A unforgettable beach breeze.

Café Farol — A project that made me come back to my first years as a designer. It was my first attempt at branding.
One of the goals of this rebrand was to keep the brand’s icon, a lighthouse, but at the same time change its image to a more modern and current. It is a rebrand that I did for one of the most known coffee & lounge bars that has its delicacies based in Ílhavo, Aveiro, “Café Farol”. Known for years, it is a “must-go” when you’re visiting Barra Beach, in Ílhavo.

The feeling of that traditional coffee near the beach.

Since when I was a young little boy my parents used to take me to this coffee to grab a ice cream during summer so I always had a personal connection with the place. Knowing that it is the perfect option to grab a coffee, a cocktail or even a tea when you’re in vacation, I decided to give it a go on a rebranding of the identity of the place.


Perfect place for a relax moment.

Café Farol provides lots of things to do as they have an inside zone and an outside zone. Inside you’ve got a games room with billiards, flippers and so on. Outside you’ve got the biggest European lighthouse as a view and lots of movement as there are constantly families walking around the beach. The service is great as their waiters are amazing people, interacting with you a lot and making you feel at home.
