Monday Marks: #7
Wall House, Gustavia, Saint Barthélemy
Create a mark and graphic identity for Wall House, a seaside restaurant in Saint Barthélemy. The resident chef at Wall House serves French cuisine infused with Asian and American influences. Patrons include loyal locals as well as tourists and wine enthusiasts. The restaurant is named after the neighboring Swedish Museum’s prominent stone wall, which serves as a backdrop for diners.
The mark we created includes a rugged monolithic slab, offering a visual illustration to match the edifice next door. This strong graphic element is both referential and unforgettable.
For the display of the restaurant name, we chose the typeface Beo Sans, characterized by its ragged edges. The typography echoes the materials of the island’s rustic architecture, natural beauty, and the raw, creative expression of Wall Houses’ chef. Click identity to see examples of this graphic mark.
