Louisville Ladder redesign logo

Project notes.

Changing your logo isn’t a business decision to be taken lightly, especially if the mark has been around for a while and has established traction with your market, distributors, vendors and end users. But sometimes it’s time for a change – either to symbolize a fresh direction, or to replace aging brand marks that are starting to get long in the tooth. Louisville Ladder – a leading manufacturer of professional grade ladders and scaffolding – had been using the same logo, more or less, for almost sixty five years. They had decided on a rebrand. The question was – a slight tweak here and there, or a complete overhaul? We started with designs that didn’t stray too far from their original mark:

And a few more iterations.

At some point in the design process, it was decided to scrap any reference to the classic mark entirely and focus on a brand new logo. Our team created the icon you see here – a symbolic depiction of a collapsed ladder.
