To create a logo which reflected the Roots ethic of home made and home grown.
Starting up a bistro from scratch is a tall order. Claire Yaxley and Richard Lang literally started from a shell of a building which all needed fitting out with kitchen areas, upstairs and downstairs, a bar and dining rooms.
They had a very clear unique selling point for Roots: they would try as hard as they could to source everything that they sold or served from this region. Hence the name Roots. So despite the chaos and the time delays on the actual building work, they had the philosophy worked out and gave us the brief to turn that into a logo.
Less a logo and more an illustration, the visual identity combines hand drawn food and farming icons with the elegant typeface Sculptura.
