THE PARKER PALM SPRINGS - DESIGN STUDY

THE PARKER PALM SPRINGS - DESIGN STUDY

shl_parker_hotel_palm_springs_20130429.jpg

This is my  "design study part I" of the Parker Palm Springs.  I am the kind of design fan that can spend HOURS quietly exploring an environment that has moved me and study it in as much detail as I can. I will photograph things, sketch others and of course ask staff for little 'momentos'.  They make fun souvieniers. 

I will observe and observe:  color and texture selection, furnishings, light placement, graphic design elements, space organization, etc.... They did a great job with all that at this hotel and you sense that the minute you arrive on the property (which used to be Gene Autry's ranch).  I believe Jonathan Adler is responsible for most of everything I was ooooing and ahhhhing at, he really rocked it.

I'm highlighting the graphics element in this post because I often struggle to explain to clients the importance of 'consistency of a visual story' whether in a photo series or brand collateral or anything else really.  So, I started documenting visual stories done well to assist in illustrating my point and collecting inspiration.  The subconscious impact of thoughtful design always leaves a lingering impression, I love that ♡ Enjoy!

p/s... I am revising my 'about' page for this blog.  People who know me have said what I have is kind of limited.  I think that is because i tend to be shy, but I am trying to move beyond that.  If you have ideas/suggestions about what I should include on that page, please send them my way.  Merci!

Feathers!
