New Work: Hand Lettered Chalk Menu for Love Food Central Cafe.

The menu has a total number of 28 items, which includes their drinks, homemade desserts and main dishes. The boards were hand-lettered using chalk and chalk markers. Using white over the black background for natural chalk look and good contrast. Additional colors were used to fit with the brand system.

New Work: The Kimono Cart - Lettering Logo Design and Hand Painted Signage.

New Work: The Kimono Cart - Lettering Logo Design and Hand Painted Signage.

The Kimono Cart needed a new logo to represent their business. Alicia Gagel, founder of The Kimono Cart and I collaborated to bring her idea to life. My goal with the design was to make brand look special and natural with a focus on uniqueness and hand drawn, vintage and bohemian characteristics. The Kimono Cart is committed to create naturally made products, therefore a hand crafted identity and style was appropriate. 

The logo design was hand-drawn, digitized and later painted by hand using One Shot lettering enamel on two wood panels that measure 35" by 25". The panels are going to be used to build the cart that Alicia will be taking to indie and makers markets to showcase and sell her hand made Kimonos.

Check out the pictures of the logo design and sign painting process!
