The Library

The Library Pittsburgh

Working on a proposed redesign of a local favorite. The Library has a unique atmosphere and great menu. I thought by going with a letterpress style logo that draws inpiration from 70’s educational design (maybe Sesame Street) but bringing that trend into the now while giving it a unique look to reflect their atmosphere and tying the logo in to a redesign of their menu as well.


To better describe the restaurant here is how they put it on their current website.
