Warehouse 4 Coffee

Marketing & Creative Director, Photographer

Warehouse 4 is an award winning Dayton-based cafe and bake shop. When I began working with them in 2017, they were looking to expand business and solidify their place in the Dayton coffee community. 

 

They brought me on to design a website and oversee the Warehouse 4 brand through promotional photography, communications, advertising, design and social media management in an effort to increase awareness and business for the shop.

Photography

My goal as a photographer and social media manager was to capture the variety of Warehouse 4's offerings, the shop's atmosphere and the people who made it so special.

Graphic Design

At the beginning of the pandemic, the shop introduced half gallons of cold brew, soon followed by iced tea and pickle juice (yes, really, pickle juice). I designed a minimalistic label that could be easily adapted for a variety of bottled products.

Web Design & Social Media

In addition to designing and maintaining Warehouse 4's website, I also managed their social media on Instagram and Facebook. 

The shop's followers continued to multiply, engagement rate and positive customer reviews increased, and the shop was ranked 3rd on Yelp's "100 Best Coffee Shops in Ohio" list in 2019.
