A well-established and beloved brand, the challenge for this project was to give it a modern touch without losing the quirky, old-Austin charm that it was founded with.
A big inspiration for the rebrand was the apothecary style of the interior of Santa Fe’s store. The slab serif typeface and the traditional color scheme give the brand a sense of quality and longevity. Illustrative embellishments drawn from the city of Austin itself infuse the brand with a sense of humor that parallels the quirky diversity of the frames that Santa Fe provides.
