Rick and Nicole recently commissioned me a mural for Mr Peel Cafe in Collingwood, Melbourne. The briefing was creating an organic shape in black and white displaying specific ingredients from Mr Peel’s menu.
The client suggested designing a beautifully organic form that was not necessarily obvious to recognize at first glance.
I wrote down a list of herbs and ingredients mentioned in our meeting and I decided to go with lemon flowers, lemons (as the branding colour is yellow) and celery.
I presented my first sketch to the client. Looking for something more minimalistic, Nicole and Rick simplified my proposal suggesting to only use the celery leaves. I updated the sketch and they signed off on it.
Dimensions: The mural is nearly 4 x 4 metres
Materials: Posca permanent markers
