See the world the Wilde way

A new manifesto film, written by KesselsKramer London and brought to life by the team at Dosed, celebrates the beauty in the everyday.


The film marks the official launch of the new Wilde aparthotel identity by KesselsKramer London, which also goes live this week.

Marking a separation from its sister aparthotel brand, staycity, the visual identity and TOV are inspired by the wit and wisdom of the brand’s namesake, Oscar Wilde, with the objective of becoming the leader in this fastest growing category in the hospitality world.

The new brand, and this accompanying film, invites you to discover the hidden details in life, especially as you travel to the cities across the UK and Europe that Wilde calls home.

The film is a celebration of these moments of everyday aestheticism. Shot entirely in camera, key words and phrases from the launch manifesto were made and captured in everyday situations, from handpainted signs to embossed books and panniers, postcards to graffiti.

Vangeli Moschopoulos, senior creative at KesselsKramer, says, "it was important to us that we shot the elements in camera, and that they were up to a standard that reflected the luxury and attention to detail that are a part of the brand’s DNA. This meant sourcing and creating a huge range of props in a short space of time, but the final result makes the dashing around worth it."

The film will go live across the brand’s social channels and on their new website, designed by that is due to launch on the 13th December.

As well as launching their new Wilde brand, KesselsKramer also rebranded the holding company, staycity group, and its original aparthotel brand, staycity, with new visual and verbal identities for all going live this week.
