Destrehan Plantation Logo
Destrehan Plantation is a historic site located a short drive outside of New Orleans. It offers guided tours of the beautifully restored plantation house, home to a few important names in Louisiana history.
Visitors also get to explore the verdant grounds featuring a collection of 200-year-old live oak trees, see historic exhibits, and witness period demonstrations.
For many years Destrehan Plantation operated without a logo for their non-profit organization. My goal was to design a much needed logo. They wanted it to be elegant yet modern, and it should also reflect their history. I chose to highlight its history by illustrating the portrait of Jean Noel Destrehan, the house’s former owner and an important political figure in early Louisiana politics.
