Secret Restaurant

Book

Secret Restaurant is an experimental restaurant founded by Bob Dornberger that explores America’s current attitudes toward food. Billed as the worlds tiniest restaurant, and located in the extreme climate of the Mojave Desert outside of Joshua Tree, is only 16 square feet. We designed the book as a documented, field manual to accommodate the restaurants unique location and to give it a more in-process feel.

MIJNshop

Identity

An Identity for MIJNshop & MIJNcollectie, a shop and fashion collection inspired by the heritage of coal mining in the Netherlands. We designed logotypes for the name that can be used independently or as a collective, inspired by both the ruggedness of mining and the delicateness of threading. The graphical system for the posters was inspired by the nuances of each designer's style translated into unique graphical symbols.

MIJNshop & MIJNcollectie is made possible by SCHUNCK* musuem, FASHIONCLASH, 100% Heerlen, and M2015 Foundation.

Designed in collaboration with Eline Mul.
