Project Overview

Lizard Island is an exclusive haven of unspoiled beauty positioned on The Great Barrier Reef. Created for those with champagne tastes on champagne budgets, the resort needed a brand identity that reflected its brand positioning.
Using water colour, we developed a brand symbol that described the island - a green oasis fringed with pristine white beaches and crystal clear water.

Project Brief

Our brief was to develop an identity that reflected the brands positioning and its personality - beautiful, understated, elegant, natural and relaxed.

Project Need

Lizard Islands old identity was dated and didn’t reflect the brands positioning or personality.

Design Challenge

The design challenge was to develop a brand identity that had the flexibility to work across a broad range of communications from business cards to signage and advertising.
