In 2010 CreativeRoots featured the identity of the Grad Palace (Wat phra kaew) in Bangkok, Thailand for the first time. Since then the identity has developed and new images have appeared. The Grand Palace was built by King Rama I and is one of Thailand’s most significant architectural buildings. The complex houses some incredible paintings and sculptures that represent Thai culture and are worthwhile a visit. From the identity I really a like the signage system and the icons of the palace. Each and everyone one of them has a Thai aspect about it that represents a part of Thai Culture. For example the “Go right” or “Go left” signs are represented by a pointing hand. The way the hand is drawn is very common in Thai folklore paintings this also applies to the cloud icon. Bangkok designer Chatchonok Wongvachara was one of the designers who designed the identity.
