We designed the logo, branding, business stationery and gift vouchers for Ananda restaurant. Ananda is Ireland’s premier fine dining restaurant. Ananda’s impeccable pedigree, enviable location and stunning interior design made it Dublin’s most anticipated restaurant opening of 2008. A series of superlative restaurant reviews quickly cemented its reputation as one of Ireland’s finest dining experiences.
Ananda’s décor redefines customer’s expectations of Indian restaurants. The dining room features a number of striking design statements, which are quietly opulent while complementing the comfortable welcoming warmth of design theme. The eye is drawn up to the glowingly rich, honey-coloured, water lily inspired chandeliers, while aubergine, lime and cerise velvet upholstery adds vibrancy and life to the seating.
Our goal was to design the branding that would complement the striking interiors which is why we selected hot pink and lime green as the key colours. We created a stylised, abstract Ganesh God motif for the logo. Ganesh, with his elephant head makes him easy to identify, and is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of the arts and sciences, and the god of intellect and wisdom.
