Noble Sandwich Co.

If you want the best sandwich in Austin, go to Noble Sandwich Co. Hands down.

We worked with John and his team on designing their Burnet Road location. Back in the 1940s, the space was a grocery store, which was fitting for their philosophy of "from-scratch" cooking. We stripped it down to showcase original features like antique flooring (which we patched in places with metal), exposed wooden ceiling, and a faded Dr. Pepper ad on the front facade.

Most features at Noble are custom-made, many of them using reclaimed materials. We designed lights based on early sign lights we saw in small Texas towns. Stools were built from old decking material that was ripped off the back of the building when they had to replace the patio. We illustrated patron pigs for each community table. We worked with Barrett Fry on brand identity, including old canned good packaging named after each of our patron pigs. All of the signs were hand-painted, including the one on the patio that advertises "Complimentary Fresh Air - Locally Sourced"  and the one as you leave the bathroom that says, "XYZ."

A little tongue in cheek action for your tongue and cheek action.
