Opinion by Richard Baird.
Hill of Grace Restaurant was created by renowned Australian wine maker Henschke and is located at the historic Adelaide Oval. With the intention of elevating experience, Henschke worked with design studio Band to develop a new brand identity that would match the quality of its food and wine, and establish a stronger connection with the roots of the brand, the Henschke vineyard. This is explored through photography, features custom typeface and redrawn logotype, and included the design of menus, stationery, invitations and business cards with a strong material quality in the use of laid paper, textured surfaces and blind emboss and black block foil detail.
