in the bustling and historic ByWard Market area of Ottawa, Canada, the
Courtyard Restaurant opened in 1980 to rave reviews and has been offering its
guests fine food and exemplary service ever since.
The client required a rebrand of this popular Ottawa
restaurant, including logo design, stationary, signage, clothing and menus. Its new identity needed
to reflect both its nearly 200-year-old heritage
building and its modern cuisine. The new logo retains the Courtyard’s
iconic arches from the previous logo, but redone in a modern style. The
stationary is die-cut, to simulate looking through the arches.
