Tavernetta is an Italian restaurant located in Denver’s Union Station platform. The menu features plates and beverages inspired by Italy’s multi-faceted Friuli region. Ellen Bruss Design developed the brand, stationery, menus, and web design. My role for this project was to design the logotype. Each letter was built from scratch, with inspiration drawn from old Italian marble street signs, and a subtle nod toward 1800s industrial lettering, fitting for a historic Denver train station.
