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 a logo mark, 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.
