Festningen is a brasserie that serves a rustic French menu and is located in Oslo’s Akershus Fortress—a medieval castle and former prison. The brasserie’s brand identity, created by design studio Uniform, juxtaposes the traditional detail of etched illustration, a copper foil print finish and fabric texture, alongside a bold sans-serif, simple geometric pattern and light ink across dark papers and boards. This establishes what the agency described as a historical and contemporary guideline for Festningen.
Ingierstrand Bad is a newly refurbished restaurant located on the shore of Norway’s Oslofjord that balances the area’s history as a 1930’s summer retreat with a contemporary dining experience. Oslo based design agency Uniform recently captured this juxtaposition of past and present through a new brand identity solution for the restaurant that mixes vintage photography, cream substrates, geometric forms, two inks and the Art Deco sensibilities of the logotype, resolved with a contemporary consistency, eye for space and simplicity.
Podi is a Singapore-based organic restaurant that ‘celebrates bold, robust and unique flavours’ and the responsible sourcing and cooking of ingredients. Drawing inspiration from the restaurant’s name, a Hindi word to describe a mixture of ground dry spices and herbs, design agency Bravo developed a visual identity that pairs a small, abstract interpretation of heaped spices with a bold logo-type, earthy tones and tinted imagery to reflect Podi’s mission of making ‘good, natural and organic food’.
