Whether hungry or in need of accounting services, we’ve got you covered with work from St. Louis, Eindhoven, and Melbourne.
Porano Pasta by Atomicdust
Porano Pasta is a fast casual Italian resturant in St. Louis, MO, with a simple 4-element pasta-building menu. The restaurant’s laid back, accessible, and cheerful attitude is well represented in its identity, designed by local firm Atomicdust, that consists of a chunky wordmark where the letters alternate between inline and no inline or sometimes half an inline and is supported by a range of illustration work. The basis of it is a set of fabric-like pieces that give it a cool mid-century look and then there is a wobbly line-art set of Italian buildings blown up on the wall and another great mono-thickness line-art illustration on the bag by Adam Koon. Too much? Maybe. But somehow it comes together like the pastas it serves and its mix-and-match ordering system. See full project here and here
driexdrie by George&Harrison
driexdrie (Three × Three in English) is an accounting firm specializing in small- and medium-sized businesses with three offices across the Netherlands and their identity is as simple as 2 plus 2… or 3 times 3. Designed by Eindhoven-based George&Harrison, the identity is full of geometric charm, from wordmark to mathematic symbols that turn playful and modern thanks to the almost-salmon red and non-jarring blue. It’s all very simply and elegantly executed in a way that I would totally trust this people with my monies. See full project
Lune Croissanterie by A Friend of Mine
Lune Croissanterie is a bakery in Melbourne with croissants and other baked goods that have customers lining up from 3:00 in the morning. After an expansion into a bigger location, Lune introduced a new identity designed by local firm A Friend of Mine who replaced the old, generic rocket ship logo with a simplified, funner rocket with a croissant for fins. Houston, we don’t have a problem! They also added a simple, bold wordmark and a “hyperdrive” graphic element that is die-cut on the boxes to give the pastries ventilation and also inspired the light fixtures in the new location’s kitchen. To top things off, the black ink on the packaging is sprinkled with a subtle glitter coating for extra awesomeness. See full project
