Chateau La Jolla Retirement Community

Chateau La Jolla needed a new identity and integrated brand. We were given the opportunity to create everything from scratch. The challenge was to create a unique way to represent this affordable retirement community on the coast of La Jolla California.

Logo Development

The name of the business references a place to live, a retreat if you will. In a more general sense, the term "Chateau" speaks to a retreat on the coast. This led us to develop a logo that integrated both community and coastal into the mark. We ultimately arrived at a logo that encapsulated the feeling of being inside of a coastal community by placing the name within the logo. We also developed a tagline that conveyed a message of aging gracefully, along the coastline, "A Vibrant Coastal Living Community" and added, redefine aging, after all, that is the essence of today's retiree!
