Quote from the customer
„I’ve known Laice for about four years and every time an opportunity comes up where I can plug/promote his work, I do it. I’ve seen his work throughout the years, the dedication that goes into making the designs, and the consistency with his uploads and quality. I finally got the opportunity to commission some work. Considering the fact that I am from California and he’s from Germany, I thought we would’ve had a little bit of trouble with the time difference and communication but no, he went above and beyond to make sure my boss and I were satisfied with every detail. It was truly a pleasure working with him and I can’t wait to get more work done in the near future with other clients I bring to him!“
HIBACHI Master Abel card was designed entirely according to the Chinese model. Here Chinese knots and wall ornaments are the inspiration.
The card was designed with all the main colors of the design layout in order to create a connection between the card and the logo for the customer, so that the card can also be assigned to the catering service without a logo and only on the basis of the card.
The color combination of red and black is clearly recognizable in the example of business cards. Little text and more information about social media and the website belong here on the back of the card. Here again in the branding style of the brand with a black front and red back.
The red back because red is a kind of „alarm color“ for the human eye. Thus, they are more likely to turn the card over and read the information presented to them.
Websites are often full of unnecessary images and patterns. In this case, the focus was entirely on minimalism and color schemes. The subdivision of the areas with different colors of the brand is a large and important part of the user experience but also of the interface.
First, the customer is taken to the homepage, where the logo and a picture of the catering service can be seen. Thus, the customer knows directly that he is on the right page. Likewise, the entire design process was limited to the 4 branding colors in order to create recognition with the brand.
The chopsticks were designed based entirely on the card and the key visual. Hibachi master abel now has the right chopstick packaging for every occasion, which customers can take with them. These packs have one side with Pure design and the other with information about Hibachi master abel
