Hafenbar Sarnen

Turning real life into fantasy: Vectorising a harbour bar by Lake Sarnen

Hafenbar Sarnen is a snack bar right by Lake Sarnen in countryside Switzerland that also provides boat rentals and entertainment. The folks at this beautiful place challenged us to translate their real life scenery and business features into one cohesive illustration to use on their homepage.

Aside from the main scenery, we created fifteen individual objects of interest as vector artworks to serve as the homepage’s icons. As the bar operates only in summer, we created an illustration that conveys fun and youth with a few anthropomorphic items to appeal to young holidaymakers. These are framed as a whole to look like a travel postcard to encourage visits.
