As the more whimsical counterpart to sister restaurant, AIX, Tin Tin wine bar pays homage to Chef Nick Leahy’s childhood memories of living in France. Inspired by the countless hours spent alongside his Great-Aunt, fondly called Tin Tin, the backbar design is reminiscent of the kitchen in which Chef Nick first discovered his love for the culinary arts. White and blue diamond-shaped wall tiles are pieced together to read “TINTIN” as a modern take on hand-painted mosaic tiles often found in provincial kitchens. The red star is a subtle reference to the Mediterranean star, a motif also found in subtle details within the restaurant.

Staying true to the whimsical, hand drawn character and clear line drawing style, ai3 developed a custom font inspired by comic book alliterations. The full alphabet was hand drawn in both capital and lowercase letters before being digitized into an open type face.

To the Drawing Board

Playful, yet sophisticated, the menu design takes inspiration from comic book storyboards. The wooden menu board is reminiscent of a “drawing board”, while the red rubber band that hold the menu together is inspired by Great-Aunt Tin Tin’s weathered recipe book.
