    Okela is a bar in the Indautxu neighbourhood of Bilbao, Spain.
    On modest napkins, the bar saw ample space to use two colors and four typefaces:

    Rockwell Extra Bold for the logo; Medici Script (Hermann Zapf) in the text “Bilbao 1983 / Pedido on line / www.barokela.com”; El Greco (Günter Gerhard Lange) for “Marqués Navarrete”; and Times for “RIOJA” (Bold, manually condensed) and Bold Italic for the last three lines.

    Typefaces

    • Rockwell
    • Medici Script
    • El Greco

      The first documented Use in the Collection for two typefaces by two grand old men of German typeface design at once – and then it’s a hardly imposing napkin. I think that’s hilarious!
