New Logo and Branding: The BeaufortPosted: January 25, 2013 | |
Design agency The Company You Keep have recently finished working with bartender Dave Kerr on the naming, branding, collateral design and signage for The Beaufort, a themed dive bar located on Melbourne’s Rathdowne St. The agency’s visual identity solution, a combination of a quirky, well rendered, bespoke logo-type – built from unusual but original uppercase characters inspired by iron dock cleats and American sporting insignia of the 50′s and 60′s – set along a classic curved baseline and executed with a more recent single consistent line weight and rounded terminals. Alongside a neat anchor monogram, type heavy collateral layouts and retro imagery – with an on-trend watery blue tint and a red overprint treatment across a simple white substrate – delivers a distinctive and nautical personality with a sporting undertone and a contemporary simplicity.
