Eem is Portland’s favorite spot for Thai BBQ, tropical cocktails, and good times. To compliment the intensely flavored cuisine we developed a visual language representative of late nights on Thai beaches—fueled by spicy food, festive drinks and good friends, anything could happen. The aesthetic was carried out through vibrating colors and psychedelic typography, as well as interior design that encouraged a jovial atmosphere.
Eem appears on just about every list of where to eat in Portland, and has won numerous awards. I’m currently working on brand and interior design for two other restaurants run by Chef Earl Ninsom (owner of Eem). Please reach out if you’d like to take a look!
