Brand identity logo and design for Montverde


A Brand program for one of Chicago's top restaurants

Monteverde is the first restaurant from Top Chef runner-up Sarah Grueneberg. It's a stylish modern Italian cucina that creates fresh, made to order pasta and comfort dishes inspired by her travels through northern Italy.

After searching for the right partner, they chose WHQ to design their brand program. We went to work building a hand honed look and feel that fits with the rustic and industrial interior designed by Karen Herold of Studio K. Our content and concepts always keep chef Sara's love of her craft at the forefront.

We partnered with Monteverde to design and develop a brand that feels crafted yet contemporary. Our deliverables included the brand identity, responsive website design and development, packaging and more. The result, a lasting brand fit for a James Beard winning chef.
