China Express

Branding & Illustration

China Express is a small restaurant in Muncie, Indiana. I designed them a food truck, a new identity design, and new to go boxes to coordinate with the updated logo design. The new logo is inspired by a lotus flower, a popular symbol in chinese culture. It is a pure white flower that grows out of mud, just as China Express produces good food out of a tiny, unassuming storefront. The boxes are designed like the traditionally shaped Chinese takeout boxes with wire handles, but they are branded to fit the new China Express identity. The design uses stickers as a cost effective solution to seal and brand the restaurant takeout boxes.
