Signage and Environmental Design
San Fermo is an Italian restaurant in Seattle situated in a newly renovated historic house.
The interior design features a mix of both vintage and clean modern aesthetics, and the owner reached out to me with the idea of using hand lettering for their signage. I started with the exterior sandwich board using imagery referencing the aged cutting boards that the owner and his wife had collected over the years. Finding inspiration for the environmental design in the space itself, I took visual cues from the vintage European tableware that the restaurant uses. For any detailed design elements, I created stylized typography that reflects the modern/vintage feel of the restaurant.
