Philadelphia Restaurant Branding

Making A Gourmet Gem Shine

The space at Wedge & Fig is something out of a storybook; a secret secluded garden hidden away from the noisy Philadelphia streets. Push10 re-imagined the Wedge & Fig brand language and created a logo system that reflects the vibrance and sophistication of the restaurant’s ambiance and cuisine.

A Truly Custom Identity

We began with the logo. We talked to friends, we stopped people on the street and we gauged countless reactions. While the old mark wasn’t offending anyone, most thought that it was too sterile and a bit childish for such a unique European ambiance. Hours of research later, our team discovered a library of painted signs from Parisian storefronts. We decided that we could add a modern twist to the centuries old artform with watercolors, and the big idea was born.

For Every Personality, There’s a Cheese

To apply the new brand to the take-out gourmet cheese counter, we focused on the business card, which was designed to be used as a hang tag on house-made products for an impromptu packaging solution. To package larger wedges of cheese, we created custom paper and sticker labels.

At The Table // An Interactive Menu

In order to accommodate the frequently changing specials, we developed a menu system that allows staff to handwrite updates and recommendations – a mini version of the restaurant’s existing chalkboard menus. We incorporated custom-drawn icons which added a bit of fun and flourish to the text.

On the Go // Not For Sharing

Push10 developed a bold takeout bag to subtly advertise the cafe’s high quality menu. The clever packaging also served as a conversation starter for those unfamiliar with the brand.

On the Streets // Increased Visibility

To give the new brand the attention it deserves, the design and copywriting teams sat down to develop a series of outdoor advertisements. Using clever copy, custom photography and old-school sign painting techniques, we were able to devise a campaign that could redirect both foot and auto traffic to our favorite local cheese shop.

Custom Photography

We set up an in-house photo shoot to capture a high-quality primary banner image.

A Call to Action

Rather than burying the restaurant’s hours and address on the contact page, we brought them front and center for increased visibility.

User-Friendly Menus

Bold links to each menu are prominent on every device, making it easy for users to view the restaurant’s offerings at any time.

The Recipe for a Responsive Restaurant Website

To bring the Wedge & Fig world online, we began with an in-house photo shoot. The food translated wonderfully to the screen, where we focused on crafting a responsive menu that was accessible from any device.
