Chambres d'Hote et Gite

After discussing the brief with the client there was a clear direction to take with this project. Wanting a modern, simple and minimalist design incorporating the dovecote attached to the property, hence the name.

I used photographs of the property to re draw a simple version of the dovecote and creating a pleasing, modern and minimalist icon that works at varying sizes.

The whole experience of La Dovecote is to offer its guests a friendly, calming and relaxed vacation, so I opted to include light and earthy colour palette,

contrasted with calming pastel type pinks and a deep slate grey for amazing contrast which again favoured the modern element to the overall design.

I wanted to match the minimalist icon with a typeface that was both elegant and modern in style had a lot of character. I chose a typeface called 'Golden' that I customised to pair with the icon.
