Featured Project

Sip Tea

MBH infused the Sip Tea brand into the physical space through environmental graphics, custom signage, and material selection to create effective, engaging, and intuitive designs that navigate patrons and introduce the new teahouse to the local community.

As the Design Team begun the design process, they first defined the teahouse’s brand that would inform the EGD concepts, including signage, menu boards, and wayfinding. Inspired by the Japanese ritual of the tea ceremony, the logo pays tribute to the traditional Japanese shoji screen, and a color palette that incorporates green tones of tea leaves contrasted with warm orange tones inspired by Japanese architecture and woodblock prints to create a welcoming atmosphere within the space.

For Sip Tea, custom, hand-drawn EGD elements convey information, create a sense of place, and evoke emotions.


The custom murals depict local landmarks that can connect with the surrounding community and evoke a sense of inclusion. Custom, playful signage, illustrative murals and warm, natural materials infuse the space with the Sip Tea brand, offering customers a one of a kind experience.
