Nest

One&Only Gorilla's Nest

This restaurant identity is inspired by footprints. And little wonder – it shares a home with Rwanda’s incredible mountain gorillas. Surrounded by eucalyptus trees in a protected jungle, One&Only Gorilla’s Nest awakens a wild spirit of adventure. To reflect that, I developed a highly crafted yet natural and primal aesthetic, combining African flair with Nordic design. Each ‘footprint’ of the environment is blind embossed into individual menu covers. Stones, stamps and natural papers are also part of the rich visual language. I have been designing for One&Only Resorts for over three years. This was a particular favourite.
