The Commons


   Branding & identity
  Graphic design 


The Commons is the restaurant within The Student Hotel that connects people from all walks of life. Bringing students, travelers, freelancers, entrepreneurs and neighborhood locals together over the joy of food and drinks. To discover the other passions we have in common.

It’s a place for drinks
that lead to dinner that leads to who knows what…

The graphic design consists of different illustrated patterns that can be used separately for different purposes.

The graphic style is defined by a small textured motif, that emphasises the character of The Commons: playful and pleasant. This is supported by muted colours to create an

enjoyable approach to the different areas.

The patterns can be mixed and matched on different products, which gives the overall identity, a look people will instantly recognise.

The integrated lighting makes the signing stand out.
