The Blake Hotel // New Haven
Branding and Art Direction for The Blake Hotel and Hamilton Park, a boutique hotel and restaurant located in the heart of New Haven. The Blake Hotel brings a vibrant metropolitan experience to New Haven. The communal spaces aim to be in line with the iconic New York Hotel Residences such as the Chelsea Hotel, Plaza Carlye in the 70s and the dining establishments frequented by these guests.
Taking typographic inspiration from these establishments and graphic inspiration from New Haven’s art scene, the project intends to show the interplay between a city’s hospitality centers and it’s art scene.
My role was to the lead the design and execution of the project, from concepting to project completion.
