A lot of thought and effort went into the design details of our flagship store. Check out our design logs below for a glimpse of our creative adventures!
We are very fortunate that one of our very first employees, Yvonne, also happens to be an amazing artist. She is the creative mind behind all of Asha's chalkboard, menu, retail sign, store sign and packaging illustrations--pretty much everything that is hand-drawn at Asha. Check out more of Yvonne's work at Coroflot!
We are slowly documenting the stories behind all of our DIY projects. Check back often for updates!

Other Design Details
Although we didn't personally create any of the following designs (much credit for those go to Martin and his crew from Travis and our other partners), we put plenty of thought and effort into them.
