Port Fonda

Port Fonda is an award-winning Mexican restaurant based in Kansas City, Missouri. Owned by James Beard Foundation Semifinalist Chef Patrick Ryan, the restaurant has become a city-wide favorite for its modern take on Mexican cuisine made with top quality, locally sourced ingredients.

Port Fonda worked with Hufft on the interior design of their second location in Lawrence, Kansas. I worked on the signage and wayfinding package for the restaurant which utilizes many existing brand elements repurposed in new and unique applications.

We teamed up with owner Patrick Ryan's tattoo artist Mikey Wheeler to illustrate Kansas University and Mexican themed scenes. These line drawings were then vectorized, cut from white vinyl and applied as window graphic "sleeves".
