AMSTERDAM TANNING & CAFE – IDENTITY
 
Amsterdam Tanning & Cafe is a spot with a double aim: guests have the option of using tanning beds, while they can also meet up with friends next to a nice cup of coffee or a fresh, healthy meal.
 
It was important for the logo to be useable across a wide range of platforms, as 'Amsterdam' will not only be the name of the tanning salon and cafe, but also of healthy food and drink products.

THE LOGO
 
The coat of arms of Amsterdam city contains three silver Saint Andrew's Crosses. I wanted to keep a reference to this number, which is why the name 'Amsterdam' is written in a 3-by-3 grid.
 
The logo has further alternatives (landscape, with and without 'Tanning & Cafe'), but an additional symbol (bringing in the cross) was also developed to be used as a complimentary design element.

BRANCHES
 
The different branches of the 'Amsterdam' brand are signified by different patterns. Each pattern is conceptually connected to the specific branch it symbolizes.
