Meat - as the definition of what we do for our living, what we are most passionate about and what we serve to our customers.
Vandals - /ˈvand(ə)l/ a person who deliberately damages or destroys a property of others - pulled meat is slowly cooked for hours and then quickly shredded into pieces - cooks as the vandals destroying meat's original form to create a new taste experience.
Our main goal was to create a bespoke visual identity that would correspond with the goal and the customer's taste experience. The visual language is raw, creative and crazy. Just as the vandals themselves. No two buns are the same, even tough the ingredients are. We wanted to encompass this idea by combining two fonts and crafting a special mark with hand-written message. The letter "M" from the mark will be used for the buns.
A contrasting color palette consisting of red, black and grey was chosen to underline the whole experience. These creative direction will be further developed in the interiors of bistro combined with illustrations and brand patterns.
