‘De La Mer’, a neighborhood fish market in Toronto specializing in organic and naturally raised fresh fish and seafood, approached creative agency Gladstone Media Inc. and gave them a brief to create a suitable identity for their brand. The firm brilliantly rose to the challenge and created a classic yet modern brand that would not only feel at home as a part of the community but also convey “a current, streamlined sensibility.”
Classic literary quotes featured throughout the space serve as a touchstone to a past era. Custom vintage-style typography, hand-lettered cursive, etched wood, and eclectic found objects give the brand an organic, homegrown aesthetic that sets De La Mer apart from its competitors.
