To meet the challenge of creating a piece of work that reflects the client’s reputation and long-lasting presence, AG developed a brand identity system with a timeless feel.
The logo represents a ten story building created using the architect’s name, a wordmark with symmetry and vertical structure and a linking relationship with the architects’ work. The typographic system offers perfect flexibility for adapting the concept onto any possible design needs and applications, always by keeping the architects’ work in the forefront position.
The typographic system let us create endless communication material while the work of the architects remains the protagonist.
