CLIENT: sotto 13

Housed in a historic brownstone in New York City's charming West Village neighborhood, Sotto 13 features a menu of Italian-inspired fare, bringing new interpretations to old classics. There is a focus on hand made pastas, artisanal salumi and rustic dishes served from a wood fired oven located in the heart of the restaurant.

Services provided:

• Logo Refinement
Looking to refine their concept with small, budget-conscious changes agentsie helped to simplify the existing brand logo for clarity of use in all digital and print applications. A variation for use on social media channels was also created.

Menu & Wine List Layout
With simplification in mind across the board, a new menu layout was designed that highlights offerings aligned with the concept's strong suits; wood-fired dishes, hand made pastas and simple, seasonal Italian inspired dishes. Beverages too were removed from the existing content-heavy menu and given their own format to boost sales.

• Social Media Account Audit
While facebook, instagram, and twitter accounts existed, agentsie revised handles across platforms to present a more unified digital presence. In addition, profiles were updated to include current contact information with relevant images.
