Loot is a surf and lifestyle store retailing distinctive products for a modern and global consumer and offers an alternative to the more commercial items from retailers typically found in its touristic location in the Mexican city of Zihuatanejo. Loot’s brand identity, designed by Savvy, draws its character and distinction from Zihuatanejo’s past as a hotspot for pirates, and visualised as a combination of regional historical elements and modern pop culture, allowing it to be relevant to both the local community and international shoppers.
KITTE, a play on the Japanese word “kitte” literally meaning “postage stamp” in English, is a new seven-floor restaurant and retail destination located in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district that opened its doors on March 21st, 2013. Housed within JP Tower—the site of the landmark central post office building—KITTE will play an instrumental role in revamping the historic area as the first commercial facility of the now privately held Japan Post company.
