Hyde Park Bank

A Modern Traditional Bank

Marble. Fifty-foot ceilings. Grand arches. Carved medallions and massive chandeliers. Hyde Park Bank exemplifies classic bank architecture. Yet within this landmark setting thrives an ultramodern bank in both form and function, meeting the needs of a diverse commercial and private banking clientele.

Since 2003, the Grillo Group has helped Hyde Park Bank successfully communicate its unique dual positioning—an up-to-the-minute, tech-savvy, multi-service institution and an enduring pillar of the Hyde Park community for more than 85 years. From revamping the bank’s brand identity to designing interior and exterior signage to creating online and print promotions, we’ve completed hundreds of projects encompassing the full spectrum of branding and marketing communications.
