Discovery and insights
From our discovery phase, our analysis and key findings directed us to the wealth of inspiration within the Mayan culture
Positioning and brand narrative
As a result, our positioning for the brand and the essence of the brand narrative were based around the Mayan theme. This led to a set of brand values built around the luxury of nature, sustainability, well being and the feeling of personal space.
We translated these values into a look and feel that reflect ‘eco luxury’
The naming, visualisation, tone of voice and execution are in tune with the laid back luxury sought by the target audience; the logo is inspired by local Mayan artworks and the significant presence of turtles in the barrier reef; the colour palette reflects the turquoise, gold and green of the sea and rain forest.
Final outcomes: brand logo, colour palette, visual language, tone of voice, guidelines, launch collateral, website investor brochures, E newsletters, website, content and ongoing marketing services.
