Creating an identity built on heritage and architecture
Graydon Hall Manor is one of Toronto's most famed historic homes and even space. Tucked away in the Graydon Hall Community, the client needed a brand and signage that complimented the manor. Working with architectural features, landscape and historical artifacts, we developed an identity that truly reflected the manor's beauty and history.
Multiple creative options were explored, including monograms, wordmarks and traditional logo marks. In the end, we opted to produce a sketched depiction of the home. The sketch mirrors some of the home's original drawings. The sketch was then meticulously vectorized into a functional logo.
The colour palette captures the wonderful array of earth tones visible in the buildings architecture. These earth tones make up both our primary and foundational colours. The secondary colour palette plays homage to the wonderful gardens surrounding the manor.
