The Honours

Bringing a touch of Parisian flair to Scotland’s capital.

Martin Wishart is one of the UK’s most respected restaurateurs, with two Michelin-starred restaurants to his name. We created the name and identity for a more informal, Parisian-influenced brasserie in Edinburgh.

Given its illustrious location on North Castle Street, we named this new venture The Honours — in 1818, Sir Walter Scott famously unearthed the crown jewels, the Honours of Scotland, at Edinburgh Castle. We crafted a marque based on the initials ‘TH’, which also form an abstracted profile of a table and chairs setting.

Working with photographer Matt Davis, we art directed a suite of images that communicated the vibrancy and atmosphere of the space. We also produced an accompanying suite of collateral for the restaurant reflecting the venue’s sense of luxury and attention to detail.
