OUR

STORY

BRAND REFRESH

REFOCUSING A CREATIVE BRAND FOR A NEW ERA

Taking inspiration from the Blue Heron, the TBA logo is a signifier of our core value pillars (Tradition, People, Expression and Versatility) while bringing in the storytelling aesthetics (Timelessness, Nature, and Performance) of our mission and programming. Without being overly nature-focused, we pay homage to our surrounding area and incorporated neon elements from classic and communal diner motifs - inspiring tradition and timelessness with a modern edge. Ultimately, our goal is to bring together the refreshed design aesthetic and brand experience to our revered patrons and newcomers alike.
