remember this post about why we are attracted to certain images? well, here is part two: a master class from wes anderson, appropriately called centered, compiled by kogonada. when i am in need of design inspiration, wes anderson is often the answer. wes anderson movies and looking at the costume design of cirque du soleil productions. works every time!
oh man. i'm in love.
this is the identity design and branding for 1 hotels, a new eco-conscious chain (from starwood) launching properties in manhattan, brooklyn and miami.
the branding is consistent but flexible, clean but not boring, and says a lot with a little. it's just so good.
creative direction is from michael ian kaye and christian cervantes. design is from chris rogers and jules tardy.
