DONNA'S

Designers: Cody Sennyuen               

Creative Director:  Barry Quinn

Client: DONNA'S (Concept Work)                  

Agency: DDB Chicago 

DONNA's approached us about a potential branding opportunity for their restaurant in Toronto. The inspiration that was highlighted in the brief detailed that the chefs were a big fan of Donna Summers and they also liked the idea of the restaurant feeling like your grandma’s kitchen. To combine these two ideas, I used typography referencing some of Donna Summers greatest hits (that could also describe food) as well as photography of grandmas. I didn't want this to feel like your average grandma, I wanted them to have a bit of attitude to give the restaurant some edge. Although the partnership fell through, the clients really gravitated towards this concept and felt that it communicated their ideas.
