To focus the brand, we embraced its most iconic elements and reimagined them in a fresh but familiar identity. The fish got friendlier; type took cues from original signage; color was restored and revitalized; and a classic diner-inspired diamond pattern was added to grab attention. Each element works alone or in combination.

opinion/notes

Perhaps there is some authenticity in the old logo that you can't recreate in any way: it looks like the logo on a crummy shack that happens to make the best food of its kind for miles. If you look at the location signs it's maybe not the most inviting logo for modern-day families. The new logo takes a cue from the signage of one of the locations to create a cleaner, bolder wordmark and introduces a super friendly cod that I happen to find very endearing, popping a chip with its tiny fins. Maybe it's now too cute or too much like a Minor League Baseball team but I think it establishes a friendlier, cleaner, more contemporary aesthetic for the restaurant without going full-on mainstream.
