Elements from the logo are taken out and made solid within the shop/hotel/restaurant that the branding has been created for. Examples of this can be seen in the images. The triangles in the Paramount Restaurant Hotel or the crepe moon motif for Crepe Af...

Definitely worth checking out his website. There's a lot of great work on there and a short video....

I love the contrast between the paper crafted illustration in colo...
