Florian Gallou designed these business cards for La Fine Bouffe, a French artisan sandwich shop that serves cuisine that’s 100% home-made and at affordable prices.
La Fine Bouffe only uses ingredients sourced locally, grown by market gardeners, while their dairy products and meats are supplied by Breton breeders. Therefore, the quality of their products are assured, and it’s important that this be reflected in the logo.
A Memorable Mascot
Florian claimed that the client requested an American mascot vibe for his brand.
“The mascot was a good compromise to be in an American style, referring to teams of collective sports or restaurant groups,” he said.
“The American design style is having an increasing impact on us here in France. Thus, we’re trying to revise and modernise it.”
“The mascot conveys a fun and a very relaxed image. It’s the image of the establishment’s management team.”
Single-Sided Business Card with Illustration
The business card design is one-sided, and even though the mascot is not included (entirely), it still manages to shine with its minimal design!
“The business card only uses a small part of the logo – the hand (illustration),” Florian said.
“It’s perfect for smaller sized communication mediums such as these while still projecting a strong image and guarantee of quality (with the raised index finger representing number ‘1’).”
“The finger drawing on the menu highlights the impeccable service in connection with the kitchen.”
A Classic/Modern Typography
The typeface used on the business card is the Moret font, a serif display type family inspired by the European sign art of the 20th century.
According to Florian, the font complements the mascot style perfectly!
“Initially, the proposed fonts were closer to typefaces such as Cooper Black or Brice Pop, ‘Neo-vintage’ fonts. However, in the end, it was the Moret that retained our intention.”
“The client was particularly pleased with its bold lettering, which suggests an imposing image.”
Blue Colour & Business Card Printing
The choice of colour was decided by the client himself.
Florian explained, “Blue was used in the visual identity that preceded the mascot. It allowed for a flexible rebranding.”
“The client preferred a monochromatic colour scheme for the entire project, in the style of many vintage identities that tend to be green or red.”
These business cards were printed on Munken Polar Rough 210g Deep Blue.
