Big’s Bend

An identity steeped in history and nature for a rustic Texas retreat

A rustic retreat with a 19th-century pioneer history, Big’s Bend is nestled on a bend of the Colorado River. fd2s created a distinct graphic identity that would work across a variety of corporate and recreational contexts for destination. fd2s was inspired by the retreat’s beautiful natural setting and its 1850’s frontier history. The brand identity was drawn from this inspiration and and the family patriarch’s nickname, addressing the varied purposes of the site, appealing to both meeting and wedding guests. The 50-acre property in Double Horn, Texas, located just 35-miles west of Austin, includes a performance stage, Airstream bridal suite, swimming hole, hilltop deck, native plant garden, and barn made of reclaimed wood.
