Isrotel Exclusive Collection: A separate branding strategy designed in order to distinguish between standard Isrotel hotels and the luxury, exclusive hotels of the franchise. Each luxury hotel has its own identity and sets of visual values which it comprises, the challenge is to preserve the luxury hotels as a series which work together but also differentiate from one another so that each hotel also stands on its own.

Bronze signage was used combing branches of Oren wood which are characteristic of the surrounding area. The branding follws the Exclusive Hotels brand line so that the hotel is painted the color of the wood, and the textures are comprised of unique elements which can be found in the Carmel Forest (like Oren wood and pinecones)- symbolizing the relationship between forest, spa and a secluded place.

Carmel Forest cookbook: The book displays the bestselling culinary recipes of the Carmel Forest Chef Amir Halfon. The book is filled with photos of the ambiance of the restaurant and estate with its unique styling.

Writing Editing and Production: Ester Shalev, Assistant Producer: Orit Baliti, Photography: Oded Marom; Styling: Dalit Russo.

Carmel Forest Spa Guide: A complete guide of the various spa treatments given at the estate in an iPad format, is a central part of the spa experience.

Art: The branding of the exhibition by the curator Sharon Tuval which took place on the estate grounds. The branding included a style guide for the different displays, signage of the works, and invitations for the various exhibitions.
