Design: Sam Talbot website

The website I designed for my friend, the very talented, Top Chef fan favorite, Sam Talbot, launched a few months ago! Please check it out, follow him on twitter and go and eat in his amazing new restaurant Imperial No.9 at the Mondrian Soho. I was brought on three-quarters of the way through the project to come up with a design that truly felt like the essence of Brand Sam. I was already working on Sam’s cookbook so we had a body of photography to pull from. Joe Termini and I shot most of the photos on the site. We had so many great images to choose from I decided to do a CHEF. slideshow on the homepage - snapshots into all the different sides of Sam's life. The background images are also on rotation. I also did a refresh of his logo and a little tagline graphic (cook nice.) that we’re using on the website, stationary, invites, and when he needs a logo for a step and repeat graphics etc.
