Okela is a bar in the Indautxu neighbourhood of Bilbao, Spain. On modest napkins, the bar saw ample space to use two colors and four typefaces: Rockwell Extra Bold for the logo; Medici Script (Hermann Zapf) in the text “Bilbao 1983 / Pedido on line / www.barokela.com”; El Greco (Günter Gerhard Lange) for “Marqués Navarrete”; and Times for “RIOJA” (Bold, manually condensed) and Bold Italic for the last three lines.
