Ahiawa Chalets - Raglan New Zealand

Catherine Harrison - Saturday, June 28, 2014

Ahiawa Chalets are set in beautiful native bush on the edge of Raglan township in New Zealand. Owners Hayley Willers and Nick Bridge wanted a logo that incorporated the abundance of native bird life surrounding one of their beautifully built two person chalets. To include such detail in a logo was certainly a challenge - but I love the result! The stamp like logo portrays the chalets perfectly set within the peaceful bush. I can remember the sound of the stream running past my door and the birds tweeting "good morning" as I woke from a great nights sleep in their studio unit.

There are two chalets which both sleep two and there is also a studio unit which can sleep four. To book a relaxing weekend away or longer see this website

So far I have designed their business card and the sign for the road frontage. They had these business cards laminated so they look fantastic. The quality of the printing and paper stock is so important to a nicely finished business card. The contrast from the front to back of the card is nice a refreshing while looking professional and memorable.

For both the business card and signage we included a photo of the chalets because it shows the beautiful accommodation setting and because from the road all you can see is Hayley and Nicks house and office. Doesn't the logo look awesome in white on the transparent green.

I am still in the process of making their website and other promotional material but I will post as soon as I am done.Why wait? Book your next holiday in Raglan New Zealand at Ahiawa Chalets.
