Hotel de’L Annapurna’s previous logo was created at least half a century ago and the current management had no remembrance of the theme the shape was based upon. Moreover, there was no way by which the branding of the logo could be carried into hotel’s other outlets and products. Sanjay was commissioned to re-approach the logo design but still not go too far from the original logo. First thing first, He went on to investigate what shapes the logo was made of. Having found out he came up with the Brand design where the original identity of the hotel remains, although the logo had a modern look and can be used on other products and media, such as a mobile App.
