The branding of Samurai Japanese Cuisine in Yerevan is based on the brand concept of samurai fish characters ready to scarify themselves to serve the customers the freshest sushi and other delicious food from Japanese cuisine.
"Our objective was to create a new brand identity that would attract new customers, especially young people and opinion leaders who might be shocked by the identity. "
The team came up with the idea of samurai fish who commit hara-kiri to satisfy their Emperors, i.e. their customers. This unusual Japanese ritual and the peculiarities of Japanese cuisine inspired the designers to create four characters of self-sacrificing fishes; TUNA, SHRIMP, OCTOPUS and the CONGER.
A simple typographic solution has been given to the logotype of the brand. A Latin font was stylized to create a visual connection with Japanese calligraphy and to pass on a taste of Japan. Blue has been chosen as the dominant color for the brand identity mostly to convey the idea that here the fish is fresh and organic. The dark colors black and grey are to emphasize the premium quality and price aspect of the brand.
To emotionally connect with the visitors and communicate the message of self-sacrificing fishes we created stories; the philosophical thoughts of the master fishes.
These philosophical thoughts were also translated into Japanese language and together with the characters’ illustrations found their special spots in the form of canvases on the walls of the restaurant.
There is also a tearoom in the Samurai Japanese Cuisine used for tea ceremonies for which the team of designers created a beautiful illustration inspired by the famous print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” by the Japanese artist Hokusai. The same illustration was used to create a packaging design of tea containers to be placed in the tearoom.
Being unbelievable fans of sushi, our team knew the importance of impressing customers with unique product packaging. So they designed a special delivery box that contains sushi and rolls, chopsticks, wasabi, gari and soy sauce – a true paradise for sushi lovers.
On other printed materials such as the menu or the business card a fish squama has been used as another design element of the brands visual identity.

Reconciliation reflects on the connection between atrocities past and present. Through the careful arrangement of iconic imagery, the project confronts head on the contemporary overexposure and indifference to conflict and brutality. By exposing lessons unlearned the project looks unflinchingly at the fallibility of humankind and asks what morality is in today’s society.
The digital edition of Reconciliation created specially for Sedition, derives from a sculpture inspired by two seemingly divergent yet iconic historical milestones: the Holocaust and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Elliot positions two outstretched arms starkly against a backdrop, which fades in and out of recognisable natural surfaces, from moss to pebbles to coals.
