Making Mexican ice cream look cool

The brand was established by Lorena, a young female entrepreneur from Hidalgo, Mexico with a passion for ice cream looking for a friendly, modern and cool identity – pun intended.


Mexicans have a strong sense of identity with “Rosa mexicano” (“Mexican pink”) being considered the colour of a nation. The name “BAJO ZERO” is spelt sightly differently to what it should be in Spanish, with a “z” instead of a “c”. Whilst this adds a unique touch and great recognition factor, the readability of the chosen typography was extra important.

The brand identity is simple and refined with a nod to ice cream scoops and combines aspects of Mexican culture with a modern and elegant colour palette.
