Bleu Bar Logotype, The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul

Bleu Bar Logotype, The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul

Almost 500 years of Ottoman rule have left a highly visible mark on Istanbul’s skyline. Dotted with slender minarets the view can be enjoyed from the terrace of the Ritz-Carlton’s Bleu Bar. It is also reflected in the bar’s logotype.

Elongating the ascenders elevates what started out as a plain bit of typography to its instantly recognisable 'signature' status.
