Working as a freelancer for dfine Branding, I created an icon, logo, and color palette option for Highlands Ranch Historic Park & Mansion. The icon is based on a lantern that sits atop the Highlands Ranch front gate. Whether it’s a stop on a walking tour or the backdrop behind a wedding photo shoot, the gate and lanterns are a focal point of the mansion. This concept combines the timeless elegance of that gate with a classic serif type and an approachably modern sans serif. Like the type, the color palette—warm neutrals with pops of green and orange—captures HRM’s commitment to being both historic and inviting.
