The Star Of Kings designed by Bunch

Logo created by Bunch for London pub and live music venue The Star of Kings

The Star Of Kings is a pub and live music venue located near Kings Cross, London and the sister pub of The Star of Bethnal Green. As part of their recent renovation they approached creative design agency Bunch to develop their new identity, stationary and promotional materials.

I love the originality of this identity and although the name leads to an obvious concept the star logo-mark has been cleverly crafted to fit in nicely with the existing four suits. The king illustrations are really well executed referencing both the detail and classic style of playing cards while creating a modern and single colour interpretation. The stationary retains this sensibility through the application of the illustrations and the rounded corners while the oversized A6 nature of the compliment slip adds a fun and quirky appeal. Unfortunately only the new logo-mark makes it onto their website which could have done with a refresh.

Overall this is an interesting blend of the classic card theme and a logo-mark that has a modern editorial visual style that reminds of magazines such as Vice, an aesthetic that should appeal to a modern and fashionable crowd.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
