Arrive Hotel

Art | Branding | Print

With a flagship in Palm Springs and other locations underway in LA, Wilmington, Memphis and Phoenix, the East Austin location was the 3rd of this hotel and restaurant group. ELD on-boarded the Arrive team with everything ‘Austin’ and even deeper, ‘The East Side’. Drawing inspiration from the color, diversity, activity and history of the area, we set out to create art and design materials in line with the brand… adding our local flavor. As one of the first hotels to find a home in East Austin, we aimed to embody the neighborhood – a place that celebrates the spirit of this fine city and its creative class.

Upon hotel check-in, guests are presented with an ELD crafted field guide featuring several custom illustrations that support the neighborhood info and entertainment recommendations listed within. Neatly fitted into the guide is a keyholder pocket and custom room key card.

Additionally, ELD owner Sarah Presson created 30 collage pieces turned fine art prints to showcase in all guest rooms and lobby, as well as the image featured on each plastic key card. See her full collection at
