Castaways Bar & Grill

Castaways Bar & Grill is a laid-back, Key West-themed gem with a poolside terrace perfect for hanging out with family and friends. With island-inspired cuisine and refreshing specialty cocktails while you enjoy great conversation and island-style tunes.

For the logo, the lettering and palm tree element were created with an ink and a brush. I wanted to capture the feeling of calm ocean waters when creating the type treatment. The type is against three brush strokes that resemble planks of wood. The colors I felt embodied the sence that Key West has.

As for the menu, I tied in various inspirations from the site itself, there is a large boat at the entrance, fishing rods hung on the walls and postcards on the countertops. All the illustrations in both the drink menu and food menu have been handmade with ink and watercolor. The drink menu has been styled to look like a collection of memories collected through notes and drawings of a vacation in Key West.

This bar is located in Sheraton Vistana Resort. For more information on the bar visit
