Working on a logo for a Palestinian Restaurant in Oslo.
Feels like it's getting somewhere, but the arabic lettering at the bottom was a requirement that sort of messes with the dynamic on this one, in my opinion. So I would gladly like to get some feedback.
(The established year is made up. Was a last detail I threw on there and I wasn't certain of the exact year, heh.)

Hey Emir, time to return the ball :) The only thing that bothers me a bit is the humongous space at the HAB part. The BIBI is so much more consistent and this super simple sans works there great, but those spaces around HAB throw it off asking for a different approach IMO. Banner is cool, 'established' position could be above the fire symbol circle which would directly balance the section with the Arabic. Whutcha think bruva? :)
Really like the overall feel so far! I quite like Alen's suggestion about the established year, although there's something really original and pleasing about where it is now. My feeling would to be to try to take advantage of the arabic lettering requirement and try to include it better in the design. I really like the graphic with the flame in the circle, but its size combined with the lettering underneath makes it all seem a little busy. Maybe their positioning and size could be switched - that way, the lettering would look more included and the graphic would help to 'close up' the design.
Just a thought though - I have no idea if that makes sense or would even work!
that little kebab is such a cute little thing lol. Yeah, agree on the letter spacing to the left.
@Alen, Claire & Alex - Thank you guys so much for your input!
I'm just wondering if you're referring to the kerning on the "A" in "HABIBI" or if you're talking about the distance between "HABIBI" and the banner?
Alen, yes, I actually tried the 'Established' position above the flame, but it just felt cluttered and the sides of the banner felt very naked, so I moved it out on the sides and that gave it a better balance.
But still, just like you said Claire, it does seem like there's too much going on and the arabic lettering really needs to be integrated in a better way to make it solid.
I will keep working on it and keep posting updates!
Thank you so much again guys.
I was talking about spaces between HA and AB (those huge black triangles). I also like Claire's idea of bringing something of the Arabic feel to the HABIBI lettering, maybe a play on some interesting serifs or sumtn.
Love the overall look of the logo!
In regards to the Arabic writing... Have you tried removing the flame above and placing the writing inside the "kabab" somehow? Or maybe remove it all together and add some sort of element that comes out from behind the ribbon and place the Arabic text there?
Also, the Arabic text seems too "extended" in comparison to the English above.
Awesome! And the name is hilarious. The Arabic typeface doesn't seem to be consistent with the Latin, a bit too traditional.
WOW!!! I AM REALLY REALLY IMPRESSED!!!!
@Alen - Thank you. Yes, I see what you mean. Have a predicament there with the triangle spacing. Gotta sort it somehow.
@Qusai - You gave me an idea there. Might try out an extra ribbon and see how that works. Thank you!
@Ghaida - Thanks! If you know any nice Arabic type, please let me know. Haven't found any that I really like. Also, I think you gotta tell me how to spell that so I can retype it (got that one in EPS), because I actually don't speak arabic, heh.
@Nick - Cheers buddy!
Really loving this!!!! Great work man!!!!
Emir, diggin' it bro. Feel like maybe the tini text at bottom could play out more in the main text style-wise..? does that make any sense. love the texture and digg the mark.
also is established est.? not etb? i really have no idea...I can barely read myself. I like it in there tho. adds to the authenticity of the place.
@Yossi - Thanks man. Too kind :)
@Mike - Thanks buddy. Yeah, makes total sense man, haha. I'm trying to find a something like that atm.
Oh, and yes! "Etb" is the norwegian shortening for Established (Etablert).
Emir, the works of yours are fenomenal!
@Antonio - Thanks dude. Always too kind! Appreciate it!

Had another crack at this one.
Trying out some custom type for the titling. Messed around with the banner a bit and tried to piece the elements together a bit more tidy and collected.
All sorts of feedback appreciated.
