Find Inspiration in Everything
Collaborations with a wide range of design experts—from architects to graffiti artists to fashion designers—are a key aspect that sets this company apart. To reflect this spirited history of design partnership, we conducted a series of visual experiments. These outcomes formed the backdrop of our visual narrative.

Every Thread Tells 1,000 Stories
We anchored the core identity in crisp, confident black and white, which allows the product to take center stage.
To capture the essence of Royal Thai’s color expertise, we introduced an additional trend palette. As the product design evolves, so do the supplemental trend swatches. This flexibility creates an analogous relationship between the brand and its material.
The brand developed into a layered, textured identity, with transitioning colors and custom patterns in artistic strokes. Pieces of original art themselves, these abstract patterns lend themselves to background texture or can serve as a primary focus, standing on their own.
Use of spacious layouts and plentiful breathing room lifts the brand out of the carpet space, befitting a reputed global design house. To echo Royal Thai’s flexibility in customizable carpet design, we provided an endlessly imagined set of moving parts, to grow with the company as they continue to tell stories in thread.
