Public is a table service bar in what was once a public bathroom built in 1896 alongside Sheffield Town Hall. The Public logotype was lifted — as an archeological artefact — from the logbook scribblings of a semi-literate bathroom attendant. The letterforms were disassembled to create a playful visual language that would maintain the lyric without the persistence of a singular logo. This was paired with the typeface Maison, its utilitarian nature a contrast to the more gregarious lyric of the lead branding.

Public won Best Place to Drink in the Observer Food Monthly Awards 2018.
