  • Morphose Mountain Retreat

The owners of Morphose (a mountain retreat located in Southern Costa Rica) wanted their logo to be the color of the blue morpho butterfly, inspired by Balinese art (as was their architecture), and the abundant flora and fauna of their jungle surroundings. The logo needed to be general enough to represent their diverse offerings, which include a restaurant, vacation rental home, properties for sale, and adventure excursions.

Drawing stylistic inspiration from traditional Balinese paintings, and the custom wall sculptures the owners had imported from Bali, this logo represents the beauty and abundance a visitor will encounter upon arrival at the Morphose Retreat. The feeding hummingbird gives a subtle nod to the restaurant, which is their main attraction.
