Point of View

Blackberry Farm / Set Wallcovering Systems

From where we sit, great design solutions derive from a thorough understanding of the client’s customer. In creating a new brand identity, marketing strategy and messaging for Blackberry Farm, Grant conducted qualitative interviews with past guests and discovered their favorite resort amenity was sitting in the rocking chairs to admire the Smoky Mountain vistas. Grant’s rebranding program helped Blackberry Farm increase its occupancy rates to over 90% year round. In creating a new brand and all of the product design for Set Wallcovering Systems, we surveyed architects and designers to develop a new approach which earned Grant a Best of NeoCon Gold Award for product design.

Design Applications

ACT / Jaipur

The Association for Contract Textiles (ACT) retained Grant Design Collaborative to increase its awareness among millennials, and we responded with an identity update, an ACT Now! advertising campaign, and a mobile app that featured performance guidelines, glossary of textile terms and web links to all ACT members. Grant has also applied its design thinking and pattern development to create several product collections for Jaipur Rugs, including the top selling rug design in the company’s history.

Holistic Thinking

Benson / Decca

Grant Design Collaborative has worked with Benson for several years. As a highly successful apartment marketing company, Benson experiences rapid growth and evolving branding needs. From a strategic brand road map to interior design and environmental graphics for their new headquarters, Grant works closely with Benson’s senior management to fuel their ongoing success. High-end furniture manufacturer, Decca, retained Grant to rebrand and align its four US divisions. Comprehensive marketing support of the brands has included identity design, showroom consultation, catalogs, website design, public relations and social media.

Dollars and Sense

Muzak / SignatureFD

How do you elevate Muzak? Grant Design Collaborative did it with an innovative exhibit design and promotional materials for the world’s largest retail trade show, GlobalShop. Grant’s exhibit attracted show attendees with new props and sensory perceptions each day of the event, earning our firm a Best of Show for exhibit design. From elevator music to wealth management, great design is good business. That’s why SignatureFD in Atlanta retained Grant to rename their successful firm, create a strategic road map for the future, design a new identity and develop marketing collateral to showcase their signature approach to wealth with purpose.
