The
Challenge

Black & Blue Steak & Crab is an upscale restaurant chain spanning from New York (Buffalo, Rochester, and Albany) to Massachusetts (Amherst). With a menu focused on aged beef and shellfish, the company has succeeded as a top choice for seafood lovers.

From a chic interior and exterior, UCO needed to develop and design a multi-site website as well as create brand assets to best represent each location - all while remaining consistent and cohesive to its physical form.

To enhance the brand, we took a variety of candid and food photography shots with the ability to include on any and all integrated marketing communications.

All in all, it was important for us to represent the B&B essence, which is one of chicness, class, and elegance from presentation to atmosphere.
