Tamarindo designed by La Tortillería

Logo and business cards designed by La Tortillería for Spanish kitchen and bar Tamarindo

Tamarindo is a kitchen and bar with an international menu due to open in October 2014. Located in Ourense, Spain, Tamarindo was created as a refreshing alternative for local walkers who are used to traditional bars and restaurants, and is described as a place with two distinct moods and spaces, the casa cocina or house/kitchen, a place for coffee and a quick snack, and a bar for beer and tapas. The interior, created by architects and husband and wife team Ruben D. Gil and Gretta R. Valdés, features a combination of light wood ceilings, adobe walls, dim lighting and steel furniture.

The project scope included uniforms, menu, interior design, animated logo, signage and wayfinding.
