Garito Café, the mythical café / restaurant / club, located in Dàrsena de Can Barbara of the Paseo Marítimo of Palma de Mallorca opened its doors in 1978. It has rained a lot ever since. In 1998 a new direction headed by Nacho Velasco made a 180 turn, turning it into a bar restaurant and club known internationally where the greatest DJs in the world meet up such as : Pepe Badrock, Llorca, Alexkid, Jazzanova, Markus Enochson, Nigel Hayes, Teddy G, Mad Mats, James Welsh and a long etcetera prolonged to the infinite.
In this occasion, Nacho Velasco contacted Joan Chito and us to introduce a new graphic concept more linked to the vintage esthetic and retro of the mythical restaurant / café / club.
Firstly we redesigned the restaurant menu and the drinks menu, afterwards we created “El noticiario veloz”, an informative gazette in vintage newspaper format of all monthly news that occur there. Last, we prepared a spectacular illustrated blackboard and a set of advertising postcards with a very satisfying result.
Design: Joan Chito
