Brand Identity

Che Gaucho needed a modern update to their logo and restaurant design that reflected Argentinian their culture and story behind their name.

Che: Often used to get someone’s attention, or to express surprise, pleasure, or questioning. It’s the equivalent to a “hey”. It is either a native South American word of the Tehuelche or Puelche Indians or a term derived from Xe a word used in Valencia, Spain with a similar meaning.

Gaucho: This is much more than a Spanish word for a cowboy; this word evokes the fiercely independent, loyal, hardy, and legendary figure of the rural countryside in Argentina. The gaucho was also known for being highly skilled horsemen. It is said that President Rosas of the early 1800s could scoop up his “sombrero” off the ground while galloping and without holding on to the pommel of his saddle.
