Identity System Extension, Collateral, Paper System, Signage & Wayfinding
Corinne, Lobbyist, Loaf + Vine

Corinne, Lobbyist, Loaf + Vine all had existing locations across the country, but the team behind the Austin Marriott Downtown knew to succeed in Austin, they each needed more flexible and robust identity systems to create a holistic experience.

Corinne is a modern American bistro touting Honest Food & Drink. Inspired by the name, we gave Corinne her own identity through an organic mono-line illustration suite that made its way across the collateral system to menus, check presenters, coasters and beyond.

The Lobbyist's name was our main source of inspiration, reminiscent of deals made over cocktails on Capitol Hill. We adapted this into a brand extension featuring illustrated handshakes and motifs of ledgers, keys and security seals along with the tagline, "High End. Low Key."
Loaf + Vine's existing black-and-white brand reminded us of traditional subway tiling and New York City bodegas. We expanded upon that inspiration as we extended the brand suite, adding additional secondary marks featuring iconography and a sticker system featuring bright accent colors.
We are co-conspirators with like-minded people and brands who aren’t afraid to break things.
