About: Missouri based Engineered Glass Systems (EGS) is a large contract glass & glazing company that furnishes and installs commercial and institutional curtainwall, window, ext. wall panel, storefront, skylights, and entrance systems. Project sizes range from smaller office buildings to high rise and large hospitals, schools, and universities.
Logo Brief: Engineered Glass Systems of Missouri wanted their logo to portray the large scope of most of their construction and engineering projects, and to avoid the depiction of residential or small buildings. The logo could utilize the imagery of “engineered enclosure systems, monumental tower cranes, iron workers working out of 120′ boom lifts or staging suspended from large buildings”. In other words, EGS wanted their new logo to illustrate BIG. Very big.
If our logo designers wished to illustrate figures in any of the EGS designs, the client wanted “Big Union Ironworkers as “these guys look different than all other trades. Brown hard hats, blue jeans. Big Strong guys working around cranes. The kind of construction workers you’re only going to find in the high-up, limited access areas of the active construction site”.
The logo had to work well on truck doors and other construction equipment, so it needed to be simple enough to be cut from vinyl, yet complex enough to remain interesting and dynamic. At the end of the day, our logo design artists were able to nail this one pretty well out of the gate, with limited revisions, due to the complete and thorough pre-design brief supplied by the client. The Logo Factory also created a dynamic 3D flash logo animation of the EGS symbol…
An over the top 3D assembly of ECG’s logo was what the client wanted for the launch of their new construction web site. We were only too happy to oblige. [ launch in new window]
