Having handled communication design projects for Vila Vita Parc, for its inauguration in 1992 and since, we are very proud to have been invited to design the cover for their bumper 178-page 25th anniversary edition of V Life. The symbol of the logo inspired the design, and the contemporary but traditional way of being of Vila Vita Parc, was inspiration for the rest. The cover has 5 different production processes and was expertly carried out by the printer of Open Media, also publisher of the Essential magazines.
Mizu is Japanese for water. It is also the name for another brand new restaurant at Vila Vita Parc that has fast become a haven for food and wine aficionados, with 10 distinctly different restaurants, within and out of the resort itself! Don’t miss out on a world of flavours, in the heart of the Algarve, from the 2 star Ocean, to the brand new MIZU Teppanyaki!
As part of our sustainable policy, we try and help with local community issues, offering our communication design expertise. This often means giving full design support to charity events, dedicated towards local causes, but also, we cover other issues. More recently we supported the GNR, command of the Loulé district, with their Safe Residence Programme by creating a befitting identity, identity manual, business cards, brochures, and display material. This will help towards making the programme more visible to the public, so more people sign up, resulting in higher crime prevention. Local suppliers, Letra7 and Grafica Comercial, also helped the cause by offering production.
In the news, Essential Algarve recently carried a 4-page Essential Design feature on Fred and his family, founder of Atelier do Sul Communication Design. Read more here.
Invited once again, by our business partner Gráfica Comercial, to design their calendar collection, for this year’s theme, we chose to devote to the Mediterranean diet, shown through the eyes of the talented local photographer, Vasco Célio, with recipes from distinguished cuisine and gastronomy connoisseurs, Chef Bertilio Gomes and writer/researcher Maria Manuel Valagão. They also published a wonderful book in English or Portuguese, available at outlets like FNAC, or online, look for ‘Algarve Mediterrânico’
