Private Brand Meat & Bread

Regular readers may know that my list of passions extends beyond Private Brands to food and restaurants; consequently I love it when the two collide. The new Vancouver, British Columbia restaurant Meat & Bread features a small protein centered menu that includes a trendy collection of sandwiches ranging from porchetta to meatballs, Yum.

Vancouver-based creative studio Glasfurd & Walker recently completed the identity and all brand design for the restaurant. Based on the idea of “man made” the agency created a strong typography based, clean identity and Private Brand design for the restaurant. The design extends to stationery, signage, packaging and web. To compliment the hand crafted aesthetic of the restaurant, the main signage was hand painted onto glass, and all take out bags are hand stamped with the logo.
