Los Italianos is a traditional Italian food producer and retailer with three locations across Barcelona but with its roots in the Piemonte region of Italy and a significant history that dates back to 1939. Los Italianos recently commissioned Spanish design studio Huaman to develop a new brand identity that would better position them within the gourmet category, introduce an elegance and modernity whilst retaining a sense of heritage. This was achieved through the simple leveraging of familiar, high quality and traditional design cues of a script, shield and foil, and fusing these with the contemporary distinction of bold geometric shapes informed by the diversity of Italian pastas. These were applied to business cards, packaging and signage.
