My Intro to Visual Communication Final. I had to design stationary and come up with a company to represent my object for the semester, the drafting compass. I chose to go a very mathematical route because my company was named “Exact Architecture.” Everything is based off of the number 3:
The two parts of the logo mark (a drafting compass) represent what the architect does; The smaller blue triangle (the handle of the compass) represents the conceptual side, where the architect envisions the final product. The larger magenta triangle (the drawing point and the needle anchor) represents the physical output, the drawings and blueprints produced and sent to the company that constructs the building.
The strict grid is meant to represent what the company does — build complex structures out of simple parts. The circles are meant to represent the human aspect of architecture, with the rigid grid housing circles of all shapes and sizes.
I posted this a while ago, but since I’m about to do work on a company’s identity at work, I thought I’d share again.
