Elevating brands

A new brand concept in the quick service restaurant industry, the founders were looking to launch a disruptive hospitality brand in the Sydney market. They came with an idea of the cuisine and flavour, a business concept and a brand name TokyoTaco, our job was to build a vibrant brand.


  1. Be game changers. Launch a new one-of-a-kind product into a fast moving market and the brand needs to reflect this.
  2. Be authentic. Blend a unique fusion of flavour, technique and passion to tell a clear brand story of individuality authentically.
  3. Be unanticipated. Craft a brand identity and visual profile that is positively disruptive in the Quick service restaurant (QSR) and hospitality market.
brand development and positioning for hospitality brand TokyoTaco

Brand Positioning

Clearly positioning TokyoTaco as a restaurant offering both Mexican and Japanese cuisines was crucial to their value proposition and connection with their market. The concept of TokyoTaco is about two different tastes working together in harmony to excite and delight. Tokyo Tastes meets Tacqueria works to technically describe what they do, and the brand promise culinary connection is what they promise every customer.

Corporate Logo

Inspired by the Japanese writing system Hiragana, we designed this brand identity to be simple, flowing and bring Mexican and Japanese culture together seamlessly.⁠
