Inspiration gathered from various publications for our brainstorming process.

Naming and Identity

Cygnus /ˈsɪɡnəs/ is a northern constellation, derived from the Latinized Greek word for swan.

To come up with a name for this new business, we delved into the travel agency's vision. We needed an identity that can illustrate their private island resort, their luxury car and boat rentals, and their event planning services. Our choice, Cygnus, is a dreamy and romantic metaphor for a journey to remember.

Marketing Material

We created a bi-lingual booklet featuring each of Cygnus' services, as well as designed business cards for the team. We created constellation illustrations and graphics to further enhance their branding.

Website

The website for Cygnus was designed to cater to western travellers, as well as to the Asian market. We implemented the site in two languages, English and Chinese. The landing page featured a short film and each service page hosts an animated gallery of images.
