Creative Team: Gabriel Stromberg (art director/designer)
Client: Hotel Sorrento
Description: The Hotel Sorrento opened its doors in 1909, at the tail-end of Art Nouveau. In the last century this landmark has seen many changes, but has always remained a cultural hub with strong ties to Seattle’s literary community. The original woodwork and marble flooring that remain give the hotel a library feel. For inspiration we studied vintage publishing house colophons and matched a shade of green drawn from a vintage hardcover. The Sorrento attracts the movers and shakers from the arts community, patrons who dress to be seen and speak to be heard—evoking the spirit of a peacock.
