Coffee lovers rejoice! Hello Coffee Shop has officially opened at Summer Bay Orlando by Exploria Resorts, and we caught up with Graphic Designer Danielle LeVance to learn more about the inspiration behind the coffee shop’s cozy look.



How long have you been a Graphic Designer?

This is actually kind of funny because I was designing before I even knew what Graphic Design was or that I could make a career out of it. In school, I always went above and beyond when it came to essay covers and presentations, and I used to design MySpace layouts purely for fun. Professionally, I’ve been a Graphic Designer for about 5-6 years now.



What is it like seeing your designs come to life?

This is one of the best parts of my job. Especially, seeing the long-term projects finally come to fruition. I regularly get the opportunity to experience a real sense of accomplishment in my work. It’s very satisfying to see my projects through from concept to completion. Knowing that my designs are out in the world being seen and used by people is an incredible feeling.



Which design element are you most proud of?

I would have to go with the logo because everything else just blossomed from there. The Hello Coffee Shop was designed to be warm and welcoming, offering our owners and guests an inviting space to start their day and connect with others.



Hello Coffee Shop features the word “coffee” written in 19 different languages. How did you choose which languages to represent, and which is your favorite?

I chose to feature a combination of some of the world’s most spoken languages and also those that I found aesthetically pleasing to further the idea that everyone in the world has a favorite coffee shop. No matter the language, we all speak coffee. The ones I connect with the most would have to be cà phê and caffè because I’m part Vietnamese and Italian.



Hello Coffee Shop proudly serves Starbucks® brand coffee products and is open for daily operation from 7am to 10pm at Summer Bay Orlando by Exploria Resorts. Read more about the official grand opening of Hello Coffee Shop here.
