The Aging Room

The Aging Room represents the ultimate expression of steak. Relic was originally brought on to create the logo for The Aging Room crew by Scott & Victor. We produced a color scheme and identity system that is both scalable and adaptable to the needs of the business.

As a B2B, The Aging Room works to create bespoke roomlettes for mid-high grade grocery stores and restaurants to lower the cost and expand the availability of premium dry-aged meats. These roomlettes are custom built to suit each business and function as both active dehumidifiers and as backlit display cases for the product. At least one wall is in the roomlette is lined with pink salt bricks.

We developed an active and angular type lockup. Its construction allows the complexity to be dialed up or down as needed to express extravagant, yet appropriate, decor. The logo we developed is inspired by the salt bricks used in the roomlettes. With a name like "The Aging Room" we felt that it made sense to play into visual symbolism that exemplifies tradition, craft, and a certain sense of secrecy.

Early on in the process, we were informed that there were ambitions to integrate a business to consumer (B2C) model. They envisioned creating a line of premium spices, cook and grillware, and other supplemental goods to support the consumer. As they've recently emerged from stealth, most of this material is built on the hopes and vision of what form the B2C model might take.
