ikon creates a distinct identity and concept for each hotel, aligning it perfectly with its vision, values, and unique selling proposition. ikon designs unique brand marks, logos, colour palettes, and typography systems, ensuring instant recognition and brand consistency.
ikon's branding approach is all about making a well-thought-out brand strategy that works hand in hand with a naturally insightful creative plan. This means that we think deeply about the brand's ultimate goal, who their ideal customers are (also known as the target market), and devise a tailored plan to make this happen.
Imagine the brand's vision as the base or foundation of this strategy. It's a detailed understanding of what the brand is all about, what it believes in, and how it wants to be seen by the people it's trying to reach.
To know exactly what the target market or potential guests wants, ikon's team of experts undertakes a lot of research. They discover what these people need, want, and expect from a hotel experience. This knowledge helps ikon shape messages about the brand that will connect deeply with the audience. It also helps guide the creative plan, making sure it aligns perfectly with what the target market finds attractive and appealing.
The execution phase, where the plan is put into action, leans heavily on the creative strategy. It aims to tell a visually striking and emotionally engaging story that effectively connects with the audience no matter where they encounter the brand.
Guest experience strategy lies at the heart of its branding services, reflecting a deep understanding of the importance of guest interactions at every level. The agency acknowledges that in luxury hospitality, every detail matters, and every interaction can make or break the guest's overall impression. The agency devises strategies to enhance the guest experience at every touchpoint, setting hospitality clients apart.
ikon's designers specialise in crafting brand collaterals such as business cards, , websites, social media graphics, letterheads, and brochures for hotels, keeping the hotel's visual identity consistent and professional across all touchpoints. This extends to creating comprehensive brand manuals, which detail the rules and guidelines for maintaining brand consistency across various mediums and platforms.
But the importance of graphic design in this process goes deeper than just aesthetic appeal. It's a strategic communication tool. The designs created by ikon do more than just look good; they convey the brand's message and values in a visually engaging way. When potential guests encounter these advertising design elements, they get a feel for what the hotel is all about—its atmosphere, its standards of service, even its personality—before they even set foot in the building.
