La Playa Books

La Playa Books is a special family-owned bookshop in California. Passing down from father to daughter, it was important that we celebrate both a sense of newness while honoring the shop's legacy. Through a process of conversation, drafts, and revisions, we worked collaboratively with an illustrator local to the store to create the exact image, style, and colors that both father and daughter wanted.

Once the brand was complete, we created a WooCommerce website where they could sell both new books as well as the rare and antiquated titles that the shop is known for. Like most of our web projects, their site also features store events and staff picks, and lots of beautiful photos.

La Playa is one of those great relationships that has staying power. We regularly work with them to create new business cards and advertisements, creating a consistent look that features their brand and logo.
