Ogurets restaurant
Local cousine restaurant in Suzdal with a scent of khrenovukha
One of the most famous holidays in Suzdal is Cucumber Day (we'd call it Ogurets Day in this article, so it sound similiar to russian). Suzdal residents celebrate the Day of the Ogurets, but there had been no special place to celebrate it. Together with the entrepreneur and the former head of Suzdal, who was behind the Suzdal brand creation, we helped to create a memorable restaurant "Ogurets" in Suzdal, where you can celebrate this holiday in the remaining 364 days. Since its opening, it became one of the most legendary restaurants in Suzdal, worth to visit.

Client: Entrepreneur and the former head of Suzdal, Igor Erikovich Kekhter

Work: branding, design, illustrations

Here you should definitely try pearl porridge with duck cooked in a pot, and drink it with a shot of cucumber juice infused with own pickles. We love creating projects with local businesses about local gastronomic specialties in the places.

Ogurets identity is mostly handmade, as well and represents a good example of lettering, like most of our early works.
There are changes between two patterns: the one from cafe and the one from the restaurant.
  • Cafe

    1. Bright
    2. Childish
  • Restaurant

    1. Less vivid colors
    2. More calm
Design is heavily relied on font design, here are the most demonstrative examples.
All the elements shown above, are excellently combined together on the restaurant merch
