Tib Street Tavern is a new Manchester pub created with age-old values in a modern world. In research we looked at old pubs across the UK and, more importantly, how their signage looked. It became clear that in an era before digitised typefaces things were done by hand. In essence each pub we looked at had its own unique, hand-rendered logotype.
Taking this influence we commissioned a bespoke hand drawn typeface for Tib Street Tavern. And as the venue's original heritage was as a Victorian pet shop we also created illustrations of some select animals.
The branding very much focuses on a modern interpretation of a tavern using traditional techniques and references.
