Combining the culinary and marketing skills of its founders, FoodTrip is a start-up with ambitious plans to become a leading provider of culinary tourism.
FoodTrip asked us to create its first brand identity, ahead of its launch.
What we delivered
We created a bold, multi-layered brand identity to stand out amongst the clutter prevalent in the food tourism sector.
The core logo comprises the block-printed cross section of a garlic bulb – an ingredient typically used in the culinary traditions of the region in which Food Trip will operate – overlayed with a watercolour paint effect.
A warm orange used as the core brand colour provides a nod to the warm Mediterranean sun of the region. Meanwhile, a location pin replaces the full stop of the descriptor, to emphasise the travel element of FoodTrip’s offer.
We applied a heavy type weight to the font, and used white, to provide contrast against the abstract background, giving FoodTrip strong stand out.
To complement the logo and descriptor, we also created a set of illustrations that could be applied across FodTrip’s marketing materials, to bring the proposition to life.
What the client said
“There could not have been a better match for us. It’s as if Sherlock Studio could read our minds and made FoodTrip’s logo and branding development something real and beautiful!” Anna Paula Duarte Guimarães – Director of Marketing, FoodTrip.
