"This Brand Identity is for Oxlot 9, an upscale, Southern, seafood restaurant in Covington, Louisiana.
The restaurant is located in a unique area of town called the “oxlots,” which are set on a diamond pattern. The Oxlot 9 logo is a fish and a nine. The scales of the fish mimic the diamond shaped city blocks of the oxlots.
The hand-drawn “etching” style speaks to the classic nature of the restaurant and to the history of the area.
This logo is inspired by the beauty of the gulf coast, and the history of Covington, LA. - See more at: http://www.howdesign.com/design-competition-galleries/logo-design-competition-awards-winners/#sthash.UJyc7omk.dpuf”
