Branding, illustration and print design balanced between traditional lunch-counter style diners and the unique tastes of the Lancaster restaurant scene.
Lancaster City likely has a restaurant that can satisfy any appetite, diet or craving.
When Max’s Eatery opened its doors in that scene, they wanted to instill a feeling of exceptional food and attentive service in its customers from the get-go. Rather than follow the trend of hosting a high-end atmosphere, they wanted a dining experience that blended styles of an old-school diner with a relaxed, easy-going restaurant. Max’s needed this experience to be supported by a brand identity that was easy to digest and applied effortlessly to necessary restaurant materials, such as menus and signage.
Drawing inspiration from the era of “lunch car” diners, we designed a timeless logotype with customized details to maintain a contemporary impression and relevancy to the Max’s Eatery brand. This was paired with a typographic system and diverse color palette relatable to the brand, cohesive icons to complement the logo and full set of menus for a unified experience from appetizers and side dishes, to cocktails and boozy milkshakes.
