Yes Please is a bar for not-so-party people who are really just looking for a place to chill.
We based the logo lock up on a magic eight ball, except that it should always say yes.
It can also be used as added wayfinding.
Precisely because the bar's name is "Yes Please", we didn't want it to follow the guidelines. Like when you look at the logo, other designers will definitely have something to nitpick. But we think that stays true to the message: sometimes the things you say yes to are not always the best decisions; the way to have a great night is to loosen up a little, because the music's finally at the *right* volume, and you can just *be*— no frills, no uncomfy shoes, no buzzwords, no bull.
When we ideated on Yes Please, the main direction was to create a space that makes you say YES. We wanted it to be a place to call home after a long day. What we kept saying was, "Yes Please is not a speakeasy, but it's a place where you can literally speak easily.
We just wanted to create an environment that makes you feel loosened up to make you just say yes to anything.
Creating is always exciting for us because we always push our team to creatively explore what hasn’t been done before. Our creative brief was YES, and we wanted this to flow throughout everything we did---from the posters, the murals, our short essays in the restroom, and even down to the wall of nodding bobble head dogs, which you'll see below.
Our whole team had a hand in creating art and fun things for Yes Please. We wanted to make people laugh with random puns and unexpected details, so there’s always something new to discover in the space every time you come back.
We designed the entire experience; what you see from the minute you get in the door, to how the rest of the space interacts with you as you drink and have fun.
The goal with this was to make a blank space into a happy place; to get people to say yes to coming back— again and again. Drop by and say yes at 38th St. Uptown, 11th Ave, Taguig, Metro Manila. Check their Instagram out.
