Locally Rooted

The Common Good name was derived from two sources of inspiration. “The Commons” relates to a community at large working for the common good of all. And the use of “good” conveys the concept of good food made from good ingredients in a simple, wholesome manner.

While the brand embraces global influences, The Common Good is locally rooted. Illustrated on the logo is a sprig of oregano, which symbolizes “joy of the mountains” in Greek. Joy among the Rocky Mountains is what communal gathering is all about. Coupled with this imagery is typography that complements the softness of the line-work and gives a sense of luxury and elegance.

Color Inspiration

The color palette gained inspiration from the same places its kitchen had: local natural offerings. The Colorado skies and land make up the base of the visual identity, while the secondary and tertiary colors account for Aurora’s full spectrum of beautiful sunsets and snowfalls.
