Fresco Bistro Italiano

Opened in 1991 and taken over by brothers Jim and Matt Bickford in 2005, Fresco Bistro has been a staple on Ottawa’s Elgin Street for almost 25 years, and has since established a second Kanata location, opened in 2013.

After taking ownership, Jim and Matt tasked us with updating the identity of the restaurant and transforming the visual brand of all its collateral–from menus to advertising to signage–to reflect a more modern and progressive aesthetic, and to cater to long-time Fresco supporters and new urban customers alike.

At the time we started working with nineSixteen, we had no consistency with marketing initiatives and lacked any organized systems for achieving our marketing goals. Since that time, nineSixteen has handled all of our collateral and print marketing needs, and provides us with peace of mind, always knowing that we are getting excellent creative work that is consistent with our brand. Having nineSixteen in our corner has made all the difference and I would recommend their services to anyone looking to improve their current marketing position.
