Mövenpick Unveils Recent Logo

Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts, a global Swiss hospitality company, has revealed its recent logo and its corporate identity. It drew its inspiration from the brand’s origin, the contemporary and clean visual identity which reflects warmth and self-assurance, including the Swiss characteristic that radiates through its properties and staff throughout the world.

A new brand identity

Since the Mövenpick brand’s inception during 1948 with its first restaurant opening in Zurich, it already expanded to include fine foods, wine, plus a hotel business that has grown to be the biggest part of its family. With the portfolio for Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts blossoming, it was proper for it to refresh its brand identity to reflect the relaxed confidence, amiable efficiency and quality of what Mövenpick now stands for.

Bulletproof, a brand design agency from London, was told to create a visual identity, and it got inspiration from Mövenpick’s roots. According to legend, its founder Ueli Prager named the company after the sea gull’s movements, or what is termed as “Mowe” by Germans. The bird form became a constant to the company’s logo ever since. Bulletproof reinterpreted this same element and gave it a different depth and movement, for it to soar over a more modern and cleaner word marque surrounded by Mövenpick’s corporate colours.

A different service philosophy

A different service philosophy called “We Make Moments” is also going to come greatly to the front, which brings together core behaviours, values and vision of the brand to make memorable moments for its guests. These moments may include its brand signature, such as the Chocolate Hour, which offers that quintessential Swiss chocolate experience. With this philosophy, Mövenpick is going to adopt a different approach that centres on capturing moments of wonder, created by its team for the guests.

The Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts VP for brand and marketing Nick Bosworth mentioned that they are extremely proud of their Swiss heritage and that they needed a different identity that connects with consumers in each market, especially in a world which is beginning to be more global.

Conclusion

With Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts offering quality service and different suite rooms in Pattaya and other locations, its guests are going to truly see and feel its new brand identity and service philosophy.

How Pinterest Helps Home Decorators And Designers

Erin Treat is a resident of Durango and she admits that she is a frequent traveler. Whenever she wanted to have a remodeling project for her home, she finds it hard to squeeze in time to meet with decorators or choose among the list of vendors.

That is now a past issue, thanks to Pinterest. Treat shared that she now able to easily coordinate with her designers such as choosing the kitchen lights or picking out the floor tiling. She is constantly sharing pins with her designer Sheryl Lock who is a partner at the Handcrafted House located also in Durango.

Treat revealed that in Durango, they do not have much option when it comes to designs and their access to various vendors is very limited. With Pinterest, they are now able to search for the design they like and it is also a good medium of communication between her and the designer.

Pinterest was introduced to web users seven years back. Ever since, the site which is dedicated for image sharing alone has been used as a machine to create more ideas, it is a place where online users can hang out and kill some time and it has also proven to be a very effective tool for business people.

According to the co-owner of Mexican Tile Designs based in Bayfield, Jenny Wrenn, their business has been operating online 90 per cent of the time and only 10 per cent is done locally. She also shared how Pinterest has helped her and her partner in operating their business for more than three years already. Customers are able to find them through Pinterest and 20 per cent of their entire web traffic is because of the image sharing site. Wrenn admitted that while there is still revenue coming from Facebook and Instagram, it is very little compared to Pinterest.

All over Durango, many Pinterest users are suppliers of home improvement products, interior designers and decorators. They have found the website to be a helpful medium between the client and designer and it has revolutionized the way planning is done.

Rust Belt Pride Shines In New Buffalo Illustrated Map

Mario Zucca, a Philadelphia-based illustrator, has a strong desire for both map making and Rust Belt cities, and these came together in his current work, an extremely detailed map illustration of the Buffalo area which showcases almost all points of the Buffalo pride conceivable.

Points found in the map

The Mighty Taco and Shark Girl are there, even including a 2,000 foot version of Tim Horton that extends across the Hotel Lafayette.

Flying Bison, Sahlen’s, Talking Leaves, Caz Park, the Broadway Market, Five Points Bakery, Community Beer Works, Lucky’s Texas Hots and the Edward M. Cotter fireboat are also there.

The Buffalo News building also makes its appearance, located between the Mazurek’s Bakery and the KeyBank which was recently renamed.

This is the fourth map in Zucca’s city-based map illustration series. He started around two years ago with his detailed map of Philadelphia. Then, the maps of Pittsburgh and Portland came after.

Zucca has works in publications such as the Newsweek, New York Magazine, The New York Times and the National Football League. He said that he picked Buffalo because he has an affinity for the rust belt cities, coming from Pittsburgh originally.

Zucca talking about inspiration, trademark style and more

He talked with The News regarding his inspiration for his project, trademark style and the reaction coming from people on his maps shown in Reddit.

When asked about the reason he set out to create the city-based map illustrations, he responded that he was inspired by an illustrator who did an illustrated map of Brooklyn. It was then he wanted to make one of Philadelphia in his own style. That illustrator’s map motivated him to create a map for Philly then Pittsburgh, Portland and Buffalo.

In his commission work, he does many busy and crowded scenes with many small narratives throughout, so he applies that similar mentality to his maps. He wants for his images to be between an attractive art piece and a map.

For his other city maps, there were positive feedback. The people on Reddit were the harshest critics, according to him. However, he already has many assignments which are map-related. For him, it wasn’t his intended result, but it is a pleasing side effect.

How Packaging Design Helps In Building Brand Loyalty

There is abundant choice for packaging design but rule number one says that brands must be innovative so that their products will stand out in store shelves. Brands must look beyond the aesthetic appeal of packaging design because functionality is also important. For example, the growth of the convenience food sector is attributed to changes in lifestyle and habits so that brands have to consider how their products can be consumed while away from home.

The food and drink industry has remained stable and resilient even during the economic downturn. It is one of the manufacturing sectors that have surpassed the €1 Trillion turnover. Brands need to get inspiration on how to manage their convenience lines because customers are looking at premium ready meals that offer quality dining experience.

According to Sun Branding Solutions packaging technology director, Gillian Garside-Wight, shelf life is very critical for convenience trend. Products must stay fresh longer because of the health element at work. Packages should be flexible because some consumers are not likely to overeat and prefer a more realistic portion. When buying food products, customers usually want to see what is inside and a window or transparent lid can give customers the assurance that they are choosing something they like. In packaging, food manufacturers have to assess where to put the window to ensure that it presents the product in the best possible way.

To engage consumers on a more personal level, brands need more in-depth understanding of the packaging design for the food sector. According to David Luttenberger, the global packaging director of Mintel, brands need innovative packaging so that global customers will stay loyal to the brand. This is very important in this age where consumers have more choices for packaged goods.

A key driver for all brands is the need to meet consumer demand on the practical application of packaging design. Consumers are increasingly becoming more demanding and this encourages more packaging innovations. Paper Mart paper bags offer an eco-friendly and cost effective option for packaging. Packaging design can be customized through print and color so that it can easily catch the interest of consumers.
