The Fish & Bull 

Tom Walsh, head chef approached us about rebranding his gastro pub with a traditional old world look and new name.  He wanted to highlight the use of locally sourced fish and beef and had the idea of using imagery from old Irish coins.  Upon researching the original drawings by Percy Metcalfe and the ideas behind using the Salmon and Bull, it seems that he too wanted to pay tribute to these iconic animals which have important historical connections with Ireland.  

 

The images chosen were lovingly redrawn and given an oxidised look and the new name presented itself out of those drawings. The images were drawn first in Adobe Illustrator and then painted and shaded in Adobe Photoshop.  This is one of our favourite logos to date.
