OVERVIEW

Gatheringでは2009年のブランド設立時よりレディースブランド「Bed&Breakfast」のブランディング、コンサルティング、デザインを担当しています。
Bed and Breakfast is a Tokyo based contemporary life style clothing brand which favours classic simplicity, understated detail, precise finishes and minimalist lines, shapes and materials. 
Gathering  recently worked with B&B to develop a visual identity for expanding collection. Built around a customised logotype and a simple print and packaging treatment that uses few but good quality and contrasting paper and print choices, the solution reflects the key aesthetic and design values that run throughout B&B.

BRAND IDENTITY

This logo is the central element in Bed&Breakfast’s visual communications system. 
Through consistent and repetitive use as a signature device and design element in all of Bed&Breakfast’s visual communications, the logo becomes a visual shorthand which identifies the Agency and symbolically embodies its activities, achievements and goals.
The logo should never be altered or distorted in any way. It must not be re-drawn, but rather reproduced photographically from reproduction artwork included in this manual.
COLOR SCHEME

The correct color for use in the Bed&Breakfast logo is shown below. Bed&Breakfast black should be used only when second color is available and appropriate.
 It is intended to be used only on white or a light value netural color backgroud. black should not be used with other bright  saturated colors, or medium and dark value colors, as they will dilute the effectiveness and impact of the black.Further guidance for the use of the logo in various color situations is contained on  manual.
