Pyott Design is designing graphics for another luxury housing development in Portugal.
The project, which is called Monte Da Quinta, is a new 25ha resort in the Algarve. Pyott was initially commissioned to design the resort’s identity and is currently working on site signage and restaurant graphics.
Monte Da Quinta, which is Pyott’s third project in Portugal, is being masterplanned and designed by Brazilian architect Julio Neves. The resort is split into two areas; a main 128 apartment hotel and a housing complex set within the grounds of a golf club.
“Our logo is based on the three initials of MDQ and we’ve combined them to produce what we believe is a clever play on letters which creates a memorable mark,” says consultancy founder James Pyott.
“We’ve chosen spicy colours held by a very dark navy blue background. This makes it a very distinctive and up-market identity within the Algarve, where all the other identities have garish GMTV-style colour palettes,” he adds.
The project is due to be completed in spring 1997. Pyott won the project on the strength of previous work for the same client for the Belas resort signage scheme (Design Week 22 September).
The consultancy has also been commissioned to work on a brochure for City headhunter Armstrong International.
