Masala Darbar

  • Masala Darbar is an Indian Cafe & Restaurant with a long tradition. The restaurant desires  to make the experience of their customers unforgettable. The major focus is on the intimate food experience that small groups will find so special while still providing the availability of larger private rooms and spaces that can be utilized by tours and larger parties. Tradition, spices, and the deepest care in what they do is what defines Masala Darbar. The menu is varied to please the most discriminating palates, concentrating on the traditional and spicy Indian food.
    It was necessary to communicate the new brand without falling into the stereotypes of the category: hot and spicy food. So, the strategy was to make this ethnic food restaurant modern and pleasing to all kinds of consumers. The typeface selected is Cheap Pine, that came out of a search for traditional fonts with a contemporary feel which reflected Masala Darbar and its tradition.
    As a part of the process, I designed the new responsive website and layouts for the restaurant, that help the customers to order food via mobiles and tablets.
