An entrance fit for royalty welcomes guests at Kingpin Crown

The new branding and Crown venue boasts contemporary style and ediginess

“Kingpin is a multi-faceted entertainment brand that speaks to a demographic who curate their own lifestyles. It was imperative that the visual and verbal branding across all materials and in-centre evolved with this trend and direction,” comments Chief Executive of Bowling & Entertainment, Nicole Noye.

Stategy Lead at DDI, Angie Laxton reiterated, “Our audience are whip smart and incredibly saavy – they’ll decide what’s cool, not us. What we wanted to do was stay true to what this brand is all about……in a nutshell, when you roll at Kingpin, you’ll feel on top of the world……royal even”.

As part of the brand re-launch, DDI created a new visual and verbal identity, including a new logo that’s been affectionately dubbed the ‘slashie’, reflecting Kingpin’s new multi-dimensional experience, their audience (the slashie generation) and with a subtle nod to the universal symbol for a spare in bowling.
