Hey, this is YOUR website. Why not have what YOU want on it? It’s a good argument and a tough one to overcome, but the bottom line is that YOUR website is built to attract THEM. Let’s not forget that very important fact. Although it should be about what they want, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t show them what they didn’t know they wanted. Make sense?
Things you should want to show them on your site:
The National, designed by Love and War, recently won a restaurant branding of the year award. It was just featured on Fast Co. design, and it jumped out at me. It’s simplicity is marked by a stark color palate and accentuated by traditional illustrations that nod towards class and taste. The branding for this destination is best described as pleasing and fine.
Lately food trucks have been trending pretty big. It’s easy to see why, the start up capital is minimal, monthly expenses are small, and you have a completely mobile advertisement rolling down the streets. However, I wanted to showcase this “restaurant” it’s not a food truck, it’s a FOOD BIKE!
DriveBy Sandwich is a food bike. I looked for more information on it, but all I know is it was designed by Hello Monday.
I came across this branding gem at Design Work Life who found it on We Heart and now it’s here for you to enjoy. What an amazing job for this cafe in Mexico. Everything from the interior to the branded elements are well done and thought out. Use of amazing typography/fonts in conjunction with vibrant colors and high contrasts make this restaurant/cafe brand unforgettable. Designed by Esrawe in collaboration with Ignacio Cadena.
Well, this is more of a food store, but we’ll still put it here. This spanish/latino focused food mart brand was developed by SuperMarket.
The branding on this project is solid with a consistent type treatment that carries through a autumnal color palate. The logo itself has a semi-retro feel to it reminiscent of an old school sticker call out.
The typeface is well done and the supporting typography really ties the brand together.
