The Riverside Inn • 

The historic Riverside Inn has a longstanding history as a hub to the village of Leland. As we approached the brand refresh, we wanted this rich history to be honored in an identity that was nostalgic, familiar and warm. One where memories were cherished, but space was created for an exciting new chapter.

As The Riverside Inn enters their 120th season, we're delighted for visitors to experience what makes this Leland landmark so special before they even set foot on the dock, through a refreshed brand and website that truly honors this legacy and sets the tone for the next 120 years of history to be made.

The Identity

"I had the pleasure of working closely with Chelsea on the full rebranding of a charming historic inn and fine dining restaurant. From the very start, it was clear that Chelsea brought an incredible level of dedication and expertise to the table.

Chelsea not only conducted thorough research and took the time to understand the nuances of a project with deep history and ties to the community, but also demonstrated a remarkable ability to translate it into actionable insights. This commitment to detail and understanding of the project's nuances were invaluable in achieving a brand and website that felt fresh while artfully honoring the brand's history and place in the community.

One of Chelsea's standout qualities is her unwavering trustworthiness. You can always count on her to not only meet but consistently exceed expectations. Her professionalism is evident in every interaction, making her an absolute pleasure to work with.

What truly sets Chelsea apart is her remarkable ability to consistently deliver amazing outcomes. The results she achieved on this project were nothing short of outstanding, leaving a lasting positive impact on the business and effectively maintaining the legacy clientele while attracting a new generation of customers and guests.

I wholeheartedly recommend Heuss Design for any project. Chelsea's combination of research prowess, trustworthiness, professionalism, experience, raw talent, and ability to produce exceptional results make her an invaluable asset to any team."
