A true fixture in Milwaukee since the roaring twenties, The Plaza Hotel is a classic European boutique hotel nestled in Milwaukee’s lower east side. As with many historic hotels, their branding got lost overtime and resulted in inconsistent messaging and outdated visuals. Tasked with discovering a marriage between the history of the hotel and its eclectic guests, Company B took a narrative approach, both visually and through messaging, creating a whole new adventure.
In a playful manner, we also refreshed the hotel’s collateral. With a nod to adventure and capturing a love for travel, interesting graphics and phrases like “Flattery will get you everywhere” and “C’est Magnifique” can be found throughout the hotel – a fun way of piquing guest interest and keeping the hotel bold yet approachable.
