Lemon Jelly was in need of a complete refurbishment and new brand identity. The challenge of the brief was to retain the cafe’s existing customers while at the same time broaden its appeal, and position Lemon Jelly as THE all day café in Dublin City Centre.

Martin McCormick Design worked closely with the client and Revert Design to create a distinctive brand and contemporary environment that resonates with its target market.

Materials, finishes and features include charred larch timber cladding, Carrara marble tops, encaustic cement tiles, perforated steel shelves, mirrored wall panels, and reeded glass screens which form a casual and relaxed space with a touch of refinement.

Patterns, shapes, colours, and textures manifest themselves in the brand, its applications and the physical environment, producing a memorable and holistic customer experience.
