As a group our task was to select a cuisine of choice and restaurant name that would belong in a mall food court. Our group decided on BBQ food, then we chose the name Uncle Bob's BBQ. We then started to design individually, only to collaborate later and share our mock ups and then collaborate on a logo we could all agree upon and have a hand in creating.
