La Distributrice Coffee Shop in Montreal

Location location location.
Do you know La Distributrice? It is probably the smallest coffee joint in the universe (in North America in fact), renting the empty space under a Mont-Royal staircase. But hey, this is how you make it in America, right? Here’s a few pictures of busy Gary, stopping by for a local cup of joe. Also, a big shout out to our friends Rachel Lecompte and Gabriel Lefebvre at Studio Point who made a killer branding for the business.

Gary’s Day Off

For those unfamiliar with our mascot Gary, here’s the background story.
Follow all Gary’s adventures on the Marmalades Instagram feed.

Gary used to be an unemployed mascot who lost his way in alcohol after his ex dumped him for a Nickelback roadie. Math and I met him at his very low and offered Gary to represent Marmalades on the promise he would drop the bottle and 50 pounds. He now sleeps at the office.

So now that the new website is live, we felt that Gary needed a little day off.
More pictures will come! Here you can see Math René (CTO) and Matthew O’Connor uploading the gold.

Behind the Marmalades trailer

We chose to showcase the Marmalades features with one of the greatest story ever told, The Great Gatsby by Scott F. Fitzgerald. The Jazz age backdrop of the 1920’s and the vivid references to Long Island’s golden coast and New York City just seemed a perfect fit.

But there’s somehow something more profound in the Gatsby’s story that we seem obssesed with. The lost generation of the 1920’s is in many ways connected with what we are dealing with today. A beautiful youth lost in the partys, the people and the gossips. A neverending game of who is who. And a strong desire to grasp something more profound. Like a lost summer love.
