Chef Tim Longden was eager to bring what he had learned from authentic Jamaican cuisine over to the UK and introduce West Yorkshire to proper moreish yard food.
For this project the client wanted the brand identity to embrace and celebrate Jamaican culture, paying homage to fresh island ingredients, traditional cooking methods, and cultural design touch points. To understand the core values we spent time with the client…
learning about these individual elements.

For Soul Shack we used reclaimed driftwood, oil drums and used zinc roofing as a large part of the brand identity. These experiential factors—burning pimento wood under a hot zinc roof, fresh herbs in tin cans—reinforced the realities of the island-style social eating culture that Longden enjoyed cooking for.
Soul Shack asked us to create and roll out a full social media pack including IG story posts, event invites, as well as custom posters, menu boards and exterior signage. Video has allowed us to capture the full visual experience of Longden’s intricate culinary skills and share it with his growing network. Our confident filmmaking aesthetic and intricate use of storytelling lets us weave the personal with the professional, the magical with the awe-inspiring.
