Melt Zagreb – Sharing stories. Melt is a place with a phenomenal gelato that melts your worries away & is a perfect spot for gluten-free healthy brunch. But it’s never just about food, is it? It’s about self-care, both in terms of eating healthy and nourishing food with no hard-to-pronounce ingredients, as well as in terms of socialising. With Melt, food is the communication starter.
With the mission to promote sustainability, and inclusivity while still serving high-quality food - a warm integrated system of visual & verbal identity was created.
The visual identity communicates it all, from the creation to the serving of food to the social components and experiences that result from it. The logotype consists of letters that have a “melting” effect which reflects and mixes these experiences. Visitors can notice a variety of ingredients through engaging illustrations that can be combined as patterns, which carry values of wide application & easy implementation both for the project production of all on and off-screen materials, as well as interior & entrance design. As the colour palette comes from the meals they provide, Melt’s main colour is blueberry-inspired because of its strong antioxidant properties. In addition to conveying a sense of seriousness and quality origin of food, the blueberry colour symbolizes business and encourages thinking about possible expansions to further locations.
