Accolades, ADDY’s and Appetites
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the American Advertising Federation of Houston’s (AAFH) ADDY® Gala and Award Show and the team at Acumen Design couldn’t be more excited to be involved. With four entries winning awards, we are counting down the days to the event. We want to give you all a little sneak peak of our winning work so, over the next couple of days leading up to the show, we will post a little bit about the designs we are so proud to have honored.
First up, Category 72 Logo for the Brasserie 19 Logo System. Since joining forces with Clark Cooper Concepts in 2010, we have had the opportunity to develop a number of branding projects with their group. We couldn’t be prouder of the work we’ve done for their Brasserie 19 concept that has been chosen for this award. Created by Associate Partner, Jim Miner, the entirety of the brand identity, marketing and communications strategies, menu design, business collateral, packaging design, signage development, specialty and promotional elements, etc. are all based on the strength of this mark.
“Working with Grant Cooper and Charles Clark is a joy. They not only recognize, but insist on great design. They know the value and want to see it come to life in every one of their restaurant concepts. We are happy to oblige,” said Jim. He added, “They embody everything we look for when choosing our clients. And, we look forward to many more successful projects with them and their team.”
A nod to an international passport stamp, this mark is fresh yet timeless, playful yet sophisticated and has been described as “simple and gorgeous” and “evoking the spirit of a classic French eatery”. Thank you @CultureMap and @HoustonChronicle for the mentions, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
So, if you have visited, we’d love to know what YOU thought. And if you haven’t, you definitely should make a reservation. Their food and service are equally amazing and it will surely be a night to remember. Bon Appétit!
