Ooh La La! La Latina

It's not every day that one of your best friends opens a cafe. It's one of those dreams I have, that all my friends have groovy bars and delicious cafes that I can just hang out at. Well I've got ONE now.

Cristina and her business partner Bel have opened La Latina Providores an authentic tapas cafe (and catering). They're based at the Subiaco Markets, Perth.
And it's REAL tapas, affordable and home-style. It's the kind you'd find in a Spanish bar.

And the reason I'm blogging about it is... I did the logo!

Cristina had visions of nouveau and a mature feminity (La Latina means The Latin Woman). I love that Cristina said "I just get her" and she is thrilled with the design. I like that statement because a designer's job is to GET you, no matter how different you are to them, in this case Cris and I think alike but I like to morph myself to think like the client and put them into the design as it's not about me is it?

I like seeing a design of mine utilised in dozens of ways.

And the cutesy loyalty card still brings me joy.

Hi, I was at the Kawana Arts Centre tonight and heard you say that your comments on your blog had dropped recently - so here is a comment. Also, I was interested in the ABC OPEN Artist by Artist project and was considering sending in an EOI - so I will get to that tomorrow.

Blogs are interesting - you get a glimpse into another persons world. I now remember where I saw you - it was in the Hinterland Times article about moving to the Sunshine Coast.

All the best

How exciting! Sounds delicious too...
Great logo and it sounds like you absolutely nailed it! Suits the people and the place

p.s. Do you know.. My partner and I still sing your double adaptor song ALL the time, in fact whenever we need a double adaptor and sometimes other times too - it's an ear worm!! ;D
