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.

This contemporary interior and the dual nature of Tamarindo’s space is distilled down into its visual identity designed by Mexican studio La Tortillería and extends across a variety of collateral including business cards, stationery, packaging, menus, coasters, tote bags and custom glass bottles.

Miinus designed by Bond

Logotype and business cards designed by Bond for Puustilli's new reductionist kitchen Miinus

Miinus is kitchen created by Finnish furniture manufacture Puustelli. As the name suggests, Miinus was developed around the philosophy of reduction, the process of removing superfluous elements to leave only the minimum, most functional aspects intact. Helsinki based design studio Bond where commissioned by Puustelli to develop a brand identity for the kitchen that would extend across stationery, print, retail and exhibition spaces. By utilising uncoated and unbleached materials, an ink economy, a bold fact based typographic and iconographic approach alongside a more personal hand written script and photography, Bond’s solution effectively conveys the themes of robustness, lifestyle, high quality, natural material use and functionality with a communicative precision.
