Sweet Basilico is a small family owned restaurant tucked in the small mountain town of Estes Park Colorado. First opened in 1997, the original logo for the restaurant held a flourishing basil leaf. As time passed the restaurant grew and gained a following of loyal customers.
When we were first approached by Shawn and Raul to redesign their logo we knew one thing could not change, the basil. The original featured the simple Brush script, which had been popular at the time. Over the years Brush Script has begun to fall out of trend. So sticking to the business's routes, we used a combination of Dancing Script and Fontin Sans to achieve a clean high contrast between fonts. The new basil icon resembles the former, but in a much more light-hearted way.
