBSITE
With a focus on fresh, seasonal and simple cuisine, Inject set out to craft a re-brand and an all new web presence for the Catering Studio.
Food is The Catering Studio's business, Simon and his team understand that successful catering is about organisation, high quality service, and great food. At Inject, we believed the best way to showcase this was placing emphasis on the food without design getting in the way.
An in-house photoshoot was carefully constructed with custom built recycled timber backgrounds, eclectic props and a array of meals and other tasty treats.
A minimalistic brand was then developed around the imagery, ensuring beautiful food always took the spotlight. The new website has been custom built to enable online ordering with simplicity and ease, all built on top of a CMS allowing the client to edit products and imagery at anytime - a necessity given the seasonal nature of the dishes.
The Catering Studio ensures top quality food and service, whatever your event may be.
BRANDING & WEBSITE
Lot 99 approached us with a concept never seen before in New Zealand, An online wine community dedicated to uniting our countries wineries and wine lovers. Inject were required to create a logo which could stand on it’s own yet be non-intrusive as to not overpower the wine brands on Lot 99.
The resulting brand has been kept simple with typography based on spray painted numbers at the end of a row of vines and housed in a square to give the mark a timeless and modern quality.
On the sales side of the Lot 99 website we see wineries with their own customisable page and the ability to upload blogs, keep twitter feeds, add photographs and more importantly, upload their entire range of wines for sale matched with tasting notes, awards and reviews.
The customer side of the site gives users the ability to purchase wines from the online cellar door with discounts rewarded when a user reviews wines or shares wines with friends. Users can search by winery, varietal, geographic location, vintage and price point. Each wine is photographed with it’s accompanying flavour notes, ensuring simple visual recognition and helping the user to quickly recognise what to expect from their purchase.
Zombies From Hell
Using ‘Augmented Reality’ technology Hell has created the World’s First 3D Zombie Shooter Game on a Pizza Box!

Wellington Chocolate Factory
The brand new Wellington Chocolate Factory specialise in beautiful handcrafted chocolate. To marry with this handmade ethos a brand was developed featuring unique illustrations from an array of artists to represent each chocolate flavour and variety.
Accompanying that is a simplistic minimal wordmark which is elegant and timeless enough to stand on it's own yet humble enough to give space to the beauty of these illustrations. With the constant of the black and white, yet the limitless opportunity for new illustrations, Wellington Chocolate Factory has the ability to visually grow alongside their ever expanding flavour range. Pop in and try some today.

A once derelict, 1910s, toilet block in the heart of Wellington’s party central, Courtenay Place, has been turned into a micro roastery and coffee bar.
Micro roasting is a daily task, done by hand, boutique style. The 1920s social undertone of the ‘working man’ and the consequent appreciation for craftsmanship, the trading of goods as a luxury in the days of long sea journeys and the hard-working innocence of the times, married well with the boutique nature of the business. The story of those hard working souls is what we encapsulated into the brand.
The typefaces used in the logo were re-drawn by hand to reflect a human presence and aged authenticity.The colour palette complements the brick tones of the original structure, as well as encourages desire for the taste of a delicious brew.The wood-cut styled logo mark tells a story about the 'original gentlemen' smoking a cigarette after a long, hard days work.The use of the contemporary materials, metallic inks and dimensional lettering, alongside the historical ambience of stamped coffee bags and the brand’s character, creates a harmonious balance of aesthetics from the old to the new, complementing the Arcitecture of the structure.
Fat Freddys Drop
BRANDING & ALBUM
Blackbirds, like crows, can be mythical symbols of ominous forces. The image on the cover has power and strength highlighted by the contrast of the loose, inky hand-drawn brushstrokes against a stark, white background. The effect has movement and energy and creates a sophisticated, timeless appeal.
The illustration is hyper-real in its detail. This gives depth, intrigue and draws the viewer in for a closer look.
The colouration pays homage to our well-loved native New Zealand Tui.

"Fat Freddy's Drop are so proud of their artwork - we stick-out like a sore thumb, it's so good!!" Nicole Duckworth - Manager - Fat Freddy's Drop

Our client's Mon (family crest) was incorporated into the Yoshi brand and became a strong graphic element that was repeated seamlessly throughout the branding.
The Yoshi brand encapsulates elements of culture, cuisine, modernity as well as expressing a personal connection with the client's family heritage.
The linear pattern of the design is our graphic interpretation of origami and rice paper, which we deployed subtly to create a multi-dimensional feel. The colours are strong clean and precise, representing that of Japanese flag.

Yoshi just wouldn't have been the same without them!" Helen Kono, Director - Yoshi
Matterhorn & Foxglove Posters
Matterhorn is a timeless venue and longstanding focal point of Wellington’s nightlife, while Foxglove is adorned with a touch of 1940's vintage glamour and coupled with sweeping harbour views from every vantage point.

Tekron International are leading worldwide manufacturers and distributors of Time Sync and GPS clocks. With a specialist product range they enlisted our help to create a new website, focusing on growing their ever expanding international market.
A product range photo shoot was undertaken by Inject before the design of separate desktop and mobile websites. Custom quote forms were built for each unique product and a members log in area exists ensuring customers can download manuals and documentation. The result is a multi-platform site with beautiful and informative imagery of Tekrons entire product range, and a tool with which they can advance further in to new markets.
Work Produced: Photo Shot, Website Design & Build for Desktop and mobile browsers.

Steer & Beer
BRANDING & SIGNAGE
Overlooking Courtney place you'll find Wellington's new contemporary western bar and grill.
In branding Steer & Beer we focused on the menus core ingredients, extracting specific meat cuts to feature throughout signage and menus.
Working alongside interior designer Allistar Cox, a burgundy red logo and age treated steel signage interplays with a dark wood and steel lined interior.
The secondary 'SB' logo employs the form of a branding iron, and can be seen on the external wall glowing a scorching red.
Next time you're near by, haul up a seat at the bar, let the cow hyde stroke your knees and be mesmerised as the iconic bull stares down at you from above.
