Cafe Barista by Paola-Tosca Cafe Barista by Paola-Tosca
This is an Advertisement I made at work for Cafe Barista.
It's kind of a poster they'd paste on the coffee machine. However this design wasn't used, so I thought it'd be okay to put it online.

I'm very fond of this ad, I kept in mind that it should appeal to tourists from abroad, so I used this island's best features. The beautiful sea! :D And the fish form a coffee cup, that was inspired by those silver fishes from Nemo. XD

Hope you like! :glomp::hug::heart:

Love,
Melly

I agree with all the other commmenters... It's a wonder why this did not get chosen. This looks like an ad that you might see in a travel magazine! :nod::nod: I love the contrast of colors, as well as heart on the coffee foam especally!

Why wasn't this used? It appeals to me, and I don't even drink caffine! (So no coffee, and yet this still makes me want to go there.)

I love all of the colors, and the small details. Like the heart in the coffee, I love that!

:w00t: I said that the fish reminded me of Finding Nemo, and then I read that you got it from there! Really nice touch!

its really well done!! totally gorgeous, the blue of the water gives the cafe barista a complete impression of freshness, and the fishes forming the cup somehow says that coffee is what defines the Caribbean, it most definitely cafe barista the proper caribean look and feel.

i think cafe barista would have liked darker colors, but then again it needed to have something that says caribean in it, and you pulled it off gorgeously.
great job!! keep it up

Bit of a departure from your usual but that's always good to try new thangs.Love it and agree how the hell did it not get chosen?! Nice colours and not eye raping colour-wise,just lovely. Also like those curving lines,remind me of steam coming off teh coffee.

Yeah...I like coffee...<3

This would be a fabulous ad! I love the colors, -- they give it an exotic feel. And I love the fishies in the shape of a steaming hot cup of coffee. ^_^ This is so imaginative and appealing. Wonderful work!

Very well done missy. I've been to Cafe Barista, and I think I understand why exactly this wasn't there first pic, but I love it. It does make me long for home, and it does make me just want to sip some cafe kurasolenjo :)

I've never been there though, but I get the idea that they're more traditional, or prefer darker colors. Well then, at least I got to make you want to drink coffee ;) :glomp:
