During the process of logo design, I already had in mind the shape and style for the perfect sign for The Gardens hotel: a solid stainless steel structure covered by stainless steel sheets of 3mm with the logo cutted out with plasma technology. The backlit is realized with 6 Neon fluorescent light behind a green acrylic sheet. George Brown and all the team loved it once I showed them the project and in 3 weeks of welding, handmade satin finish, wiring and assembling I was able to deliver another amazing and visible sign. I entire dedicate this project to my dad that was the first person that introduce me in the world of building with metal since I was a kid.

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 Michelle Berk and Mike Tailor asked me to give relevance to their new place in Playa Guiones I wanted to work on the idea of the logo starting from the concept of the movie The Endless Summer. Silhouette of the kids in front of the sun and a 70's script with yellow and orange colors was the solution. Wood signs took shape in two different proportions, square and rectangular. We also build a beautiful A-frame chalkboard with two mini wood signs on top to announce daily specials of the delicatessen. Super details and a lot of love for this amazing project.

Tibidabo is a mountain overlooking Barcelona, Spain. At 512 metres (1,680 ft), it is the tallest mountain in the Serra de Collserola. Rising sharply to the north-west, it affords spectacular views over the city and the surrounding coastline.
This was the brief for the logo design that Luis Velasco, owner of the mediterranean food restaurant, asked me. Tibidabo is the place where he borned. Design the skyline from Tibidabo was exciting and the right idea to explane in graphic the essence of this word. Tapas, sangria and paella now are part of Playa guiones nights.

The project for Il Basilico took me a month of details on a big piece of pochote wood. I started redesigning the logo to give a little bit of italian way with colors and putting two little basilico leafs. Chandy asked me a double side wood sign for his Italian restaurant in Playa Guiones to give it more visibility and value. I’m starving now, I need a pizza.

Work for Nick Fairman, Go juice in Playa Guiones – Nosara, was really nice. He asked me to redesign the logo keeping the original colors, blu, white and orange. I change the lettering for “juice” with a cool hand script font doing some change in the vectors.
The choice of cedar was to have a nice and durable wood for the double side sign. The shape remind us a big pill used to give energy with vitamin, that we found in every juice or smoothie that Nick prepare every day with fresh and organic fruit and vegetable.
Once you are in Playa Guiones you have to stop for a refreshing or power juice for your healthy day!
