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 enchanting 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.
Our task was to design a much needed logo. They wanted it to be elegant yet modern, and it should also reflect their history. We chose to highlight its history by illustrating the portrait of Jean Noel Destrehan, the former owner and political figure that it was named after, and incorporate this into their new logo.
