Situated on the east coast of Miyako Island in Japan, The Rescape is a hideaway hotel that offers a quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life. Beautifully situated on a beach, we wanted to celebrate the beauty and serenity of the location with a fitting wordmark and typeface. We crafted the bespoke typeface 'Ushio' for the project, the characters of which are bold and robust, eroding and becoming smoother and more rounded as time passes, reflecting characteristics of pebbles, glass, seashells and driftwood softened by the surrounding ocean.
