In order to differentiate ourselves from the rest of the restaurants and bring an artistic and unique touch to the place, they commissioned some illustration pieces for 5 panels on the ceiling. The idea was to represent the Mexican culture in them without falling into very commercial issues but at the same time recognizable to everyone. We came up with the idea of using pop icons of the Mexican culture and the Aztec gods but taken out of context and transporting them to the 21st century with the new fashions and trends. In that way we wanted to maintain the tradition but on the other hand take a step towards the future.
We have created some very colorful and visual compositions, after performing an exhasative study to endow them with various characteristics of each character. The idea is that each panel can be seen from any perspective of the restaurant that’s why the position of the elements.
The final result was a work that represented the character on a personal and professional level. It was essential to work together with the entire production team to be all aligned in the same direction and create this casual but at the same time minimalist design.
