Seafarers is a recently rejuvenated seven floor habour front building located in Auckland’s Britomart precinct that will house, over two floors, Michelin starred chef Josh Emett’s flagship restaurant, due to open in stages throughout 2014, as well as brasserie and bar Ostro.
The brand identity for the building, restaurant and brasserie, developed by Inhouse, draws on the rich history of the space—once known as Auckland’s Sailors Home—and its contemporary renovation through a variety of traditional and more recent typographical and nautical detail. This extends across menu design and signage, coasters, newspaper and membership brochure.
Persillade is a Melbourne cafe opposite Jolimont Station with a large double shop front and an interior of reclaimed wood and bottles, white tiles, steel, glass and classic furniture. Design studio Clear were commissioned by owners Aidan and Tanya Raftery to develop a graphic identity for the cafe that would bring some “much needed soul, texture and community to the very private neighbourhood of East Melbourne”. This went on to include a custom logotype, print assets such as menus and wine labels that feature illustration by Oslo Davies, as well as signage and interior design.
