Rashers sandwich header


Rashers is a locally owned and operated purveyor of bacon sandwiches — using fresh ingredients, ethically sourced pork and special sauces made-in-house. With the potential to franchise in their future, Rashers hired us to give their brand an overhaul in helping to differentiate itself from other sandwich shops and bacon competitors. We reconsidered their identity from the ground up — using a hand drawn logo to create that neighbourhood feel while balancing it with a more modern colour palette. The development of other brand collateral is in the works.
