I’ve was fortunate to work with Oceano Bistro, a high-end seafood restaurant in Clayton, Missouri, an up-scale, business district and the center of much of St. Louis City’s and County’s government offices.

The general manager sent me the chef’s special menus and gave me creative license to come up with flyers, menu inserts, and window banners. Since everything the bistro serves is handcrafted in-house, I decided on a hand-lettering look to achieve a high-end yet approachable mood.

I also re-created their logo from an old scanned copy as they did not have a vector copy. Matching the original gradients was the hardest challenge.
