Bar Fausto


Fausto Says Drink.

Two of Denver’s top restaurateurs, Jonathan Powers and Koan Goedman, partnered up for a cocktail bar in the RINO neighborhood of Denver. Being cycling enthusiasts, and fans of Italian cyclist Fausto Coppi, the partners tasked Mast with creating a brand rooted in vintage Italian cycling. The result is a type-driven brand accompanied by a subtle anise icon as nod to Jonathan and Koan’s love of amaro.

Fausto Caps

Drawing inspiration from classic Italian shop signage, a custom typeface was created in partnership with Badson Studio. The typeface was utilized for all collateral as well as interior and exterior signage.

Cycling is in the details at Bar Fausto. Down to the check carriers which hold the cards and receipts with rubber bike tape.
