Sister restaurant to il Bistro, Amaro Bistro is located in the heart of downtown Bothell and features contemporary Italian dining. The design of the restaurant is clean and warm, featuring large paintings and posters of old Amaro advertisements. The logo became a modern take on those 1920's brands.
I designed the logo and much of the printed material. The red dot has been integrated into the architecture of the restaurant, carved and painted on the back of a handful of chairs. I also designed the pattern for 3 barrel style lampshades that hang above the main dining area. The lamps were fashioned after ones seen in Italy - wrapped in Italian phrases and liquor labels. The shades contain personal messages from the owners friends and family translated into Italian, and feature notable Amaro liquor brand names.
