The name – Two Flat Whites?
One bright sunny day a couple of mates were sitting outside in the backyard sipping on a cold glass of lemonade. We wanted to help out a number of our friends who were very talented in their own right, one was a musician, another an artist & there were many more; who had one thing in common. They all explained how difficult it was to showcase their work & get there foot in the door!
On this afternoon, the idea of a website to support young Australian talent was created. Networks with businesses, government, clubs, restaurants, magazines, art galleries, online publications & festivals would need to be established. A clean white napkin was brought to the table and a number of names were written down. Some were good, some not so good.
The name would need to encompass all of the categories that the site was supporting. A coffee shop is a place where people often meet & talk about a range of different topics. The coffee shop & variations just didn’t seem to be very original, so as name after name was written down, as the sun was setting, the night air seeping through the trees and the lemonade reaching its climax, the name Two Flat Whites was written on the napkin & so Two Flat Whites was born!
