strukture_typeface1 strukture_poster

Strukture designed by Bonnie Cheng.

“Strukture is a typeface design best used as a display font in a medium to large size; suitable for posters and headings.

Each letter is designed with a simplified form, contrasting solid shapes to light line formations, giving the typeface a structural quality.”

Packages That Pop: The Dean Hotel

There is not a single detail missed at The Dean Hotel in Providence, RI. Every bit of the hotel is consistently decorated and features the hotels logo or else a witty one liner or vintage style portrait.

From their website:

“If you’re like me and enjoy a solid art history debate, a perfectly fluffed white duvet, a scotch – neat, (and after a few too many) a wee bit of karaoke, then The Dean is a place for you. Built around the history and culture of Providence, The Dean is a hotel that values collaboration with our neighbors. Filled with custom furniture, craftwork from local purveyors and found objects from Europe and beyond, The Dean revels in the details. This historical building has been elegantly transformed into a 52-room hotel in the heart of the Providence’s Downcity historic district. Come visit The Dean, we can’t wait to see you.”
