Prince hired Arie de Zanger, many of whose photographs grace this exhibition, to document the hotels for brochures and advertising. Additionally, Syd Mead, who would go on to design sets for such motion pictures as Blade Runner and Aliens, created dozens of hyper-realist renderings of the interiors of Inter-Continental hotels in the 1970s and 80s.
Graphic designer Charles Alvey, from Donald Deskey Associates designed all elements of the hotels’ graphics, from logos to uniforms, china, crystal, stationery, menus and rack folders.
Dale and Pat Keller of Dale Keller and Associates, worked with Prince on a number of projects throughout Asia and Middle East, including hotels in Jakarta, Athens and Karachi.
