Client

Château Perché is a techno music festival occuring each year in a different french castle.

01. Concept

Château Perché provides a unique experience and deserves an identity that reveal its core brand personality.

I first defined key attributes of the brand regarding its culture, users, voice, benefits and values.

I then picked and named my main direction for the project: « The creative faith ».

A moodboard helped me to translate visually my 
previous analysis.

The first thing I want to show the extravagant side of this festival and its audience. Château Perché also have a mystical voice which I wanted to insist on in order to create something close to a spiritual experience.

Stylescape

This stylescape made the art direction clearer and helped me a lot staying consistent for the rest of the project.

The logo is often my point of reference in terms of decision making, at this point I spend a bit of time ideating and sketching before diving in production phase.

03. Production

There’s only a few days left to produce final guidelines and brand collaterals, but thanks to my previous ideation work everything goes on pretty smoothly and fast.

In the end I produced a short brand book containing the essential of the brand identity (logo system, colors, fonts, tone of voice and imagery) a simple web page and a few mockups.
