Basecamp Explorer is a different kind of travel company that accompanies its customers to the furthermost corners of the earth, enabling them to enjoy some of earth´s most picturesque and breathtaking experiences — be it an excursion to an arctic glacier or a safari adventure in the heart of the Kenyan savannah. The identity captures the core essence of the company through the use of a flag as the common denominator between its different destinations, thus uniting them under “one nation”. Furthermore, the flag reflects Basecamp Explorer´s involvement in local communities and culture, striving to be a showcase for best practice responsible tourism and sustainable destination development. The use of tactile materials and secondary identity elements that celebrate the heritage and history of travel are used throughout the identity to reinforce the link to the past without neglecting the fact that Basecamp Explorer is a modern, forward-thinking company within its own industry.
