Behind the Scenes of Windstar’s Logo Transformation

1 Shares / 6 Tweets / 0 Repins

New yachts and new destinations aren’t the only things changing at Windstar. Yes, we’ve changed our logo!  So why did we do that?

In short, as Windstar continues to expand and redefine itself, we wanted a fresh new look that put greater emphasis on the Windstar name in a classy, yet contemporary style.

Inspired by our continued commitment to unique and intimate luxury travel, the new logo dramatizes Windstar’s casually elegant, yacht style experience in the cruise industry.

We made the move from a sans serif typeface to serif typeface to reflect a more elegant look that aligns with the traditions of hospitality and grace that are core to Windstar’s guest experience. The flourish and the star are informal design elements that represent the water, the breeze and the clear nights experienced on a Windstar voyage. The type’s dark blue color is a gesture to the expansive and intriguing waters of the world, with the light blue as a symbol of the open sky. Together, these elements embody the Windstar brand essence.

The logo change is part of a comprehensive plan to refine marketing communications including a new web site later this year. The first yacht transformed with the new logo is the new Star Pride departing on its maiden voyage May 5, 2014 from Barcelona, Spain.

Here’s a peak at some of the places where the new logo is popping up …

    I love the new logo – but there’s a part of me that is sad the old one is gone as it’s attached to lots of shirts with lots ot memories of great adventures. However now I get to move to new memories and a new yacht come July.

    Sorry, disappointed with new look.

    Unfortunately its always easier to be a critic than a fan on the internet. While the existing logo was used in a tired manner. A simple rethink and re-application of the existing logo type likely would have achieved more of your goals than the new logo does. There was a classic (not classy) understated elegance to the existing typography that was unique amongst Cruise brands. Now the new logo feels bland generic. It feels like it came out of an in-house design team without much inspiration. It fails to even meet the level of design presentation the current Windstar websites, pages, brochures etc—which is quite high quality. Not sure what went wrong. But I guess it is classy—which ironically in current usage the word or term ‘classy’ suggests its mocking class itself.
