Logo & Brand Identity

We worked to create a brand that combined the timeless sophistication of New Haven, with a fresh, youthful feel that would speak well to the demographic. A refined wordmark logo was created, paired with a secondary logo icon that can be used across signage and other marketing materials. Additional graphic elements like a dynamic angled pattern and plaid texture, along with rich, warm photography, helped the brand feel cohesive and elevated.

Brochure Design

A printed brochure was designed to highlight the incredible location, amenities, and quality design of the property. In a market where most advertising is done digitally, a quality, economical print piece like this often makes a strong lasting impression on prospects and helps further showcase the brand.
