Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Branding / New Branding Schemes: Large Business / 2009

SLS is an international luxury hotel brand that combines elegance and excellence with creativity and playful wit. The brief emphasised the need for a logo which felt traditional and authentic while embodying the brand's subversive difference. The graphic solution draws on traditional European heraldry. At first glance, the logo looks like a crest adorned by beasts. On closer inspection, it is revealed as a chandelier being vandalised by mischievous monkeys. Additional graphic language, essential for the huge range of applications and communications required by the hotel, was created including a library of monkey related engravings and paintings.
