Gold block foil black business card design by Face for luxury Mexican property development Highpark

Highpark is a new residential project located in the middle of San Pedro Garza García and described by Face – the agency behind the development’s visual identity, print work and website – as ‘arguably one of Latin America’s most affluent municipalities’ and widely credited as an “architectural masterpiece”.

Face go on to say that the “project needed to speak volumes about the brand’s commitment to creativity, sophistication, and quality of lifestyle. It was conceived by superstar Mexican architect Michel Rojkind, and envisioned as an urban development of luxury residences in northern Mexico’s most exclusive corner.” As such Face created a “clean, polished, unobtrusive aesthetic designed to beautifully showcase the project, using sharp, classic typography, and the fool-proof duo of black and gold.”

While perhaps, in a period of global austerity, the language choice lacks subtlety, the gold foil across black dyed substrate works really well to leverage established perceptions of exclusive luxury with an appropriate restraint. A logo-type constructed from tall, uppercase and broadly spaced sans serif letter-forms – its convention improved by a foil treatment across the collateral – deliver a high-rise authority alongside the more traditional character of a classic serif and a neat, understated but contemporary, single stroke weight HP monogram. The uncoated material choices, surface textures, layouts, binding and heavy borders of the brochure – framing the development with a look-book quality – introduces a high fashion, editorial sensibility that adds a little more depth to the familiar aspects of the print finish.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
