PALMS / FROM DUST TO GOLD


Destroy the old. Create the new.




Undergoing a complete renovation, the Palms Las Vegas resort faced a challenge: to bring guests to a property under construction. Instead of shying away from it, we embraced the demolition of Palms’ storied past to build anticipation for the progress of the new property unfolding every day.

To bring the idea to life, we partnered with Damien Hirst, REVOK, Academy Award-winning cinematographer Linus Sandgren and legendary director Paul Hunter.

GOLD VANDALISM

Embracing its work-in-progress state, we created a new visual ethos to embody the hotel trasnformation. Gold Vandalism utilizes strikes of gold spray paint as a mean to disrupt the elegant black type — subverting, highlighting or transforming the significance of each headline.
