For TOKY’s fourth project for restauranteur Dave Bailey, we developed a cheerfully warm identity for a much-anticipated burgers-and-shakes spot smack-dab in the middle of downtown St. Louis.
Reviews of Range’s food have been great. Fortunately for us, the same goes for their menus. (The phrase used by leading design blog Art of the Menu: “highly lickable.”)
Prominent St. Louis restaurateur Dave Bailey has opened four restaurants, and TOKY has been proud to craft — and sustain — the identity for each one: Baileys’ Chocolate Bar; Rooster; Bridge; and, most recently, Baileys’ Range, a bustling burgers-and-shakes spot at the corner of 10th and Olive in downtown St. Louis.
The restaurant’s name has a few different meanings — the range of options on the menu, yes, but also the open natural landscape, the range out on the farm. (All the beef here is grass-fed, free-range, and local.) We knew, though, that we wanted to steer clear of all the cliches that can zap the joy out of those very meanings. No Western type. No longhorns.
What TOKY created matches the place: fun, rich with texture, totally unique. From the identity to the menus, signage, and clothing, we sought to create an authentic, warm, and cheerful vibe for a place you’d be happy to come with your family, have drinks with your friends, or end the evening with a freshly made shake. The TOKY team greatly enjoyed partnering with Scott Pondrom of Design Deli to create the illustrations you see in the print, signage, and website work.
