Will&Co.

Will&Co.

CANADev, 2020

Located in the heart of Allentown, Pennsylvania’s business district, Will&Co. is a food hall concept, a space where people can gather over good food, local crafts, and a shared culture. 

Ashton’s approach in developing its brand Is rooted on the history of its location. As it used to be the center of commerce and cultural experiences, we found it fitting to  draw inspiration from the people of Allentown: people who established the city including its founder William Allen, and people who are building its community today—proposing the name Will&Co.

Will&Co. was envisioned to be a visual blend of old and new. We gathered imagery and typography popular in the 1800s during the craft and artisan movement.

The identity’s focal point is the ampersand, the visual and symbolic link between people of the past and the present. It is predominantly used in the messaging strategy, expanding on the Co.'s meaning in an engaging way.
