Black & Tan Hall is a cooperatively-owned performing arts and restaurant venue which seeks to maintain Rainier Valley as a destination for cross-cultural arts and education events. Historically, Black & Tan clubs offered a haven for people of all races in an era when segregation dictated social boundaries. The B&T Hall embraces that inclusive ethos while celebrating Seattle’s rich music and arts history.
I designed the Black & Tan Hall logo. The logo needed to evoke the rich Art Deco history of its inspiration and fit with the Art Deco-meets-DIY ethos of the Hall. Each letter in the logo was hand-drawn and then digitized.
Above, the logo hand-worked in copper. Below, a monogram version of the logo, and logo application on business cards and t-shirts.
