Mucho were recently commissioned by the proprietors of Barcelona based deli restaurant and all day cafe La Florentina to develop a new brand identity and graphic language which would extend across their interior, signage and printed collateral.

Based around an early version of Futura with an exaggerated dot motif to reflect the idea of “small ingredients spicing up the structure”, the logotype, typography, window decals and printed collateral – which utilise a single, economical fluorescent ink across white paper – offers a distinctive counterpoint to the detail of the interior and the quirky collages of vintage photography and ingredients designed to “link the food with the ironic character the client wanted”.

The result is a great example of visual identity being led by the most important, communicative and experiential aspect of the brand. Here the quality, character and detail of the environment sets the tone, is mirrored in part by the custom elements of the typography and its bright colour but given contrast through the use of plenty of space in print.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
