Restaurant Advertising and Logo Design

For over 20 years we’ve been helping our Hawaii restaurant clients gain market-share and succeed in this highly competitive and crowded marketplace. Our winning recipe begins with a strongly differentiated brand position which in turn drives the logo and identity design, creative print advertising campaigns, website design, radio commercials, signage, menus, brochures, and finally the restaurant’s interior and exterior design. The result is brand-synergy which drives trial by new customers and sets our clients up for long-term success.

Kalaheo Cafe & Coffee Co. Logo

Kalaheo Cafe & Coffee Co. Logo

This neighborhood cafe is a fun and eclectic place to have a great cup of coffee, fresh baked good, garden fresh salads, and any number of other amazing breakfast or lunch dishes. It’s a “rise and shine” kind of place, thus the sun in the logomark. You should see the roadside sign – it turned out quite beautifully.

This logomark was actually illustrated the old fashioned way, then digitized and enhanced. Our illustrator used this specific style because it best fit the client’s brand. One unexpected result was that the Executive Chef liked it so much, he had it embroidered on his chef’s coat.

This happens to be one of the smallest and least interactive web sites that we have created, but fun and sassy just the same. The food is fabulous, and the setting, well, you’ll just have to experience for yourself. It’s like taking a step back in time to Hawaii’s plantation era.

Kalaheo Steakhouse Interior and Exterior Design

Reinventing a Kalaheo landmark had its challenges. People don’t like change. They want things like they were. But the dark, rundown space needed some new life. Thankfully the new owners embraced the concepts we presented, and today Kalaheo Steak & Ribs is a hub of local life that embraces the past yet has confidently strode into the present.

The client had been using the fish in the logomark for over 20 years and asked that we please incorporate it into the new logomark, so we accommodated his request. Appropriately designed also as a drink coaster, Brennecke’s serves a mean mai tai.

Fresh seafood. That should be what you think of when you see this logomark. They specialize in preparing seven to eight different fresh seafood dishes every night with special sauces prepared fresh every day. Yummy good!

Wahooo’s Interior Design

By starting with a strong brand position and fresh new name, we were able to bring the new brand to life in the restaurant. Most of the renovations were exterior in an effort to take a stand for reevaluation by consumers. New paint, signage, and landscaping gave them wonderful curb appeal, while the ceiling treatments and upper dining area renovations (shown here) made the ambience warm and inviting. The food was always incredible, it just needed a more beautiful stage to be set upon.
