The Philosophy of Chef Nate and Crosswinds Grille is quite simple:  Start with fresh and local products…. and the end result will be far more superior.

Chef Nate Fagnilli is known for his involvement in the local food movement, which he strives to demonstrate in the kitchen of his upscale lakefront restaurant, Crosswinds Grille at The Lakehouse Inn.

Concept Pop worked closely for several months on the Crosswinds Grille multimedia project which started with farm photography & food photography when Nate brought Donny to his local farms for a photo shoot.

Not the most typical of photo shoots as Donny remembers (they came home with a 1/2 of a pig in the back of the truck) but the rest is history.   That day’s photo shoot as well as a few follow up days at the restaurant completed what is soon to be an art installation of Nate’s favorite shots in the restaurant.  You can also see the photography featured on the new website, completed in spring of 2015.

Concept Pop continues to work with the rest of the marketing staff at Crosswinds on graphic design pieces for events and promotions, tshirt design, and blogging projects.
