Le Pierrot cafe-restaurant asked us to make a bespoke sign following their full renovation after acquiring a new space. The result was to design and make a sign using two layers of real 24 cart gold leafs that would convey the aristocratic atmosphere that follows the visitor when he/she enters the venue.
The Piraeus Book Fair takes place in Pasa Limani, the main yacht marina of Piraeus, every year and attracts thousands of visitors. Since the arrival of tablets into our everyday lives the book market has taken a blow. The aim over the past four years is to create striking visuals for the Book Fair in order to attract a younger audience into the magical world of books.
The circular shape represents an archaic form deriving from the geometric art found on pots in Mycinea which, in this case, was selected to represent the meaning of culture. The 3dimensional texture gives a sense of sea since the fair is held next to the sea.
Point-Cut barber shop had it's 10th birthday anniversary and it's owner decided it was about time to have a face-lift. There was a need to hide the upper part of the shop's facade but still be able to let the light pass through.
So we came upon a simple solution of vertical wooden lines with a discrete minimal sign. We also designed custom metal hangers to support the weight of all sign (150kg). The result is simple and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

Giannis Thalassinos and his team of experts live and work on Paros Island. They design and construct dream houses fusing modern techniques with traditional Aegean house building. The result is just stunning.
We were given the task to completely redesign his website and try to give something of the magic of simplicity that flows through his own constuctions.
The result was a very simple yet highly impactful conglomerate of style and function that boosted the website's unique visitors from around the world.

Emilios Head Office is the result of a clear vision and hard meticulous work by many experts. Every detail was carefully thought through by designers, architects and of course the owner. The final product is a barber shop that takes you back in time both visually and emotionally.
Our task was to invent a playful and visually interesting way of presenting 3 different service packs for it's existing customers (individuals or companies) that wanted to give a personalized present to someone special.

When you take the ferry to Milos and reach the idyllic port of Adamas, the first shop you will come upon is Aggeliki. Home of 72 different flavours of top quality ice-cream and sweets.
The love of the owners for what they do and their amazing attention to detail gave us the inspiration to redesign their identity which had a measurable impact on their repeat and new customers from all over Greece.
Marisa Churchill is a renown Greek-American pastry chef who makes delicious, low calorie, healthy deserts. In collaboration with Green Olive Films they decided that she should come to Athens and make a series on Alpha TV just on that.
As Marisa speaks in both greek and english, we decided to transfer that effect into the graphics that are used for the recipes. We used one of our favourite typefaces (Veneer) for our main text, but because Veneer doesn't have any greek letters, every greek letter was substituted with GFS-Solomos typeface.
The effect is wonderful and successfully translated Marisa's way of speaking.
Bullbust is a true street burger place designed with stripped wood and raw metal by artist George Milonas. The idea was to use recycled wood and metal pieces that would not be "polished" to look nice but retain their true natural identity. The roughness was transferred to the feeling of the logo and all printed material.
Special care was given to the interior menus of the store. The aim was to create an ever changing art piece of a poster loaded street wall by pasting layers of paper on the wall each time the menu would change. In a period of six months the layering was achieved and the feeling was there!
West End is actually situated at the most western end of Athens. In cooperation with designer and illustrator Anastasia Tsoupa, our part was to translate the graphic language that she designed into signage and interior decoration for the restaurant.
The heraldic logo of WE gave us the chance to play with glossy black plexiglass on the main sign and the illustations for the placemat migrated on the walls printed on 10mm PVC sheets that were then cut on a CNC table mill.
