An annual tradition at Durham’s Six Plates Wine bar, the Txakolifest celebration reels in a host of patrons to enjoy live music, small plates and txakoli, a Basque Country white wine.
Restaurant owner Matthew Beason was looking for a festival identity and promotional collateral that combined the Six Plates aesthetic with Basque influences. Some of these influences include the porron and the festive typography of Basque Country shop signage.
The porron and expressive typography were incorporated into the festival identity. In the promotional materials, we merged these elements with the contemporary coolness of Six Plates Wine bar. Ultimately, the Txakolifest collateral helped to build anticipation for this annual celebration of Basque traditions.
