A MAN WALKS INTO A BAR... This is how jokes typically begin. For me, it marked the start of my journey as a brand designer. One evening in Munich, we ventured into a recently opened restaurant and bar named Julep's for dinner. Eventually, the owner approached our table to inquire about our impressions of his new establishment, which had just opened its doors a few days prior. With a few margaritas in my system, I candidly expressed my appreciation for the restaurant itself but couldn't help but critique the logo and menus, which struck me as amateurish. He chuckled and issued a challenge: "Can you do better?"
I accepted the challenge and delivered. The Julep's logo I crafted soon achieved iconic status in Munich - and beyond. As the restaurant expanded into a franchise, stretching its presence across Europe, from Berlin to Milan, it became a recognized brand throughout the continent. This unassuming logo stands as one of my most remarkable success stories, having played a pivotal role in transforming a simple restaurant into a multi-million-dollar enterprise.

Fleischmann's Steakhouse, Esslingen/Germany. A restaurant project developed hand in hand with the architectural team. We began with mood boards and worked simultaneously from there. The outcome is a stunning and highly elegant experience, from website visuals to the actual ambiance of the restaurant. Plus, they serve exceptional steaks!

Omnom Organics Organic Food Stores, Los Angeles  We were approached by an investment group to assist in launching a new type of takeout restaurant specializing in fresh, organic ingredients. We met in Hollywood to discuss their ideas: organic ingredients, homemade soups, farm-to-table produce, and guaranteed delivery within 30 minutes to the nearby offices in downtown LA. They requested a straightforward and welcoming visual identity that would consistently represent their concept across their packaging and marketing materials.
The outcome was indeed a warm and inviting business identity, characterized by minimal use of plastic, ample paper wrappers, stickers, and bags. Eventually, their popularity soared to the extent that they opened a second location.
