The Railway Hotel is a historical pub located in Yarraville and built in 1938. The new owners of the Pub had commissioned a major renovation and interior design by Bloom Interior design. As part of the project we were engaged to design and advise on the graphic identity and logo.

Forde + Nicol began by researching the history of the pub and with the help of the Footscray Historical Society we found some great archival images from around the time the hotel was built. The original art deco signage informed the new logo design and one of the images we sourced was used to create a feature wall inside the pub. The new identity acknowledged the rich heritage the pub held whilst updating and making it relevant to a new generation of patrons.
