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 a cup one can not pass over; irresistible; an indulgence.

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