You should try to walk in this beautiful house in Las Huacas, Nosara Costa Rica and discover why in the logo there is a tree. That tree. When I met Charlotte De Rock and her family they asked me to value their house with a beautiful sign. First of all I wanted to work on a logo design for the house. When I step on the back yard, of course I was stunning about the ocean view but a tree, a big tree catch my attention. I though: Yes, that tree will be the recognizable part of the logo of Casa Fenomenal! Stainless steel on a pochote wood with teak structure was the idea of the sign. Modern and classic. I simply love how the sign came out!

When I met Eddie Delaney and his brother, they ask me an original logo for their house "Hermandad", in Playa Guiones. So.. 2 brothers, surfing in common, waves, here we go logo is made! A nice piece of Cedar wood did the rest. Carving wood on different levels was fun and exciting, I like modeling wood. Accurate painting on details et voilà, I'm in love of this sign! Thank you to all the family for the good vibe around!

Meeting Sophia Boedecker was very nice and productive. She ask me to design a logo for her property considering a new yoga deck and four houses.. all in a row. All project was thinked in 2 main entrance carved wood signs and teak structures, 1 garden carved wood sign and 5 small carved wood signs for the houses and the yoga duck, sorry deck. All pochote wood was designed originally and worked hard to have a brightness and cool image. If you'll see some ducks around playa Guiones you now know where they come from.

Meeting Kevin Doucet was nice and buena onda! He asked me to work on a simply sign that match the flow of his beautiful beach house in Playa Guiones, Costa Rica. I knew that only a nice logo on a stainless steel plaque was the answer of this request. The result is absolutely the goal of the idea that I had in advance.

When I first look at this 10 years old wood signs I was excited to start thinking how I could make them bright and beautiful as years ago. This was my real restore of wood signs. Pieces was missing, paint was with bubbles and wood was crack in different point. Replace the wood, sanding, recarving and repaint was an incredible success. Now every time I pass by Big Wave Daves I turn my eyes to check if the sign is still beauty as 10 years ago.

First time I met Henri Rainer – Casa Rosada, was in Olga’s having a beer. He asked me to design a logo for his new business in Playa Guiones: Casa Rosada, a nice place to stay close to the beach surround by nature. The logo showed up in my mind so quickly and was perfect for him that he asked me also to work on a wood sign. 3 weeks of labor makes me in love of this pochote wood sign. Remain one of my favorite.
