Tommy Tsunami’s

Tommy Tsunami’s was an urban sushi restaurant in Denver's historic Larimer Square where the vibe of a funky Tokyo hotspot meets the laidback amusement of a local surf shack.

ArtHouse Design played a pivotal role in the development of this iconic restaurant, creating the comprehensive sign plan for the site, as well as designing the logo, brand identity, menus and print collateral, décor, environmental graphics, and interior and exterior signage. Taking inspiration from Japanese and surf culture, as well as west coast design cues, ArtHouse was able to capture the vibrant, lively essence of this cheeky Asian-fusion restaurant.

Using neon to create custom décor elements and incorporating features like surfboards protruding from the walls, a motorcycle mounted over the bar and Japanese prints, ArtHouse developed a high-energy environment that borrows from the feel of the movie Tokyo Drifter and a San Francisco nightclub. With an emphasis on placemaking, Tommy Tsunami’s received an extensive, multimedia implementation of the spirited, exciting brand that ArtHouse developed.
