Then we have to explain that this is the name of an emblematic dish of the city of Porto. Its origin is claimed by several restaurants in the city and we have no way to compare the various versions.

YOURS Brand Identity

And the idea behind the brand identity sprung in such a unique place that combines harmony of culture, respect and religiousness. To further add special concepts to the aforementioned ones and conciliating our idea of a business and delivery, and we added the following factors: sharing and the satisfaction to prepare something special for others. Finally, we spiced our project with the natural affection and hospitality that characterizes the Portuguese people. The spirit YOURS emerged. The idea was to build a Guesthouse, an atelier (shop) and a kind of a restaurant. Our goal is to personalize each guest holidays as much as possible. We needed a logo that could stamp the three elements by changing a small detail on the brand identity. To materialize our concept we envisioned the design of a trade image that translated this spirit, and thought of the Lotus Flower that symbolizes our principles. We then started to […]
