Brand and logo design for a small Japanese restaurant
Kuidaore (食い倒れ) is a Japanese word meaning to ruin oneself [go bankrupt] by extravagant spending on food. Therefore the idea of a mountain of food to eat came to my mind, for the direction I decided to go modern with a hint of a traditional touch, that was the main driving concept behind the branding of Kuidaore all over.
