An eye-catching logo and visual language for Bresson, a fine-dining French restaurant in Monkstown, Co. Dublin.

The Background
The client required a distinctive brand identity and website to reflect their offering of high-quality French food served in a contemporary setting, which would translate across printed and online communications.

The Idea

The name Bresson comes from one of the restaurant owners’ many French inspirations, photographer Henri Cartier Bresson. Famous for interrupting formality with spontaneity, this is something Conor and Temple are bringing to French cuisine. With Bresson as a starting point, we researched French art, design and typography from the 1930s to the 1950s.

The Execution
The design outcome was a crafted logotype inspired by this French approach but with a contemporary style and elegance, reflective of the experience that visitors to the restaurants can enjoy. Using a beautiful colour palette pulls all the new brand assets together.

We developed a graphic visual language inspired by seaweed gathered near the restaurant at Seapoint, Monkstown – a nod to Bresson’s proximity to the sea and the locally sourced produce that the restaurant serves.
