Creating a unique bar and packaging design that blends Blackened, Whiskey, Metallica, and celebrity chef Chris Santos.

In 2023, we were asked to design the Blackened Bar that would be a part of all Danny Whimmer events like Sonic Temple, Rockville, and more. Then in 2024,, because of the success of the bar in 2023, we were asked to add a new Burger Bar that was to be created by celebrity chef Chris Santos, and design the entire meal packaging that would go with his food. How could you not have a blast when you are asked to a Happy Meal for Metallica?!?

FOR THIS PROJECT WE PROVIDED:
  • • Creative direction
  • • Visual design
  • • Experience and interior design
  • • Packaging design

Festival tent and bar design

We were asked to the 2023 and 2204 Blackened and Metallica bar and burger bar that traveling to multiple music festival and events each year. We wanted to create something that was simple, graphic, and would stand out among the chaos of a festival like Rockville or Sonic Temple.

Menus and signage

Did you ever wonder it would look like if Metallica designed a Happy Meal? Well we got to figure it out designing the Black Box Meal with a meal box, burger box, burger wrapper, fry box and prize inside. We wanted to create something that would be a beacon thought the festival where people would see the design, and want to know where to get it, keep it and maybe put it up on eBay.

Artwork by Andrew Cremean

We once again collaborated with illustrator Andrew Cremean, who regularly creates work for Metallica, to create a one of a kind illustration that highlighted, Metallica, Blackened, and referenced Chris Santo's Snake Bite BBQ sauce.

A huge impact on the bottom line and on social media
