The Kitchen - Branding and Website Ideation by MRC

The Kitchen

In September, we moved into a new office in the heart of Downtown Raleigh, perched upon the fourth floor of the historic Raleigh Building. Also moving into the space with us, our talented friends at Food Seen (photography, social media management & videography), NC F&B (podcast and restaurant consultation), and Matthew Konar Architect (restaurant and bar architecture and interiors). With each of us servicing the hospitality and food & beverage industries, it was a no-brainer for all of us to work together in a collaborative environment. It was also a no-brainer that we needed to name and brand our new space!

We unanimously landed on naming our space The Kitchen. With the name solidified, we had some fun and created the above hand-lettered script logotype with a custom illustrated flame monogram logo mark. And it didn’t take long for us to turn the new identity into pins, stickers, and initial website concepts. Follow what’s going on at The Kitchen over on instagram at @TheKitchenRaleigh and if you find yourself in Downtown Raleigh, swing by and say hey!


Reveal Mobile - Icons, Graphics, Website Design and Development by MRC

Reveal Mobile

The location-based marketing and analytics company, based in Raleigh, came to MRC needing an updated identity and completely redesigned and developed website. The kicker, they needed it within a couple short months for their product release. With their tight timeline, we took an all-hands-on-deck approach, meeting their deadline and exceeding their expectations. Check out their brand new website at revealmobile.com and see more about the project on our Featured Project page.


Locals Oyster Bar - Logo Design and Branding by MRC

Locals Oyster Bar

As of writing this, Locals Oyster Bar is on the brink of opening in the new Transfer Co Food Hall in Downtown Raleigh. A place for community and slurpin’ oysters, we designed the brand for Locals Oyster Bar as a nod to the coast where Locals all began; The hand-painted, sun-faded and weathered textures of the coast meets a clean, modern aesthetic in this brand. From the city sunrise marks, to the hidden coastline in the oyster, every element was created with intention, giving Locals the familiar feeling of having been around for decades. It was a blast getting work closely with the team at Locals, hearing their stories and learning about their craft. Learn more about the project on our Featured Project page.
