Mama Shelter
GBH
Lyam Bewry:

Rediscovered this project by GBH (now Our Friends) from 2012 for Mama Shelter, a chic, eclectic hotel group with an 'off-beat vibe'.

The branding takes an unconventional approach. Playing off the name “Mama”, a hen is used as a marque where the space between its legs form the shape of an egg. Hen imagery is carried though to other collateral, including leg tags for each location.
