The Walper Hotel
branding, wayfinding signage, brochures, exterior signage, elevator wraps, room key cards, illustration
The Walper Hotel is an iconic 1893 landmark at the epicentre of one of Kitchener’s oldest neighbourhoods. When the Walper Hotels was completely renovated in 2016 the management team reached out to REES + STAGER to create a vibrant brand story that would captivate the hotel's amazing past while also highlighting its contemporary flare.
Building that brand story included website copy, wedding & conference brochures, grand opening invitation and social contest, wayfinding signage, street front window decals, elevator wraps, advertisements, key & gift cards and custom illustrations. Years later each piece still feels fresh, vibrant and relevant!
I know you told me I’m not allowed to try to steal Tanya, but you hopefully have not forbidden me from expressing my gratitude. I hope I thank her enough directly as well, but want to make sure you know just how great I think she is.
