Each format has its’ own particular operational requirements and requires design treatment sympathetic to the needs of the particular market. DK Design has an in depth understanding of the market positioning of restaurants - getting the right brand values, atmosphere, operational format and design values to suit the site and market.
CAFES & BARS -
Designing for the biggest lifestyle trend development of the Nineties - Cafes & Bars. The emergence of the ‘Third Place’ concept led to a demand for designs which were neither too formal and which were not beer-swilling, male only bastions like many pub chains had become. The Café-Bar, Gastro pub and Coffee chains resulted from this brief and continue to spread across the UK. Local independent operators now have a need to raise their game to compete with the emerging giants of the coffee world.
BRAND DEVELOPMENT -
In any business, the core brand values need to change and evolve - to maintain their relevance to the public. The brand is a dynamic concept and needs constant inputs - like the metaphor of a growing organism it needs attention; feeding, nourishment, occasional pruning, trimming and training to get it to grow and flourish in the best way. New Product Development involves the creation of a concept or brand re-engineering and positioning/re-launching of that product in the commercial marketplace.
