Identity and collateral for 5-star resort group by & SMITH.
With five Indian Ocean properties, LUX* Island Resorts offer lighter, brighter holidays. Involved from an early stage, we contributed to strategy, naming and operational concepts before creating the brand identity. Vibrant and distinctive, the identity reflects a lively, spontaneous brand seeking to avoid the predictable patterns associated with luxury travel. A monolithic logotype is supported by a broad colour palette and candid photography, while operations respect a ‘light-footed’ commitment to preserving the islands‘ natural beauty. A comprehensive roll out has encompassed everything from ’50 Reasons to go LUX*’ (a unique twist on traditional brochures) to websites, room directories, menus, sub-brands and complimentary holiday journals for every guest.
PARISTEXAS is an exclusive fashion store focusing on specially selected designer products for men and women. Brand design by Scandinavian DesignLab.
The visual identity springs from the contrast inherent in the name – the morphing of Paris and Texas. The logotype is simple and taut, while the colour palette is flexible and changes with the collections. Identity and uniqueness come to the fore when the store’s symphony of collections is juxtaposed with the austere underground style and becomes a morphing of music instruments and earthly insects.With this contrast-filled universe, the solution seeks not only to break with the traditional perception of beauty and fashion – it also challenges the classic approach to working with identity. The primary identity element is not only a logo, but also a symbolic universe with a life of its own.
