The logo is based on the initials of Riad Kneife, to stress Riad’s business as a highly personal service. The logo is reminiscent of the monograms that artists leave as their signature on the objects they create.

Website

Each page has a unique full-window background image which submerges the viewer into the atmosphere of the markets. The written content is in only two colours — black and sepia, and these texts are placed in either white of black translucent boxes “above” the background image. Typefaces used are the classical Walbaum and the web-font Open-Sans. Taken together, these features give this website its distinctive look.

The website content, including a “News & Reviews” blog, is managed by the customer via a content management system. The content management system, with an images slideshow template, is being used to create also private (password protected) per-customer spaces.
