Identity Program + Menu System + Signage + Promotional Material + Cookbook
Huit à Dix is a community kitchen founded by fictional chef Lèo Cortès, the great-grandson of post-Impressionist artist Édouard Cortès. The Parisian restaurant and corresponding cookbook explore the experience and voice of typographic design and imagery. The printed materials address cultural and psychological dynamics of information exchange through the use of sensory encounters. The restaurant is built around history, community, time, and authenticity. Huit à Dix, translates to Eight to Ten. This emphasis on time is drawn from Cortès’ ability to capture a moment in his paintings and transport the viewer to a place in Paris.
