Adrian wanted to change the vibe of his warm, cosy, latino style bar to a bright, fun and beach-style one...
 
The first thing we did was re-paint the red interior with white to open up the space.
From there we had a fresh space and blank canvas - and the background I needed for the 'Permanent Vacation' piece.
Once that was complete, Adrian liked the feel so decided to keep the rest of the venue open. With the front, we decided to keep it down the lines of the inside, with keeping it all quite bold and bright. The palm tree's were referenced from those inside however painted much looser as we wanted to achieve a 'washed' out, 'rougher' feel -
something you'd find by a random beach bar in somewhere like Mexico.
 
Once the main facade was complete, we had a much better feel for the vibe - which gave us the direction we needed for the front. With the yellow being quite strong, we decided to keep the top signage quite simple so stood out on it's own but didn’t clash - which is why we opted for the clean black and white.

Once all the work onsite was done, was time to hit the studio and re-design the light-box, new menu’s and uniforms. Once that was done, was time for a few taco's and many margarita's! (Best Magarita's in Sydney BTW)
Super fun. Thanks again for everything Adrian.
