Another Serving of Asparagus!

The Chicago Design Archive will include the Asparagus logo designed by Richard Zeid, ADD'04.

In October 2002 The Society of Typographic Arts celebrated its seventy-fifth anniversary with three exhibitions: "Fifty Years of Graphic Design in Chicago 1927-1977", "Fifty Years of Chicago Graphic Design (1941-1991)", and "Seventy-five Years of Graphic Design in Chicago." The 800-plus images that form the nucleus of the Chicago Design Archive preserve the historical survey of graphic design examples curated for those exhibitions.

The STA updates this Archive annually with new material from Chicago designers through its Archive Show, the annual competition developed to recognize outstanding achievement in Chicago graphic design.

American Graphic Design Award given to Richard Zeid, ADD Class of '04, for logo design

Asparagus' logo, designed by Richard Zeid Design, received an American Graphic Design Award given by Graphic Design:USA.

After more than three decades of holding this competition, a remarkable 10,000+ media diverse entries nationwide were submitted this year. The chosen pieces, and their creators, represent the best and brightest in graphic design today.

Asparagus is a newly opened restaurant in Northwest Indiana serving a blend of dishes from Viet Nam, Thailand, France, and the Americas. The name refers to the vegetable’s role in each of the cuisines featured on the restaurant’s uniquely blended menu.

About the design: Creating a formal mark using the asparagus was the centerpiece of the logo. Finding a complimentary and
modern type treatment was key in expressing the blend of classic and modern seen throughout the restaurant and even the menu.

Richard Zeid, ADD '04, has logo published in upcoming book

Earth First Farms logo, designed by Richard Zeid Design, picked for inclusion in the Big Book of Logos 5.

Earth First Farms is an organic apple orchard growing seven varieties of apples on 45 acres of rolling land in southwest Michigan.

The apple was a natural choice for use in the logo, but rather than using a picture perfect apple that corporate growers typically use, an organic “less than perfect” one was created and paired up with traditional typography.

This annually best-selling book showcases effective logo design from around the world. the variety of styles and techniques on display cover the complete creative spectrum and provides endless inspiration for graphic designers in the critical ‘idea-generating’ phase.
