828 put the E in Love
Notice anything different at 68 Haywood St. in downtown Asheville? The Asheville Design Salon created a 156 sq. ft. mural to help liven up the place. Each letter of “Love Asheville” was created by a Salon member, and our letter is the first “E”. Big thanks to Jenny Fares and several Asheville City committees to help pull this off.
As part of rebranding Perfect Descent Climbing Systems, 828:design created product graphics for their line of Auto Belays.

Deltec Homes, Remodeled
828:design recently worked with high-performance and net-zero energy builder Deltec Homes to revitalize their identity and to launch a new print publication. The new identity is simple, modern, and reflects the nature of Deltec’s round home design niche, while also hearkening back to the origins of the company – a roof truss production line known as Delta Technology. The magazine “180°” is an informative piece that highlights many aspects of the company including: a history of the company, current news, featured Deltec owners, sustainable practices, building technologies, and more. The magazine allowed 828 to expand the visual language of the brand through the use of a secondary color palette, new accompanying typefaces, photo treatments, and unique page layouts… styling that can be woven into marketing pieces moving forward.
