Red Monkey is a contemporary Japanese lounge, dining and private karaoke bar in Clapham, south London. Tamassy was commissioned to do the whole branding of the venue and we designed the logo, sign, original posters, food and drink menus, business cards and a digital wallpaper for the interior.
We came up with the idea of featuring Japanese 60s and 70s style designs especially influenced by the films and music of that era. The owner’s intention to avoid the “over-oriental” or “over-typical” Japanese designs was successfully implemented into the branding thanks for the “real” Japanese designers’ input.
We also designed and developed the funky website with full content management system.
The venue was launched in March 2010 and it has soon become one of the popular bars in Clapham.
