full visual identity, Warsaw | 2011
In 2011 Ula Eriksen mentioned to me in confidence that she wanted to open a restaurant in Sadyba district in Warsaw. I was responsible for designing the logo and all the prints for Nabo. Ula’s husband, Steffen, is Danish and NABO (neighbour in Danish) was intended as a Scandinavian safe haven in Sadyba. A warm, bright and simple place with a playroom for children. The floor tiles served as inspiration as they appear on the menu, business cards and prints.
NABO is like my second home which made this project even more special for me.
A few words about NABO:
“Our café was born of our love for Sadyba (district of Warsaw), forgotten and yet just asking to be placed on the culinary map of Warsaw, and our passion for cooking and Scandinavia. The land of calm, order and ubiquitous ecology. The kingdom of bicycles and beautiful design, wonderful fairy tales and extraordinary poetry. As a Polish-Danish family we wished to create our own little Copenhagen in Warsaw.”
It is worth mentioning that NABO received the most prestigious award given to restaurants in Warsaw- it became the Restaurant of the Year in 2012 by the newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza.
