Illegal Burger

April 18, 2011 | 5 Comments

Designed by The Metric System | Illustrator: Frode Skaren | Country: Norway

“Illegal Burger is a tiny sit-in and take-out burger joint in Oslo, Norway. They serve high quality charcoal-grilled burgers at a low price. The restaurant is located in a space that used to be a no-licensed hole-in-the-wall bar, hence the name.

The Metric system design studio played played with classic visual fast food clichés: burgers and ingredients with faces, arms and feet and developed a series of food-crooks together with Illustrator Frode Skaren.

Materials used in the take-out packaging include brown paper bags and brown cardboard boxes to obtain the right lowbrow feel. The bags are printed with rubber stamps and boxed decorated with stickers. The wrapping paper is a four color PMS print with colors matching the tasty interior designed by Al Coulson.”

    Hamburglar copyright infringement? He wasn’t an actual hamburger dressed up as a crook like this one, but it this reminded me of him.

    Didn’t cross my mind, honestly. Remember, the characters of McDonaldland aren’t as well known in Norway as they are in the US
