Entry Description

“We want customers to understand (the image) at the first glance, being simple and direct
would make more sense.” Positioned at a rapidly growing market, fast food corporations
often targeted at the younger generations. Designers deliberately used the most direct and
simple interpretation to demonstrate the image as innovative, apparent, and young.

Designers Four Lau & Sam Sum used “Home” as the core design element to build a “Chic
Home”, presenting the brand image as young, energetic, and warm. The shape of “House”
created a marker that makes the customers easily associated with the new image “Home”.
Yellow pillar structure, orange geometric triangle patterns, and levels of distinctive
colors have become the new image elements of Yoshinoya fast food chain. High malleability
and varied house-shaped design could link different areas and makes the spaces more
stereoscopic. The design of geometric triangles on the wall creates a diversity of design
styles, was inspired by Japanese origami. It makes the “Home” vivacious and creates a
relaxing and lively environment for dining.

Using giant Japanese chopsticks, Japanese wooden plate menus and Japanese roof tiles
became the feature of traditional homes and a variety of combination of diverse elements.
The design of traditional Japanese chopsticks and wooden plate menus created experimental
and playful design effects. This new emblem has to be simple and easy to understand, while
leaving a deep impression and high malleability, varied and interesting.
