Northstar Cafe

Trailmix Intranet

Northstar strives to bring together caring and intelligent people who love food and enjoy serving others. Their carefully prepared yet casual cuisine and unique urban ambience have earned a stream of loyal fans.

Northstar asked us to define, design and develop a custom-branded digital platform which will allow associates of Northstar Cafe and Third & Hollywood to unite as a community. This community's name is "Trailmix."


We designed a custom identity and visual language for the brand to sit on top of an existing technology named BuddyPress, a fully featured social network platform built to bring people together. The site now serves as both an internal communication tool for their company and a focused social network for Northstar Cafe and Third & Hollywood.
