Rua, Portuguese for “street”, is a tapas restaurant with live music tucked in a graffiti covered backstreet of Porto, Portugal.
Stumbling across this hidden gem was as much of a fluke as how we began the conversation of collaborating on a project. I had left behind some doodles on my dinner placemat as a token of gratitude for their hospitality and great food. A few days later, I had an Instagram DM (written in Portuguese) from Rua inquiring about design work.
The work in progress includes a logo redesign, expanded color palette, azulejos inspired patterns, and graffiti graphic assets.
