Khun Jo's

Khun Jo's approached us to help them concept and cultivate ideas for a new Thai restaurant focused on authentic, fast-casual Thai food. We built this brand from the ground up starting with the identity, to packaging, uniforms, all the way to products for grocery.

Developing the Identity

The logo needed to feel comforting and warm. The name Khun Jo's translates to "Mr. Jo's"; Jo himself being the father of the family-run business. That family-focus needed to come through in the logo as well as the rest of the branding.

An Authentic Thai Experience

It was important that every detail of the restaurant spoke to the authenticity of the food and the overall Thai-experience. The menus were hand-painted to look like traditional Thai restaurant signage as well as various lettering and illustrated pieces throughout the space. The whole experience was branded as a franchise for future growth in other cities with a design system that could easily be carried through other locations.

Khun Noi Fine Oriental Teas

These teas were named after Jo's wife and the name translates to "Mrs. Noi." The teas themselves are served in the restaurant and were packaged for retail. Each bag is stamped, packed, and labeled by hand.
