“Brass channels the bureaucratic and administrative into a subterranean hide-away, housed in a historic Police station.

“Metallic ink, official seals and document stamps send the message that the top brass expect protocol to be followed, even after they knock off. Menu backs appropriate the material and aesthetic of etched plastic municipal signage. The naming and copywriting imbue the project with a firm sense of place, celebrating Somerville and its proud ‘Villens’.”
