Yelp / Turn the Tables

3D Motion
After Effects
Yelp for Restaurants launched "Turn the tables" an initiative to help the restaurant community persevere during the pandemic. With three colorful and beautiful stories of how three entrepreneurs with their restaurants manage to turn their traditional restaurants around and manage to create new experiences with a different narrative with the help of Yelp Guest Manager.

In this project for Yelp led by Seed animation and the Yelp creative team. My role for these project was work in 3D Design for the restaurants, kitchen and open spaces, trying to maintain the mood of each of the 3 restaurants, rescuing unique elements of each space, such as decorative elements, murals, dishes, furniture, which make each restaurant unique and in this way make each and in this sense to achieve that each restaurant reflects its spirit of service, culinary and tradition.

JiST Cafe by Glen Ishi
JiST Cafe is a family business, just like mine. It’s an intimate and welcoming place that serves traditional Japanese dishes in an inviting atmosphere, but the modern twist and seasonal touches make it feel special.
21 Spoons by Ann Butler
Welcome to the world of Ann Butler’s 21 Spoons. Her modern American dining experience is entirely inspired by her community. The dishes are affordable, shareable, and change weekly based on the ingredients she finds right in her own backyard.
Mestizo Restaurant by Ketsuda Chaison
Ketsuda got creative and opened her kitchen to struggling local chefs, allowing them to rent space to launch pop-up concepts. This solution not only helped put new flavors into the community, but Ketsuda covered her costs and kept her employees paid.
