“The Dons” is a visual identity project of restaurant that inspired by the Mafia and gangster culture. The goal was create a series of illustrations featuring iconic figures from these worlds, and depict their unique personalities and style.
Each illustration was done manually and then digitally, and features a different character from the Mafia or gangster genre. The characters range from the classic Godfather figure to the modern gangster, and each one has his own unique back story and personality.
Illustrations, layout & typography, visual identity details
The project was a collaboration between two artists, one who created the illustrations and the one who designed the layout and typography. The final result is a stunning series of illustrations that captures the spirit of the Mafia and gangster culture.
The project was well-received on Behance, with many users praising the high-quality illustrations and attention to detail. It is a great example proving how art and design can be used together to create something truly unique and inspiring.
The project also shows the power of visual storytelling, as each illustration tells a story about the character depicted.
Using color, composition, and typography would contribute to the overall narrative and help to create a cohesive series.
One of the outstanding features of “The Dons” project is the level of detail in each illustration. From clothing and accessories worn by each character, to the intricate patterns and textures in the background, each element has been carefully considered and executed with precision.
