We worked on the typographic elements to assert the authentic story of Tour d’Argent. Various typographic proposals have been made in order to find the best solution who convey the Tour d’Argent heritage. The result is inspired by the archive from the famous parisian restaurant, taking it’s roots from the 50s typographic style with a contemporary twist.
The new logotype paid an homage to Vendôme typeface used by the restaurant for years. As the sign the building still in place proved it too, sharp serifs have been in vogue during the fifties in France, it’s why we’ve added sharp details to the new logotype such the angle on the R and specific serifs on certains positions of the letters who build the logotype. As part of the redesign project, we recommended the use of secondary typefaces: Le Monde Livre Classic by Typofonderie and Darby Sans by CommercialType.
