Top Peak didn’t only need a website, they needed a brand. Their target market is young and young-at-heart travelers who appreciate the tailor-made nature of a boutique travel agency. To speak to this demographic, Top Peak Travel Borneo needed a branding package displayed not only their expertise but also the fun-loving, DIY and adventurous vibe embody.
TOP PEAK TRAVEL BORNEO BRANDING

Using a combined twenty years of tourism experience, the owners of Top Peak Travel Borneo offer trips based on clients‘ time and interest’s from 5 star white sand beaches to tough but rewarding treks through the heart of the island.
TOP PEAK BORNEO BRANDING CONSIDERATIONS
Color plays an important role in viewers perception of a brand, and I wanted Top Peak Travel Borneo to pop! An irreverent and striking yellow and heavy slab font were used to make a bold impression. Pairing these elements with whimsical imagery and some vintage travel design formatting helped craft their memorable look.
Business cards are often the first introduction to a brand and the most personal way to spread contact information. I wanted this intro to be as unique and playful as the Top Peak Travel Borneo brand. To achieve this, I went with an irregular shape and size. The cards were made a little more square, a 4:3 aspect ratio, and feature a die cut notch mimicking the “peak” element in Top Peak’s logo.
This sense of play was rolled into all of Top Peak’s branding materials. A series of candy-colored t-shirts embody the brand. They mix hand-drawn illustrations with cheeky taglines that capture the offbeat and surprising nature of travel. A group of postcard graphics were created with the same ripped paper motif used for their website. I used Borneo-specific imagery was used for these rather than the lifestyle-centric images selected for their website. The project was rounded out with a design for a branded transportation van used to transport clients to and from airports and other destinations.
