A Lobby Boy is completely invisible, yet always in sight.
A Lobby Boy remembers what people hate.
A Lobby Boy anticipates the client’s needs before the needs are needed.
A Lobby Boy, above all, is discreet, to a fault.
-M. Gustave H. of the Grand Budapest Hotel
With that simple quote, and many lengthy discussions across the oceans, and in person, we designed stationery and packaging for Shantanu Starick’s photographic prints. Our goal was to enhance a moment: an intimate unearthing and discovery of the artwork within. The packaging is rich with small details, antique postal applications, a statement of encouragement and graphic cartography tools.
The prints are accompanied by a book that breathes, and a personal note on timeless letterpress printed stationery.
The ‘South Point’ logo mark is an homage to Shantanu’s international travels and southern hemisphere heritage.
