Buttermilk Channel.







The Buttermilk Channel, a newish restaurant (opened in November of 2008) in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn is where we took Matt's Mom for her belated birthday meal last night (I love that she knew about this place before we did). This establishment is named after the small channel of water between Brooklyn and Governor's Island. The food was good, the interior simple and clean and welcoming, and the design the same as the interior. A strong powder blue on white was all that the design team of this restaurant chose to use for their typography and minimal graphics (though their logo and their menus on their website are showing up differently). There are a small amount of nautical elements in place and I think they work wonderfully. The menus, the signage, the website...all of it. Unfortunately no amount of googling has let me find out who made this graphic design come to life.
