Turns out, all Martin’s team needed for visual reference was right there in their back yard, which happens to be in Harlem—from the architecture, to the signage and storefronts, to the mosaic tiles found in the subway stops. All of these elements played a factor in the resulting logo.

The complete story of the development of the Harlem EatUp! brand, as well as 21 more exclusive, in-depth case studies will be featured in LogoLounge 9.
