Tandoori Hut gets boost from Edinboro’s Beehive

Tandoori HutA popular Erie restaurant has received a big promotional boost from Edinboro University’s Center for Branding and Strategic Communication.

Faculty and students at the center led Tandoori Hut and owner Dharma Gurung through a full rebranding that included development of a new logo and collateral branding materials as well as a revamp of social media platforms. The restaurant, which specializes in authentic Indian cuisine, has relocated to 2605 Washington Avenue after departing its former North Park Row location.

Several students in art professor Cass Reese’s Design Practicum class met with Gurung throughout the fall semester and ultimately developed a new logo, business cards and a redesigned menu that includes more than 100 different food items. Design students Katelyn Whitman, Hannah Florentine and Hannah Flynn – along with faculty member Scott Gladd – developed their logo design using a font that resembled Nepali writing and the authentic shape of a tandoor oven that is commonly used for cooking Indian cuisine.

Professor Chris Lantinen and student Julia Carden set up a new restaurant Facebook page and renamed and reestablished the restaurant’s Instagram page, also putting together several posts to get the social media accounts up and running. Tandoori Hut has quickly picked up more than 100 followers on each platform. Read more.
