Duo + Quintess Brand Package

The most beautiful vacation homes in the world’s most coveted locations totally staffed to meet your every need. That is Quintess — a luxury club for discerning vacationers with resources. I recently had the opportunity to offer up site designs for the main Quintess site as well as both identity and digital brand assets for a new vacation club within the Quintess house of brands called “DUO.” The work strikes a balance between sleek elegance and a rich, textural approach. The site designs themselves use a mixture of gorgeous photography of the properties themselves, clean, elegant typography, deep, evocative color scheming and custom damask patterns. The DUO identity is at once bold, contemporary and rich. The split “O” at the terminus of the mark signifies the concept of “II,” speaking to the brand’s direct relationship to the main Quintess offering. I really enjoyed putting these together.

Pear Tree Packaging

The Pear Tree Restaurant is a jewel of fine dining in Bevier, Missouri with a national reputation for food excellence and peerless service. When the Pear Tree does something, it does it right. That’s the central theme behind a new line of packaged foods from The Pear Tree. This packaging for fine croutons made from the best ingredients and artisan breads captures this central belief while introducing a new, more contemporary flavor to the restaurant’s face to the world. At once modern, bold and approachable this design communicates the exciting new feeling of this new chapter for The Pear Tree brand. This is the first of a series of packaging assignments including a flight of salad dressings and BBQ sauces. I will post those as developed and roll this into a single case study.

Also shown: Two additional concepts for the package that we’re not selected but were compelling in their own right.
