Challenges

Trestle was preparing the launch of one of its first highly visible housing projects and recognized the existing brand was falling short in articulating its purpose and promise, not only externally across communications, but within the growing organization itself.

Solution

During Brand Camp, we uncovered the core concept behind Trestle’s existence – Accessible Urbanism. The company is truly broadening urban accessibility to residents from a wider range of income levels and we wanted to make sure the brand celebrated this feat.

We refreshed the Trestle visual identity to better align with this foundational concept and created a visual style guide, sketched wireframes, and copy queues for their web development team to quickly implement.

Accessible urbanism with a human approach.
