Where in the World is Andy?

When Korn relaunched the DuVine brand into the world, we fully expected it to fly. What we didn’t expect is that it would ride, eat, and drink in life so voraciously. Andy Levine of DuVine Cycling + Adventure Co has been traveling around in his DuVine gear and blogging every step of the way- bringing the brand to a global stage. Andy is truly living the DuVine way. His amazing travels (and antics) always keep his thousands of newfound loyalists coming back for more. Check out DuVine, grab your bike, and get on the road!

This Way Forward!

Embodying the trailblazing spirit of Boston’s new Innovation District, The Envoy Hotel arrived in late June 2015 as a bold modern stamp of independence on the Waterfront District’s map. Korn Design led the charge, creating an immersive brand experience true to the Envoy’s abiding watchwords, “This Way Forward.” Part homage to the creative community that surrounds it, part ode to the inspirational neighborhood it calls home, The Envoy Hotel ascends—a new genre of hospitality cast in a very original way.

Winter on the Wharf under the Rotunda

It’s a Wonderful Winter on the Wharf

The Boston Harbor Hotel and Korn Design combine to provide Bostonians with the perfect remedy for the winter blues.

There’s no denying a Boston winter’s bombardment of blizzards and deep freezes. This weather makes it easy to forget why it’s called “the most wonderful time of the year.” Boston Harbor Hotel’s Winter on the Wharf does a good job reminding us of the joys to be had with a season filled with fun and festivities, including a fabulous skating rink under their iconic rotunda at Rowes Wharf.

Korn Design worked with the Boston Harbor Hotel to create an elegant visual identity that celebrates the season, through a hand-lettered logotype that flutters on a 50 ft. banner suspended above the rink. The typography was inspired the lace arabesques of skate tracks on ice. Korn also helped develop the season’s programming, produced a print ad and transformed the palette of offerings into a playful printed calendar distributed throughout the hotel and surrounding neighborhoods.

The first flakes turned Boston into a snow globe for Winter on the Wharf’s opening ceremony in December. Ribbon was cut, skaters took to the ice and Korn Design was in attendance to celebrate the season of events and the unveiling of the visual identity. With a backdrop like this, the spirits were as warm as the cocoa. The seasonal crowds and cocktails (and Santa!) filled the hotel with a festive coziness that is difficult to forget.

A Bone for Oak

The AIGA Boston chapter and New England’s design community come together to celebrate the best design in the region.

We’re incredibly proud to announce that we recently won a BoNE Show Award for our recent branding work for Oak Long Bar and Kitchen. Celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, the BoNE Show highlights the best work done throughout New England over the past two years. It’s an honor to be selected, and we had a ball seeing all the great work that our community creates.

In addition to the award for Oak, one of our designers—Steven Olimpio—won a BoNE in the student category for a poster that he created with Dave Tschiegg for Noertheastern University’s Department of Art & Design.

A4 Food Truck

We invited three local Boston grafitti artists to contribute greyscale art on which we would overlay our final yellow branded layer. It was so much fun to see the art evolve from one layer to the next.

Area Four’s food truck was a collaborative effort. Sean Lunsford, Cyrille Conan (Sir Ill) and Nick Z worked with us to take it from sketch to implementation on the road. The first layer laid down by Cyrille Conan was inspired by dazzle camouflage on ships during WWI. Follow along with @a4truck to visit them on the road.
