We were asked to re-brand The Compton Arms. A public house that has been situated on the Islington backstreet, Compton Avenue since the mid 16th Century.
The logotype was created after we discovered an old engraved brass plaque during the renovation stages. After a clean, we scanned and traced the typography in order to create a bespoke logo that we feel carries unique character and charm.
The owners Nick and Hannah were very keen to pay homage to the pubs history and represent that within the new coat of arms:
‘The Compton Arms is more famously known as one of former patron George Orwell’s three Canonbury pubs, chosen as inspiration for his perfect watering hole essay, The Moon Under Water. Our tribute to the great man is a feature on our coat of arms, along with legendary local Arsenal and England Cricket siblings, Denis & Lesley Compton.’
Lastly the juniper berries are to symbolise the new owners passion for gin.
