website & branding



Neko Ngeru is the first Cat Adoption cafe to be open in the Wellington Region. The name came from “Neko” (cat in Japanese) and “Ngeru” (Cat in Maori). 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. The owners are originally from Japan and the USA, and they have been helping rescue cats for many years before arriving in New Zealand and open their dream business. They wanted to incorporate both cultures (Japanese and Maori) into their branding, always respecting the cultural background and meaning of the symbols used: Blossoms and Korus. They requested a brand design which was professional, simple, and playful as the same time.
