Another Avocado Sweets Design On The Telly

Our design for smash hit new restaurant Moto Pizza was broadcast to the nation over the weekend in ITV’s latest episode of The Only Way Is Essex. 

The long-running reality TV programme featured Moto as the venue for a first date between show regular James ‘Diags’ Bennewith and model Jodie Charles. 

The pair were seen enjoying a drink against the backdrop of the restaurant’s vibrant bar area, while their meddling friends looked on from the adjacent booth seating. 

Moto’s funky branding and interior provided a great visual backdrop for the well-known ITVBe programme, with a cameo appearance by none other than Moto co-owner Georgie Collins herself.

Opened in September this year, Moto has already proved incredibly popular in its home town of Chelmsford, Essex. The carefully constructed interior sets the scene for a seriously innovative pizza concept. 

Based on a Brazilian Rodízio, customers pay a fixed price while quality sourdough pizza is served by the slice until you have eaten enough. 

The Avocado Sweets interior combines pattern, colour and material to create a unique look and feel for this pioneering concept. A feature wall with a neon pink slogan sits alongside comfortable bench seating, geometric wallpaper and a Moroccan tiled floor. The pared back brand identity with playful ‘t’ motif is carried through the restaurant interior to convey the right sense of style and quality.

Moto’s reviews have been overwhelmingly positive as Chelmsford celebrates a move away from the chain restaurants that have dominated the town centre.
