Derick Holt: From Dishwasher to Designer
2 of 17
Diner is housed in a 1920’s dining car located next to the Williamsburg bridge in Brooklyn. I’ve put together many postcards over the years using vintage photos of the bridge which has become an icon for the restaurant. The rounded ceiling and tight interior of the Pullman dining car gives the feeling of an upturned ship or the belly of a whale, combined with it’s proximity to the Navy Yard and East River I’ve used nautical themes for many of the graphics. I didn’t design the original menu graphics. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to redesign them, but have always felt they’re a good fit...If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
