Columbia Room’s cocktail tasting menus change seasonally and are constructed around a theme. For their “distortion” themed menu, the bartenders focused on ways to warp the ingredients in the cocktails, so I designed some twisted typography to illustrate the warping effect.
This tasting course was inspired by different types of spectra, including the sound spectrum. One drink was served from a singing meditation bowl, and when it was struck, cymatic patterns in the liquid emerged. This menu design was inspired by the patterns that appear on cymatic sound plates.
Pop Up Bar is a rotating pop-up featuring a seasonally changing themed bar. These menu designs feature illustrations of iconic Game of Thrones drinking vessels and other insignia.
