Master Residences Yinchuan branding

Close

Overview

An exclusive, luxury residential precinct in Yinchuan, northern China needed a name. Andrew W Morse (founder of Digital Tsunami) was appointed Creative Director of the marketing for the property in July 2015. His responsibility was vision and strategy for the launch of this exceptional property.

After multiple considerations, the name Master Residences Yinchuan was selected. To highlight the location of the precinct across from City Hall, the Exhibition Centre, new Opera House, Ningxia Museum and other important civic buildings, and inspired by Mr. Ma, corporation founder, Andrew created the brandline “Oasis in the Heart of the City”.

The identity (a letter ‘Y’ wreathed in the leaves of a native plant) was refined and applied to all collaterals. In print applications spot UV was used to subtly display a sheen on black surfaces. In invitations and hardbound books, a bronze metallic leaf was used, resembling the glow on sand dunes at sunset.

A triangular motif, (derived from the logo designed by Landor for the parent company Master), was applied extensively on endpapers and print collaterals.

For the 248 page hardbound book, revealing the exhaustive world-class technology of the properties, Andrew conceived the title “A Design Perspective” to encapsulate the focus on design excellence in concealed engineering fundamentals as well as the visible interior and exterior style.

The international design and content production team implemented the brand across an extensive range of bilingual advertising and marketing collaterals and premiums, including:

  • a presentation folder
  • 4K aerials
  • computer graphic animation
  • a double page press ad
  • dual responsive online sites
  • office and wayfinding signage
  • a bilingual retractable banner
  • dual language 4 page datasheets
  • bilingual 48 page softbound booklet
  • bilingual 106 page hardbound owner’s book
  • bilingual 248 page hardbound technical book
  • a printed video ‘book’ with auto-playing integrated video screen
  • a debossed leather notepad and branded executive pen in a presentation case
  • a diecut foiled invitation card, metallic paper envelope and hand stamped wax seal with silk tassel
  • a luxury branded carry bag

The experience of Digital Tsunami was perfectly suited to ensuring a consistent implicit and explicit message throughout all online and offline touchpoints. This project is a perfect example of the production of a cohesive marketing campaign across all digital and tactile media.

(We) took a fairly substantial audit of .. sophisticated sites both technically and creatively .. Out of six prominent designers, Digital Tsunami stood out.

The quality of the images, the sophisticated management of text .. together with smooth animations makes (our) website of very high calibre.

I would personally rate this site in the top 2 percent of world wide web sites today.
