Branding developed for small bar Alleyway hidden away off George Street, Sydney CBD. The owners wanted the design to reflect the welcoming, family run atmosphere. Real family photos, inky stamps, hand cut shapes and wood textures help give the authentic, back-street gathering vibe. It aims to entice those who want a little escapism from the commercial city. The logo was adapted from Avenue Group’s pre-existing umbrella brand. It fits with the grittier, less corporate look and feel. I rolled it out to a range of collateral including menus, table numbers, coasters, social media, aprons, opening invitations, posters and more! A great place for a drink 🙂

The design brief required a focus on Beethoven’s influence over the musical program, as well as advertise David Robertson’s first concert as chief conductor.

STRAVINSKY Symphony in Three Movements
“A vibrant, dancing symphony by a classical master gives us the foundation. But Beethoven’s Seventh is there for another reason as well: John Adams’ Absolute Jest takes its inspiration (and its musical ideas!) from the late Beethoven quartets. It’s like Beethoven that’s been passed through a hall of mirrors, says Adams, and the result is a turbo-charged showpiece for string quartet and orchestra. And Stravinsky enters the picture because he, too, liked to take the music of other composers and make it his own.”
