BARδON is a cocktail bar in my city, Larissa. The inspiration for the logo — characterised as architectural — came from the bar’s roof. The curves that appear in the logo soften the austerity of the roof-sign, creating a balanced effect.
The circles in the logo come from the decorative bar lighting, a composition of round bulbs.
The typeface comes from YouWorkForThem and proved a perfect match for the project. The logo plays its role by being used repeatedly and creates a decorative motif on the cards, the napkins, the menu, and outside signage.
The sign was made of oxidised tin. In fact, it is a box with the logo cut out on its surface with hidden LED lighting on the inside. There are decorative elements both on the floor and elsewhere in the bar that were made through oxidisation, so it’s cohesive with the bar’s style.
Project completion took 35 days. It was handed in on December 5th 2013 and BARδON opened its doors to the public on December 10th.
