Bold new brand for hotel and apartment development in Nairobi.

Zehneria Hotel



In collaboration with Nektar, we worked with the team behind Zehneria hotel to research and create a new brand identity for their new boutique hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. 

Combined with roll out to stationery, signage, wayfinding and other collateral, the  brand development created a base on which the hotel could build its presence and position in the market.

Zehneria derives its name from the traditional Kenyan plant 'Zehneria' which grows into a wide reach of fruits and leaves.

Our first brief was to create an identity for this new hotel. There was no existing brand or collateral, so we were given a blank canvas and a brilliant brief from our friends at Nektar. 

After an iterative process, the final identity was born, very much inspired by African print and art.

The core of the brand is a flexible brand mark that has been used in a variety of ways across the roll out, which included stationery, signage, wayfinding and other collateral to create brand continuity and awareness throughout the hotel.
