During the Summer of 2015, I was commissioned to design the brand and décor for a new and exciting nightclub & bar opening in Nicosia, Cyprus.
I was referred to the client by a friend of mine. My contact at the bar, Thanos Pilavakis, was looking for a branding package for the new venue. I was asked to draw inspiration from the 1990s dance-music scene and London / New York nightlife.
Thanos from 303 Bar, who I reported to directly on this project, had this to say about my work:
Being based in the UK, Kerri had more of a grasp of the concept we were aiming for. He could visualise it internationally, rather than designers based here in Cyprus who are more into the native frame of mind. Kerri understood the concept and worked well.
In my initial logo designs, I specifically chose lower-case characters where possible for a futuristic feel. I drew inspiration from British record label Warp Records, early-mid 90s rave, the Roland synthesiser series and many current bars and clubs in London & New York.
After the final logo design was settled upon. I created a logo pack for use by the venue team and any third-party wishing to use the logo in print or online.
You can download the 303 Bar Logo Pack from this link.
The logos were later used for printed stickers and PVC banners for decorating the venue.
Food & Drinks Menu
No nightclub, restaurant or bar would be complete without a menu and price list, this was definitely true for 303 Bar. Upon completion of the logo design, I set to work on the venue’s food and drinks menu.
The menu was designed with clarity in mind with a sleek, dark visual to accompany the venue. You can see my menu in action in the bar itself in the photos below.
Social Media Banners
I was also asked to create social media banners for the venue’s parties to be shared on websites like Facebook to advertise the club.
