Circean Cup

Creation of the name and logo for this coffee house.

Circe, an enchantress in Greek legend, by means of a brew, or magic drink, changed Odysseus men into swine, but Odysseus, protected, compelled her to restore them to their original shape.

Circean Cup has become a literary reference meaning the cup one can not pass over; irresistible; an indulgence; intoxicating.

The icon was based on an ancient Greek architectural pattern which was combined with a custom made typeface. The logo was then sandblasted out of marble for the outdoor signage.
