Situated along the busy Kitale – Cherengany – Eldoret Highway, the resort is a large hacienda style building housing a sumptuous well-appointed lounge, reception, veranda bar and coffee shop as well as a 100 seater state of the art conference and board room.
Sirwo Resort is equipped with a modern kitchen that can cater for up to 2000 people. The well-manicured lawns that serve as events and wedding fields enjoy a magical view of the Cherengany Hills to the east and Mt. Elgon to the west.
The project required a logo design with a motif of an antelope a simple and identifiable mark that would allow the resort stand out. It was important that the logo is designed to attract ideal visitors to the resort.
The form on the antelope needed to be easily interpreted by any person. The typeface used also needed to be legible enough when used from a distance or scaled down to a small size. I explored various routes during the design phase, however, the strongest direction came when balancing the form of the antelope between type for the sense of balance.
