Nick and Nora Cocktail Co.
A small cocktail catering company based in Salem, OR approached me looking for help with logo design and branding. Their name is a nod to both the Nick and Nora cocktail glass as well as the fictional crime-solving couple, Nick and Nora Charles.
In the branding for this project, I wanted to highlight the old Hollywood aesthetic of the 1950s TV series “The Thin Man” (in which the Charles are the main characters). I did this by using a slightly grainy photograph treatment, focusing on a primarily black and white pallete, and including an early 20th century-inspired font I created. I chose to fashion the brandmark after Nick and Nora’s dog, Asta, to symbolize the playfulness, loyalty, and energy of the service provided by the company.
