New Location Concept Shoot: PF Chang’s London

New Location Concept Shoot: PF Chang’s London

PF Changs has arrived in London! We recently worked with our long time friends at PF Chang’s Global to create a new photography aesthetic for the launch. The first location in Europe, the London location photography needed to represent co-founder Philip Chiang’s love of art, music and food. Shot in studio, the images provide both a look into the menu and its creation with a very hands on story telling approach. The results are beautiful with thoughtful attention to detail. Thank you to the PFC team, all the best in London! http://pfchangs.co.uk

A very cool fact – the location’s past includes a jazz club where the Beatles famously gave The Rolling Stones one of their hit singles, I Wanna Be Your Man.

The Tilted Kilt Menu Design Driven By Photography

The Tilted Kilt Menu Design Driven By Photography

Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery opened in 2003, reaching 83 locations across 23 US states and now Canada. Since 2005 we have collaborated with the TK team on a variety of food, lifestyle, architecture, motion and cinemagraph work.  The Tilted Kilt understands the value and relationship of strong imagery in conjunction with F&B development and continues to evolve new concepts and visual appeal in association with their menu photography. The studio has also had the pleasure of photographing the company’s new flagship location in Tempe Arizona whose imagery will serve both advertising and franchise development needs. Here’s the last Summer Menu in which the photography drove the menu layout design. Cheers to that!
