Here
Restaurant : Bangkok, Thailand.

Its been quite a joy to create branding and identity design for Michelin star chef, Garima Arora’s new venture, HERE - a Modern Indian Breakfast Kitchen by day and Lounge by night. HERE is now running with increasing popularity since its launch in Bangkok in November 2020.
As I see the @here_bkk team top up their Instagram with mouthwatering dishes, I hope this year takes me by BKK sometime to savour some of their delicious specials!




The identity draws its inspiration from the various kinds of cuisines and experiences that this ‘House of Modern Indian Flavours’ brings. A feeling of lounge, light, contemporary, and a connotation of high cuisine is stimulated with the cups, glasses and bowls being placed on ‘stilts’. As the tako-sun rises and sets.
