Hostel Pròleg is a hostel created for the curious minded, it’s aim is to give an adventure of a lifetime. It is the introduction to the guests story, hence the name (in Catalan) Prologue.
The idea behind the whole branding is to keep it as simple as possible using lots of white and mainly text, to give a sensation of reading a book. Clients have to use their imagination to picture what the details are.
The crosses have been used to mark important information, i.e x marks the spot as used in adventure stories. Akzidenz Grotesk has been used throughout in order to keep the branding completely authentic, as it is the first grostesk typeface that was officially created.
The colours selected: red, green and purple
were selected to represent the colours of the city of Barcelona, red of the lights, green of the mountains sorrounding the city and purple is the combination of the sea and streets.
This project was created for the ELISAVA
School of Design in Barcelona and is not a real project, it was a pleasure doing it and I hope that you’ve enjoyed it.
