Retro Kombi Co

If you’re looking for a unique vehicle to hire, combining both a laid-back café culture and premium personalised service, then say hello to Retro Kombi Co.

The two stars of the Retro Kombi Co. family are Errol and Olive.

Servicing ‘day-to-day’ cafe culture, ‘Olive’ is the ‘roaming barista’ – a café/beverage service that travels around the Newcastle and Hunter Region. Olive, named after her beautiful green colouring, is equipped with an espresso machine and refrigeration for coffee and basic food service. Olive will also be set up to work at markets and festivals and available for hire as a pop-up bar for weddings and special occasions.

Errol is the perfect gentleman, he has the most royal of blue hue & pearl white trims boasting timeless sophistication that will add elegance and charm.  Ready to help make your wedding a memorable day, Errol will whisk your wedding party away and dazzle onlookers.

As part of our work with Retro Kombi Co. we developed the branding concept and logo development as well as introducing sub brands for the two vehicles Errol and Olive.

Neon Zoo worked with Retro Kombi Co, first to create a logo and brand design that they could use on their signage and promotional material. Their primary logo is black and white and then there are two other colour versions that (you guessed it) each matched to Olive or Errol. They branding also included a brand pattern that is reminder of the Kombi’s origins.  Once their brand was underway we then worked with Retro Kombi Co. to design a website. Being a mobile business having a website where people can go to to view packages and see images of their vehicles was really important.

Retro Kombi Co. will travel throughout Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter Region. If you’re interested in Retro Kombi Co. for event hire, or if you’re like us and think the idea of a kombi van bringing coffee to your pad is totally coolsville, then check out Retro Kombi Co.’s website  or follow their Instagram , Facebook or website to see where you can next catch Olive the roaming Barista.

Here’s that they had to say about working with Neon Zoo.
“Abby and her team have been great!  Their enthusiasm and fun approach to work is refreshing. Thanks Abby for all your help and advice, we are loving the results.”
