Limilia is a sea-to-table restaurant inside the Itz’ana Resort, it celebrates the diversity and abundance of the area, with a nod to the Garifuna, its original inhabitants. The seasonal, seafood-focused fare highlights locally sourced ingredients, including vegetables from our organic farm as well as fresh fish line-caught by our on-staff fisherman.
The identity was inspired by the name itself. Imagined an actual person behind Limilia. It should be someone you know, a stylish, eccentric aunt who traveled the world and can surprise you with her colorful cooking. From this came a portrait of a hard-to-place-aged lady and a brushed signature logo.
The logo itself was inspired by the many textures you find in the restaurant, and a brushed look felt natural, honest and personal. The result was Limilia's signature appearing like a sign-off on menus, as if she signed a letter as a sign of approval, giving a nod to the fresh and high quality cuisine.
