Meaning and history

Kempinski Logo


The Kempinski logo celebrates the brand’s heritage as pioneers of luxury hospitality in Europe with a contemporary look and feel.
The Kempinski logo is an elegant calligraphic wordmark with its main accent on color.
‘Stellar blue’, a color formulated especially for the brand, is inspired by the constellation of remarkable properties the hospitality group is known for. A touch of gold and neutral cream complements the deep sophisticated blue while a secondary palette of reds, greens and blues add energy and vibrancy to in-room communications.
A bespoke headline typeface – ‘HeleneHess’, named as a tribute to the wife of Berthold Kempinski —  is an extensive latin serif font (with over 350 glyphs) that takes inspiration from the brand European Swiss-German roots. A custom-made sans-serif typeface improves legibility and brings visual unity to a wide portfolio of sub-brands, products and services.
