Designed by Cardumen 467.

Named for an early 1900s civil association tasked with the dissemination of culture, the arts, and humanities, the El Ateneo restaurant’s menus reflect the restaurant’s mission—the dissemination of cuisine and culture—through contemporary Mexican design aimed at identifying with a young demographic. Here, conventional folk elements are cleaned up and paired with contemporary typography. For example, local community traditions are represented through updated interpretations of traditional illustration styles in the ocelot logo and animal print pattern. The colorful feline’s skin represents freedom of movement, thought, and life, which were core ideals behind the Ateneo generation’s cultural, ethical, and aesthetic values.
