Happy Halloween Everybody!

It may be the end of October, the scariest time of the year, but designing a kiosk is nothing to be frightened about. In fact, the ones below prove that kiosks are design projects that allow you to have a lot of fun on a small scale.

From oversized Nutella jars and New York subway references to counters made of newspapers and kiosks that look like enormous pieces of chocolate (and what's wrong with that?), you have it all. Here are a few ideas to inspire you, followed by a little Halloween treat.

Mindful Design Consulting brand had a complete makeover last year.  The new logo and colors represent the bright and cheerful work we usually do for our clients. See our new website HERE.

Truly yours, EKATERINA KOHLWES principal / designer
