A Creative Pool project by Oscar Bastidas (United States)

This project is trying to relate a story about the non-conventional iconographic symbols that are present in the Japanese culture. Taikin is an Asian cuisine deluxe restaurant located in Florida. I was hired to develop the visual identity of the restaurant; meaning branding, and interior design. Taikin means "Fortune" in English, word that is linked to the Tanuki, I took this character as a main part of the "graphic story" that is told in the restaurant.
