Bar and restaurant Goolies opens in London’s Kensington on Monday, with interiors and graphics designed by Rawls & Company. The venue is named after the consultancy’s client Mike Gooley, owner of travel firm Trailfinders. The 110m2 space can seat 46 people and features light walls and an oval window at one end so that diners can see their food being prepared. Furniture was supplied by metalwork design firm Arcangel to the consultancy’s brief, which was to create an ‘organic, rustic, almost medieval atmosphere’, according to Rawls. The hand-drawn logo aims to convey a ‘friendly graphic style’ without relying on colour interpretation.
Bright, bold and racy images jump from the pages, making this report and accounts brochure stand out from the crowd. Art directed by influential Swiss designer Roger Pfund for Austrian lighting company Zumtobel, the colourful report continues a track record of highly designed accounts from international stars including Gert Dumbar and Neville Brody. Other designers who worked on the latest report were Stefanie Haldimann and Serge Borel. Pictured is the Draugen oil rig in the North Sea.
