A mix of funky and simple projects this week, with work from Stockholm, Porto Alegre, and Guadalajara.

Hilma by Magdalena Czarnecki

Hilma by Magdalena Czarnecki

Hilma is a bar, restaurant, and tattoo parlor in Stockholm, Sweden, named after Hilma af Klint (1862 - 1944), a Swedish artist and mystic. The restaurant-bar-tattoo has a groovy underground vibe, which has been punk-ishly captured by local designer Magdalena Czarnecki with a hand-painted logo — which translates beautifully into vector (and into neon) — that is accompanied by hand-drawn snippets of Hilma’s writing and complemented with a bold sans serif and elegant serif. The thin-line diagrams are based on Hilma’s abstract paintings. It all has a nice balance of being chaotic yet elegant. See full project

Alfajores Odara by StudioBah

Alfajores Odara by StudioBah

Odara is a line of alfajores — a delicious South American and Spanish treat — produced by two young entrepreneurs in the beach-flanked city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. The name Odara in Hindi means peace and tranquility and the chill attitude has been translated into a lovely, minimal packaging system by local firm StudioBah. I know this lacks the visual pow-wow of most Friday Likes but I love the simplicity of the packaging, the matte finish of the bags, and the simple system to distinguish between dark and white chocolate. Plus, hotdamn if I don’t want one right now. See full project

Kodak Club by Estudio Albino

Kodak Club by Estudio Albino

Kodak Club was (it’s closed now) an electronic music nightclub in Guadalajara, Mexico. There is not a lot about it online, so I couldn’t confirm if much of this stuff was actually produced and used but, nonetheless, it has fun and different energy that I thought would make for a nice change of pace. Designed by local firm Estudio Albino, the red-and-black-hued identity is pure grunge eye candy that’s perfect for a nightclub. I’m not into EDM in any way but I can see how this would get someone in the mood for some of it, at loud volumes. See full project
