Airbnb introduces “the Bélo”

Airbnb has launched a new identity, one that took London and San Francisco-based DesignStudio a year to complete.

“To understand the full scale of this global community, four DesignStudio team members set out to visit 13 cities, staying with 18 hosts, across four continents. All of them equipped with a $100 video camera and the mission to look for local inspiration and insight to drive us to build a better brand.”
