Seaboard Hospitality

Identity redesign, business collateral to include digital letterhead, email signature, cards, mailchimp template and website.
Seaboard Hospitality manages independent, top-rated hotels and vacation properties in coastal destinations. It is family-owned and operated, now in its fourth generation. LLcc is engaged to do all the design work for Seaboard’s properties, including Cooper Cottages and The Avenue Inn & Spa.

The Avenue Inn & Spa

Identity and website for the #1 TripAdvisor hotel in Rehoboth Beach, DE, #19 TripAdvisor Hotel in the U.S., and flagship property of Seaboard Hospitality.

I created the logo for this hotel around 10 years ago, replacing a hand-drawn signpost reading “The Avenue” with a symbol referencing both the avenue where the hotel is sited and its proximity to the beach. You can see the play between Rehoboth Avenue and the logo symbol in the site’s opening video, which I cobbed together from existing footage.

Cooper Cottages

Cooper Cottages were built in the 1930s and have been lovingly maintained over almost a century by three generations of the Cooper family. They are one of the last surviving examples of how vacationers first enjoyed the beaches of Rehoboth Beach, DE.

Reopened in July 2021, the cottages underwent a complete renovation designed to bring together the best in coastal comfort, the quaintness of the beach community, and mid-century vintage accents that honor the legacy of these historic cottages.

The brand captures the coastal location with a stylized, upscale vintage appeal in line with the renovations. In its simplicity, it evokes a nostalgia for the carefree days of less troubled times. The colors were drawn from the decor, which drew inspiration from vintage postcards of the area.

The website delivers a rich brand experience. It took its first booking while the site was still in development.
