Restaurant logo best practices

Colorful Windows with Trees Indoors

Color

Choose a color that resonates with your restaurant customers. You’ll want to use colors that convey the kind of atmosphere your restaurant provides. Green hues are associated with healthy eating, where red tones convey passion and tradition—like a wine bar or Italian eatery. A vivid color can entice passersby, but you want to keep your color choices simple to avoid overcomplicating your printing needs.

Phone Layout with Logo on Screen

Layout

Today’s restaurants need to market themselves across a wide variety of mediums. Gone are the days where your logo would only appear on your restaurant’s sign and menu. Now, your restaurant’s logo might appear on everything from social media, to booking websites, to takeaway packaging, and decals. Opt for a clean layout that looks great at different sizes, to ensure customers can always identify your restaurant’s brand.

Large Letter A on Rusted Background

Typography

Give customers a taste of your brand’s personality, by choosing an adventurous font for your restaurant logo. While some restaurants create custom typefaces to stand out from the competition, you don’t need to go this route. Instead, look for fonts that reflect your personality—whether that’s traditional, experimental, or irreverent. If no one font seems to fit your restaurant’s name and brand, try combining multiple fonts in your logo.

Elaborate Ampersand Symbol on Crowded Desk

Symbol

Consider the style of food you offer, the cultural significance, and the atmosphere when picking a symbol for your restaurant logo. Don’t worry about incorporating every aspect of your restaurant into your symbol—only the most core traits you want to highlight. Remember: treat your symbol as an appetizer for your brand, not the full meal. As you select a symbol, make sure it complements your other restaurant design elements, to create a balanced look for your logo.
