Branding & Website

About the project

Neko Ngeru is the first Cat Adoption cafe to be open in the Wellington Region. Neko Ngeru was founded to give its customers the opportunity to cuddle and play with their cats and also to have more opportunities for the cats to be adopted.

They wanted to incorporate two cultures (Japanese and Maori) into their branding, always respecting the cultural background and meaning of the symbols used: Blossoms and Korus. 

Project Goals

  • To create a brand that was professional, simple, and playful at the same time
  • To design a user-friendly website with an eCommerce feature
  • To design a brand and website that appeals to their customers

Neko Ngeru Cat Cafe Logo Design

Colour Palette

The colour palette is inspired on Sakura blossoms and Maori design style, symbolic patterns, representing the Japanese and New Zealand cultures. In a spiritual sense, the sakura reminds viewers that life is short and beautiful. Pink is the color of happiness and is sometimes seen as lighthearted. The New Zealand culture is present through the Koru Mangopare design. This traditional Maori symbol, is a sign of strength & courage, tenacity of life, determination, vigour and wealth.
