Year 2 Graphics - restaurant branding

Year 2 Graphics were briefed to design the branding for a restaurant, café or street food stall. The students were all given different countries to research and find a unique selling point or type of food specific to the country.

As well as an identity and appropriate application of the branding, they also visualized the layout and navigation of a website.

The brief was to design an article for ‘Design Week’ iPad magazine replacing the former printed magazine.

The students had to design the layout of type and image for the front cover, introduction page and a five-page article on their designated artist.

The aim of the project was to visually communicate the UX, navigation, interactivity and moving image regions on the pages.
