I rendered creative direction and design in this rebranding project for Bangalore based Octave Hotel, which was formerly known as Vishwaratna Hotel. This project was aimed to give a makeover to the family-run boutique hotel, in order to create a more modern, adaptable and a very reliable perception for today's business traveler.

Octave stands for the interval between series of 8 musical tones where every note doubles in frequency. The Octave relationship is referred to as the 'basic miracle of music', also called the Solfége – Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do, the Western counterpart of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa. Taking this musical inference further, I created a schematic replica of the Wind Chime – the most intrinsic source of music that plays by itself or with the help of the wind. The 8 dots represent 8 chimes, which translate to the '8 musical tones'. I arranged the 8 dots around 'O' for Octave to be the striker which is triggered by the wind, and which further leads to a chain-reaction of very soothing and comforting sounds of music. This structure follows suit with that of an actual wind chime when it is viewed from below. The website for Octave can be viewed here: www.octavehotels.com

I also created Octave's Brochure, Website, Business Card, and various collaterals for different campaigns. The collaterals can be viewed here: www.BKsuru.com/octave-campaigns
