THE brief

A new brand for a startup making its entrance in the vacation rental industry — As the art director, I helped them build from scratch, a brand and site experience that elevate their offer and their story.

the result

Hostaway is a Canadian company with Finnish roots and with that in mind, I came up with the concept of combining Scandinavian patterns with flat iconography.

Hostaway Website

Throughout the website, you will see a series of icons and colour palettes that are introduced to make the site meet the WCAG standards. The visuals and tone of the website also suggests a more informal and friendly tone. I also made sure the site was entirely responsive and could provide the same experience you get on the web.

How-to Series

The Hostaway Youtube channel was lacking content and the was first of many How-To series. The video used to serve the on-boarding team as well as help promote new features.


The Complete Guide to Starting & Growing a Vacation Rental Business

The guide was created for the purposes of getting more leads through our social platform. The visual style of the e-book still carries the Hostaway brand but with a more cleaner look, almost like a high-end travel and lifestyle magazine.


Company Core Values

When an organization grows, the core values change to accommodate the diversity of the team members. With the core values refined by the ELT, canvas and posters were made to hang in the offices around the world.
