Combining movement and action with a sense of sophistication, the visual expression of the brand signaled the energy and style of a bustling metropolis.
In line with the brand strategy, a new brand identity is crafted with four ‘zone bars’ subtly form the letters ‘E’ and ‘C’ in the brand name and the teal colour marks the location on the Saigon River. These horizontal bars also represent each of the four real estate components (residential, office, retail, hospitality) of the integrated development.
Compelling marketing collaterals were created for different phases of the development including Tilia, Linden and Cove.
Bespoke on-brand branded merchandises together with sales gallery, basement experience design helped ensure a cohesive Empire City brand experience.
A community app has been designed to help engage with the residents.
