I'm so excited to finally be sharing this logo + brand design process! Wasted Kitchen + Pub came to me last year in the very beginning stages of planning their restaurant.

Venue 221 is a high-end event venue with a lounge-type, exclusive feel. Cindy, the owner, was referred to me by another client for a full brand package, and I could immediately tell how passionate she was about the creation of her identity for Venue 221. She had a very specific vision in mind for the logo - to mimic the shape and feeling of a mid-century modern light fixture called a sputnik.
