Escape from The City to Manzanita

Escape from The City to Manzanita


Almost ten years ago, we re-branded a boutique lodging business on the Oregon Coast. We matched the beautiful design aesthetic found all throughout their accommodations with a new brand and logo. Ten years later the brand still lives strong as does the brochure, notepads for the rooms, pens, and website. You can view some of that work here.

Loyal visitors of Coast Cabins understand how unique and relaxing this hidden gem on the Oregon Coast truly is. It’s a place where you really do “get away from it all” – enjoying the tranquil beauty of bamboo, luxury amenities, hot tubs, and nature that is intertwined into each accommodation.

Manzanita, Oregon is a favorite beach town for many. It has it all… a spa, a local pub, a great coffee shop, an organic market and just enough places to dine out if you chose. The beach has long stretches of white sand, and the views of Neahkahnie Mountain are breathtaking. There are also many great places to fish in the nearby rivers, crab in the bay or dig for clams!

I had the pleasure of taking some downtime to work remote and enjoy Condo 9 for a few days and Cabin 3. Sometimes the best creative work comes from working remotely in a different environment. This helps us get inspired, reflect to make changes, or simply slow down from the regular busy-ness of everyday life. I created this video to showcase how quickly you can go from city life to coastal life in just under two hours.

The video captures an authentic experience of driving to the coast, picking up the keys in anticipation of somewhere new, and discovering all the little surprises the week presented. Brands are best experienced through the user's eyes. Although an identity and website can help give a preview of the experience, the true essence is captured by living the brand and feeling the details of a genuine brand promise. For Coast Cabins, that's boutique lodging on the Oregon Coast – and they deliver it in every detail. The quality in their hospitality is reflected in each inch of this unique property.

The Coast Cabins logo and supporting branded materials, have a luxurious classic look that has remained strong for the past ten years.

We also designed the branding for their sister company, a local gym called Fit Manzanita, which all Coast Cabins guests have access to.
