Palestra (from Greek Παλαίστρα) — is a private gymnastics school in ancient Greece. Generally speaking, this word was used as an institution in which young people tended to learn different kinds of sports. In modern Italy, the word has a common usage, which means “gym”. The core concept contains the idea of inclusion of the Greek letter "λ” (lambda) in logotype and usage of this letter as a logo itself.
We have been developing interior branding aligned with S&T architects agency. As the architects created the overall design, we focused on implementing corporate identity elements in the specific spaces and locations.
Combining Greek roots and modern sports aesthetics can be traced in the style elements.
The rough texture of materials, bright dominant color, dynamic handwritten font, and motivational phrases.
In addition to all printed materials (business cards, club cards, price lists, gift certificates, flyers) we also have fully branded the stationery of the club-restaurant.
Ancient modern Greeks
The key figures of corporate identity are taken from classic images of ancient Greek sculptures: Discobolus of Myron, Boxer of the Quirinal and the Aphrodite of Capua. We also added a number of various fitness accessories to the statues, thus linking the aesthetics of ancient classics and contemporary.
