Sweet Greek is a food store run by Kathy Tsaples, located in Melbourne’s Prahran Market, that sells classic sweets and authentic, freshly baked, ready-to-eat Greek cuisine. The store’s visual identity, created by Studio Brave and Elise Lampe, mixes the loose and personal qualities of a hand rendered logo-type and monogram with illustrations of meats, olives and laurel wreathes. Executed across a tactile, uncoated board with elements associated with craft such as string, stickers, the texture of a hand stamped print finish and a single, economical, cobalt blue—reminiscent of china dining sets and the Greek national flag—these elements convey a culinary honesty representative of authentic products made from simple, local and good quality ingredients.

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.
