Sur La Mer is a French-inspired cafe based in Istanbul – Turkiye.
The name “Sur La Mer” is French for “By the Sea”, which highlights the best characteristic of Istanbul where everywhere you go you end up by the sea.
The illustrations were made to evoke a sense of french elegance and leisure, with a Turkish influence, showing traditional Turkish icons such as the tea cup and the simit, while maintaining the french flag colors throughout.




The illustration style is minimal yet dynamic, and the colors used reflect the French influence.

Note: The logo was made by another designer, the illustrations and brand applications were made by Arwa Ramadan
