Charlie Awards
Event Branding

Charlie's Cafe Exceptionale is a classic supper club establishment in Minneapolis that hosts a black tie awards show, honoring the best in the local food and drink industry. The show identity was inspired by the original Charlie's logo, and in appropriate culinary form, was deconstructed and reconstructed with a modern twist. The strong stripe graphic was painted over a table full of raw materials as well as the winners themselves.
