Issho is a Japanese restaurant based in England, in Leeds to be more accurate. In Japanese, the name of the place means “Togetherness”, a quite appropriate name for a place that bring people together.

For their branding, the restaurant owners called Dutchscot, a London-based design consultancy. The designers opted for a concept based on the traditional Japanese art of Kintsugi, which is the art or repairing broken items with gold joints.
