First Thursday Curry Club identity

Close

Overview

The First Thursday Curry Club (FTCC) is a rapidly expanding, international series of regular invitation-only events.  In multiple cities, monthly gatherings at bars are followed by casual prix fixe dining at an Indian, Nepalese, Pakistani or Sri Lankan curry restaurant. The executive, entrepreneur and expatriate attendees, experience a great camaraderie.

The initiative of a dynamic New Zealand businessman, the FTCC is preparing to expand the concept globally.

Digital Tsunami was commissioned to produce a powerful, unique and evocative identity. A logo was developed by a European designer, who is a former McCann Erickson Creative Director. His rationale:

The mark of the First Thursday Curry Club is an elephant holding a curry leaf, portraying the social aspect of the curry club. Elephants are very social creatures as they travel in herds. The fact that the elephant is elevated, shows the status that curry club members hold in society, while the building represents both the origins of the curry and also a meeting place“.

Our take-away menu advertised TamarindThai.com.au, even though the site didn’t exist.

Digital Tsunami offered great ideas and design to set up a professional website that matches our name, ideas and style of the restaurant.

Andrew is very knowledgeable IT professional and he never hesitated to see and consult us in the restaurant.

I worked with Andrew on a photography project that involved a high level of visual complexity for a multinational client. Andrew was clear and professional in his briefing, but at the same time, was open to other ideas and approaches.

Andrew and his team have supported Foodbank by providing web services for more than a decade.

In fact, they have just undertaken the first complete redevelopment of the original Foodbank website they built for us, and have been maintaining so ably since.

Andrew is creative and passionate and helps us to keep up, constantly looking for new ways to add value and improve our online communications channels.
