After previously working for their sister hostel Budget Backpackers, we were invited to create masses of work for their new business the Kick Ass Hostel in Edinburgh’s historical Grassmarket. We went with a fun but professional feel throughout, mixing clean typography with friendly fonts and some crazy illustrations! The designs all crossed classic design elements to suit the history of the city and the area itself, with fresh modern design to fit the younger clientele and the welcoming mood of the company.
This page shows the illustrative artworks we created to liven up the walls of the building. They cross vintage engraving artwork with modern colorful design elements to present a fun youthful mood throughout. Often using classic travel or Scottish themes twisted with the fresh and the new. They were great fun to do, and the ‘anything goes’ attitude of the client facilitated some great pieces.
We did a lot more design work throughout the venue and other elements can be found elsewere on this site or via the links below.
