Jungle 1 - Concrete 0
The jungle wins at 1180. From fresh air and fresh ideas outside to retreat-like spaces for thoughtful collaboration inside, the reimagined 1180 provides an enlightened office opportunity.
The bold new lobby, a series of outdoor terraces, and the ultimate penthouse amenities center create an inviting, contemporary space–and more importantly, the rare opportunity to be different. LLM Design’s marketing campaign reintroduces 1180 to the market as the unique Midtown gem it was always meant to be.

The marketing campaign we developed repositions 1180 as a unique, modern Class A office space in New York City. With loads of terraces and sleek new spaces for collaboration, the building brand is all about fresh, clean lines with occasional bursts of bright, unexpected color to reflect that genuine urban experience.
LLM Design commissioned Cale Griffith, a New York graffiti artist, to create an art installation for the marketing center. He used the brand’s bright green color as inspiration for his mural, bringing color and pop to what was formerly a large expanse of grey wall. The installation is comprised of a pattern of bold colors, playing off the geometric connection with 1180’s logo to reinforce the modern, urban vibe.

A Green Space to Make Your Mark
The visual identity was inspired by the architectural structure of the roof decks soon to be on each floor. The green corner accent is, you guessed it, a nod to the new green space and fresh air on the terraces.
Embrace the Pace
New York City. Move fast, or it will move you. And while most New Yorkers thrive on chaos, we wanted to tell a different New York story–a story of a different kind of building, where thrive is welcome but chaos stops at the door. Meet 1180.
LLM Design created a collaborative and open environment for all of us working to reposition and market 1180 A of A. From the initial brainstorms and creative sessions to the last site visits, the process was well managed and inclusive. The LLM team listened, encouraged feedback, fostered collaboration and came up with creative solutions that made it clear they had heard and understood our needs. The end result is a marketing campaign that has already proven effective.

These neighborhood photography shoots were carefully planned, scouted, and executed so we got just the right shots to support the brand.
