You're Welcome.
I was tasked with updating the visual brand and identity of Topher’s Burgers & Biscuits in Midtown Hattiesburg, Mississippi. This restaurant is known for their delectable breakfast options and mouth-watering burgers. We created a character based off the name “Topher” that embodies the essence of the brand revitalization. As he smiles, he offers a burger to you straight off the griddle. Instead of giving a “Thank you” to the customer, he confidently and unapologetically states - “You’re Welcome”.

How the Sausage is Made.
Drawing inspiration from 30's and 40's cartoon design and brands like Hobo and Sailor, we were able to land on the icon/portrait of Topher that now carries the identity of the brand.

With the flagship restaurant sitting across the street from a university campus, we thought adding the classic "marching mascot" as a brand element could add a certain level of familiarity to the restaurants roots, as well as providing slight snark and comedy to the look.
Explorations and Sketches for the Topher's Primary Identity.
A Versatile System for a Versatile Restaurant.
When constructing the Topher’s identity system, I wanted to make sure that it was versatile enough to use on a variety of applications. Topher’s is not only an excellent burger joint, but their breakfast is untouchable in quality. I created an icon system to use on fry wrappers that could also be used on breakfast platters as well.
