Granville Hotel

Project overview

The Granville Hotel is a landmark hotel situated in the heart of Waterford city. Built in the 1700s, it exudes timeless grandeur and elegance, combining the hospitality of old with the luxury of new.

They got in touch with us after seeing the design work we had done for other hotels. They particularly liked our strategic approach and asked if we could help to refresh their brand identity and streamline their marketing collateral.

This is the type of project we love so we didn’t hesitate to say yes. We’ve since gone onto to design a lot more stuff for them and the relationship has evolved into a fruitful partnership for both sides.

They liked the charm and familiarity of their old logo. It was part of their historic identity. With that in mind, it didn’t make sense to completely re-design or transform it. The logo just needed some modernisation to make it more contemporary and media friendly, which we did.

More importantly, we prepared a Brand Bible or Style Guide in which we outlined the correct usage of their logo, the specific fonts, colour palette and file formats. We designed templates for all their frequently used items like business cards, letterheads, PowerPoint presentations, menus, signage etc.

They were delighted with the finished result because they finally had a ‘rule book’ they could follow to maintain the integrity of their brand and ensure consistency across their various functions and external parties.
