Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has unveiled a new direction for the Ramada Encore by Wyndham brand globally.

At the heart of this new identity is a brand promise to be “Refreshingly Different”, which is underpinned by the brand’s core attributes of being fresh, approachable and vibrant. This new identity includes a redesigned and re-imagined logo, created by London-based marketing agency Octopus Group, and prototype designs for guest rooms and common spaces designed by hospitality architecture firm Harrison.

Ramada Encore by Wyndham is a portfolio of 54 hotels in 20 countries around the world. The brand was created in the late 1990s as a limited service mid-scale hotel brand designed for business and leisure travellers who were looking for great value in a simple and smart hotel. At the time of its launch, the brand introduced concepts, including guest rooms with all wood flooring and an open plan, multi-purpose common area that serves as a reception, lobby, casual dining and networking space.

Core to the new creative identity for the brand is a logo re-design, aimed at modernising the visual representation of the brand and appealing to a new generation of travellers. The multi-coloured “E” mark was designed to reflect continual movement through the rotation of the letter, symbolising “to return” – the definition of the word encore. In addition, the brand has received an all new colour palette.

Beyond the visual identity and logo, new prototype designs for public areas and guestrooms are also being introduced. 

“Whether it’s a business trip or a weekend break, we know that for travellers every minute counts. That’s why we wanted the brand identity for Ramada Encore to reflect its position as a hotel for guests on the go,” said Lisa Checchio, chief marketing officer for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “

Ramada Encore is a place where travellers can relax, refresh and connect – both online and offline. Our innovative common spaces and personalised touches demonstrate that we are thinking of what’s next, so they don’t have to,”she added.
