Convent Carmen is a new cultural and gastronomic space born in the neighborhood of the same name, El Carmen of València. Located in the old Carmelite convent of St.Joseph and St.Theresa, Convent Carmen is defined as an open space both to the locals and newcomers, a convent open to the community where they can participate in different cultural and gastronomic events.
We have designed a logo in black and white, where the letter T is transformed into a cross through a neon green square as a reference to the physical space that once was a convent. The logo was designed in two versions (horizontal and vertical) so that it can be adapted to different application needs.
Thus we have a visual system dominated by the use of the reticle, typography, photography, positive and negative and a point of color. The color helps us separate the different areas: green for cultural events, red for everything related to their gastronomic offer, blue for the future hotel, etc.
The typeface family chosen for the development of the brand and the pieces is Commercial Type’s Druk, sans serif and bold, in several versions, condensed and extended. As a complementary typeface we have Schick Toikka’s Chap, a classic but contemporary font that refers to the reconversion of this religious space, now open to the public.
