TOP CHEF: HOUSTON – Graphics Package

Your time starts now. Top Chef Season 19 is set in Houston, and our clients at Bravo wanted for a design package that reflected the vibrant multi-cultural food scene that thrives in that city. This design package is inspired by the famous cultural night markets in Houston, and envisions the TOP CHEF logo as a neon sign mounted to a brick building above the market.

We constructed the scene in CG, complete with the peaked roofs of market tents, metal balconies, glowing amber string lights, and smoke and embers from the grills below floating through the air. The graphic extruded typography is inspired by the iconic mural of Houston, where local-centric icons like astronauts and space shuttles are surrounded by swirls of pastel color.
