Bright Bright Great is excited to announce the launch of branding and in-hotel experience for The Landing Hotel, an upscale boutique destination with 165 rooms situated on the picturesque Mohawk Harbor in Schenectady, New York, with direct access to the Rivers Casino & Resort.
Bright Bright Great has been working with Rush Street (Rivers Casino & Resort & SugarHouse Casino’s parent company) since 2015 on multiple projects in branding, digital/web and print. The Landing Hotel branding is the first BBG project to launch live, with a new Rush Street digital experience launching later this month.
This project uses Avondale Type Co.‘s sans serif font ATC Arquette, a typeface designed in-house, which is not only used for the physical signage for the hotel, but also throughout the brand.
Bright Bright Great is excited to share our design work created for Chicago’s Rush Street, the parent company for both the Rivers Casino and SugarHouse Casino.
BBG was tapped to assist branding the first hotel in the Rush Street portfolio.
