Beth Clement is a woman who decided to specialize in hot deconstructions of food classics, like her innovative "Pho-renchy", a pho French dip sandwich! Enter the logo and truck wrap design for this laboratory of global fusion food.
GOOD OL' DAYS
Owner Beth Clement's concept was to bring back the warmth of the past, comfort food like her grandma used to make.
Beth is also of German descent, so we brought in the old babushka as an icon of simplicity and roots.
KIMCHI MAC'N CHEESE
Beth thought things were maybe getting too gourmet-sy and refined-sy. Being herself an adept of good old food, she decided to "jump the window" and mix the oldies with all the new stuff she loved.
The small spirals in the identity are Beth's power symbol that I incorporated for luck.
WE'RE MORE ALIKE
than we thought
Since this a global fusion food project I chose to reflect that typographically: the logo has three distinct typefaces.
It represents the "made from scratch" manner in which Beth cooks.
THE JOY OF MIXES
The same three typefaces show up everywhere in the truck wrap, symbolizing her intention — and talent — to mix the apparently unmixable.
Old humorous food-related adages materialized on all sides of the truck in typographical form — including the TOP, of course, and people looooooved it! — sends out the vibe:
accessible and experimental.
