GAMBA Copenhagen

Located in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, a middle eastern takeaway shop is opening its doors.

Passionate about food, Avi, the owner, came to Lazy snail Design searching for a logo design based on the selected name, Gamba.

Gamba has multiple meanings - it could be a prawn, the Gamba bell pepper or the Gamba viola. After exploring food-related logo designs, we decided to give our design a twist and experiment with the form of a viola. We came up with this alternative Centaurus, with the head of a rooster and the body of a viola.  For the typography we utilised characteristic visual attributes of the arabic language such as continuous characters and decorative diacritics.
