To help launch the new restaurant and bar RAY LEMON, design studio LSDK created a suite of branding and invite elements. The entire vibrant identity set feels both fresh and unique down to the origami invitations filled with spices and ingredients featured in their current menu.

BBQWar began as an idea by Ismael Burciaga while he was barbecuing one day and posting images via Twitter. A couple of Ismael’s friends also began tweeting tantalizing pictures of what they were grilling.

Several weeks later, the site ‘BBQWar’ was birthed.
