I envisioned the logomark as a badge of honor for members; a symbol representing bragging rights for an exclusive club of fitness elite. Sketching moved quickly to refinement and presentation of various "A" logomark directions.
To help solidify foundational visual elements, the identity was extended to a number of conceptual touchpoints.
The typographic structure of the final Alpha wordmark speaks to stability, strength and fluidity.

We hired David Ellis to capture moments from year one of Alpha Showdown. Competitors were timed while moving through a series of stations that test their strength, technical form and endurance.
We put collateral into the hands of trainers to promote the new program and event.
To help generate excitement for the new program, we designed an internal-facing brand and blue sky concept book for our business partners to present to Life Time executives.
