Brand Identity for Trasfonda by MentaBranding identity of transfonda restaurant

Trasfonda is a restaurant that takes inspiration from traditional home recipes and fondas of Guadalajara. Using local and Mexican ingredients, Chef Paco Ruano, creates a menu that honours our authentic corn, the maíz criollo, reinterpreting everyday flavours into exquisite dishes with a hint of modern cantina, where everything is meant to be shared. A unique word mark was created, to resemble a certain Mexican Revolution influence, along with a set of handmade stamps that create a sense of tradition.“- Meg Miller

Within minutes of the product announcement, Nike’s hijab had morphed from a swath of high-tech fabric into a symbol of the empowerment of women and, simultaneously, their oppression.”- Elizabeth Segran

This project, the Museum Of International Brewmasters Art, locates in the center of Beijing, a ruin of classical Russian structural industrial building. It is an epitome of a Chinese old brand, Dragon Seal Red Wine, experienced the vicissitudes of times and finally retired cause by out of date.”
