I'm diving into the process of building a fresh portfolio for Manami Design Co. It's a slow process but necessary to make sure I will draw dream clients to my one woman studio. Part of that involves launching, writing, sharing before I'm ready. Because there's never a 'right' time to do so. But I digress.

Here's the beginning of some concept work I'm doing to rebrand one of my favorite local restaurants. This place has been a part of a lot of big moments in my life including being the place where we were engaged! So it's safe to say giving them a refreshed brand, even if just for me, is a little sentimental and with the best intentions. 

For their rebrand I'd love to give them a type based, clean, modern look with bright fresh colors with a zen feel.
