LOS PALMAS BISTRO

Los Palmas, located in the west end of downtown Hamilton is a Bistro with dishes inspired by Mediterranean cooking. A brother duo from Lebanon decided to open up Los Palmas to share their love of home cooked traditional dishes with a flare of Canadian Bistro classics. From hand crafted hot beverages, to grilled paninis, wraps, pizza and fresh salads, Los Palmas has a little something for everyone catering especially to the businesses in the area. With great opportunities in a busy office building, they came to us to create their brand and bring it to life across multiple platforms.

STRATEGY

After meeting with Sam and Hasshem and listening to their story, we provided our guidance and expertise in the development and execution of their new brand, which was inspired primarily by a fresh healthy breakfast and lunch options.

ELEMENTS

Identity: Fresh, sophisticated and healthy are important elements that we wanted to communicate through Los Palmas’ branding. These elements helped us drive their logo and creation of their menu. Looking into their niche market we created a distinct look and feel that was memorable and eye catching. Dark rich wood with the vibrant fresh green as their brand colour paired with custom typography and a sleek and modern sans-serif ties together their menu, website and over all look and feel.

Print: Knowing that Los Palmas was replacing a previous coffee shop in an office building, we wanted to create excitement and differentiate them from their predecessor. We created lobby signs, window clings, A Frames for pedestrians, and of course their menus.

Web: A simple and user-friendly website for customers to quickly take a look at their specials, menu and location was critical for the restaurant’s success. We opted for a simple responsive design to ensure web presence and make it easy for customers to locate the bistro and call ahead to order.
