I was hired by a local restaurant in Astoria, Queens to renovate the interior and exterior,
to help make it a more inviting spot for guests to hang out, eat and drink.
The work was put on hold due to COVID-19, but has resumed in early July of this year.
These are the only photographs I have right now, once the job is complete I'll do a proper photoshoot.
I want to give the restaurant a fun and inviting feel, like the no frills, cheap and delicious place that it is.
I came up with the color palette from some 90's signage, and given there are a lot of young people living in that neighborhood I wanted to go for a somewhat 90's look, while having my loose and free style present.
Below is some of the process work and final PSD and Illustrator files
After a lot of sketching and some studying of old signage, restaurant looks, and some current artists approach to this,
I began working on the final images, starting with the menu signs.
