Signboard Design

Group 480.png

This design employs the Chinese character "宝藏" (Baozang), meaning "Imperial Treasure," crafted into an ancient stone seal pattern for the restaurant's branding. It emulates the seals of classical Chinese calligraphers, utilizing Han Dynasty small seal script with a near-square form and traces of clerical script influence, typically reserved for formal occasions and embellishing metalware.

Manu Design


My client wishes to design and custom-produce a series of menus infused with an ancient Chinese aesthetic. The collection should include options for affordable breakfast and lunch as well as sophisticated, creative culinary offerings, catering to the demands of diverse diner demographics. The style should be simple yet elegant.

Most of the design content involves proprietary business secrets and the designer does not have the authority to display it on personal websites. For further information, please contact Rebecca via email at
