They asked me to create scratchboard style illustrations, which designer Una Helbig used to create the visual identity, stationery and restaurant menu, as well as for the packaging design of the restaurant’s artisanally produced series of products.
Illustrations for Restaurant »Clara + Jo«
At Clara + Jo, we focus on the essentials: we cook, cook and ferment, combine the familiar in new ways and conjure up delicious dishes in sea blue and sea buckthorn yellow with a love of Nordic cuisine.Clara + Jo
My illustrations show produce and ingredients like seabuckthorn, rhubarb, blackberries, plaice and honeycomb, as well as musical instruments — referencing namesakes Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms.
The illustrations are created in a novel digital scratchboard style, that references historic etchings while introducing a clean, modern edge.
