Case Study


Tortillas with Centro

Centro. Popol Vuh. Viv!r. We've been fortunate enough to feast at these restaurants, build their websites, and organize events in their beautiful space.

Centro and Popol Vuh, then later Centro and ViV!r share space in a Northeast Minneapolis location. We were tasked with creating sister sites that sang with the differences between the street tacos of Centro and the market at Viv!r.

We've organized a customer appreciation block party replete with slushies, bands, and a dunk tank in their parking lot. We've organized a literary event: matched courses with performances FROM PEOPLE and Michael Bazzet reading from his translation of the Mayan creation story, Popol Vuh.

Two Sides of One Coin


Centro is street food. Margaritas and tacos, fire and spice. Popol Vuh was upscale Mexican - intricate flavors and rare tequila. Smoke and dark paneled wood. When Popol Vuh closed during the pandemic. Viv!r took it's place with artisanal Mexican wares, full market, and a bright welcoming dining experience.

Dunk Tanks, Cover Bands, & Origin Stories


We brought together Centro and BRIX for a customer appreciation event. Coordinated with photographers, local talent, designed the invitation, menu, web page, etc. A delicious and fantastical event.

When we found out author Michael Bazzet was publishing his translation of Popul Vuh, we had an immediate thought: Popol Vuh at Popol Vuh!

The team at Popol Vuh was just as excited as we were. Hafi set up the online shop for tickets, created marketing collateral, coordinated with the author and perfomers, and ensured the entire process went smoothly from snout to tail.

The BRIX Report
& Beyond


Every year, we put together an annual report for BRIX. We commission features, write some ourselves, track the project from snout to tail and then some.

The beyond? Educational booklets, event flyers, print collateral, and more.

And the Rest


Events & Etc.


Video Premieres. Online Auctions. Customer Appreciation Events. Dunk Tanks and More.

Sometimes, we take our design skills out IRL and help organize epic parties, fundraisers, concerts. BRIX loves to sprint outside of the box, and we love to join (and nudge) them outside the lines. We design fliers, contact entertainment and photographers, write copy, secure locations, and offer general support to the team at BRIX for each individual event.
