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.

Branded Collateral

“They call it Brand Camp, but it could have been called  Brand Therapy. The ladies at Four Fin went the extra mile to help me identify our company’s core values and ethos, building the brand from the inside out.”

– David Allen, CEO / Founding Principle of Trestle Build

  •  I grew up in a scuba diving family. I cried underwater when I failed my test when I was 10. Getting water out of your mask is one of the test categories. Yes, I got my license in the end.
    • I used to train to ride horses. One time, I got stepped on by a horse and I screamed, but forgot to push it away. My toe was ok tho.
    • Used to want to be a fine art artist but instead doing murals as side hustle nowadays.
