The New Image
I knew it was time for a change, and I’ve started with the logo.
The old logo had been around for 10 years and was starting to show its age.
I decided on a figurative logo that would feature a sunny Sicilian setting by the sea. To make it more authentic, I chose Casa Arturo, one of our company's first and most iconic properties, as the cornerstone of the design.
I kept the bright yellow and turquoise colours from the old website and chose a round logo format that would fit well in the circular spaces used by larger rental platforms like Airbnb and VRBO
I used the same design style to create a consistent look and feel across all our communications, including our correspondence with owners, our social media accounts and of course our new website.
