The Plaza Hotel, located in the heart of Downtown Milwaukee has been positioned as the city’s resident Art Deco hotel since 1925.
With a resurgence in Milwaukee’s downtown neighborhood, and new players entering the hotel market place, The Plaza approached Company B for a much needed facelift.
Refreshing an iconic local brand can be a daunting task–why mess with a formula if it’s working? But rebranding poses an opportunity to tighten messaging, reinvigorate existing consumers and reach new markets.
Through story-driven photography captured by Haas & Haas we used the hotel’s charm as a backdrop to our muses: a young couple and group of friends- all approachable, causal, well-cultured and curious.
New imagery, coupled with bold messaging and an eye-catching website positioned The Plaza a cut above their competition.
