The Mission

Okumura is a high-end Japanese restaurant in Encino, California that required a comprehensive set of design solutions from brand identity and guidelines to web design and photography. The client wanted a distinctly contemporary design approach that subtly referenced classical calligraphy.

OKUMURA’S GOAL

“We are proud to say that our dedication into serving the best quality sushi at a very affordable price is founded through our passion of our staff and vendors that worked together in order to make this happen.”

Final Concept

We created a logo that was designed to feel distinctly personal, like a “signature,” and that communicate the brand’s starkly minimalist approach to Japanese cuisine. The “O” shaped letter is not only pure in its circular representation, it is also the Japanese Hiragana character “く” (ku) in traditional calligraphy.
