Amici Miei, an Italian trattoria concept rooted in the spirit of cheeky classic movies, originated in Milan. We spearheaded the rebranding of this restaurant, transforming it into a home away from home, with a spotlight on the essence of sharing, love, and the joyful facets of comforting Italian cuisine. Our visual approach seamlessly blends the old and the new, employing classic colors and striking iconography to breathe vibrant life into this retro trattoria.


Elder Square is not just a day center; it's a dynamic hub tailored for active senior citizens. Here, they can dive into physical activities, join engaging workshops, and have medical consultations. Think of it as a modern twist on senior care, aimed at ensuring seniors live their best and most joyful lives. Beyond that, it's a space for them to network, meet others, and relish their free time—creating a vibrant community where every moment is filled with connection and enjoyment.

Chai Gully prides themselves on sticking to traditional methods of making and serving chai, as well as giving their audience an authentic desi experience.

In the summer of 2023 the Umami team was commissioned to create the corporate identity for a new hospitality consultancy group called Against All Odds.

Changing the game is hard, and it is usually

Against All Odds!
