"The city is like a kaleidoscope. Each step, each turn, each move unfolds a new image, a new vision, a new story. The Taste of Barcelona is a tour that highlights some of the many facets of this kaleidoscope. You can book the tour, if you’re around, and join Andre, chef and guide, for almost half a day of tastings and stories, with lots of food and fun.
Or you can take a look at the Blog and join, virtually this time, Ioana, blogger, in discovering places, trying dishes, learning about traditions, meeting people and sharing everybody’s passions, experiences and point of view on Barcelona."
The logo of the Taste of Barcelona is actually a collection of local patterns - the Modernist pavement of the streets, some ceramic tiles from the restaurants of the tour, the specific broken tile mosaic of Catalunya (trencadis), all of them turned into an organically shaped background, a kind of watermark to hold the letters. The colors of the identity design are, obviously, the main nuances we find on the plates: the soft yellow of cured Manchego cheese, the red of the jamón ibérico, the green of coriander, the light purple of the saffron used in paella, as well as the light blue as symbol for seafood.
The Taste of Barcelona is an ongoing project, developed with a chef and paella class teacher here, in the city, and includes graphic identity, as well as content for the blog, website design and, in the near future, social media management.
The blog of the Taste of Barcelona is designed in WordPress. It features my and my friends' walks in the city, tastings, photo sessions, stories about food, architecture, music, special events and everything related with the city. It is neither a critique nor a general blog about food & the city, it is about places we've been, tastes we've tried, stories we've discovered and routes we're thinking about for creating alternative tours and walks, personalized immersions into the life of this vibrant city.
