BRANDING

Client: Twinstate Technologies®

CONCEPT The Electrical Design & Services (EDS) logo concept demonstrates new, as well as sustainable. This is visible in the fresh color palette. Movement is another foundational piece of the concept. It pertains to: the field of electrical engineering -- the electrical current and design complexity is signified by the arrows; and EDS' speed of service. The logo also indicates evolution/change, reliability and project completion. The shape of both options conveys process, confidence and projects coming full circle.

What we did: Full branding services, advertising, web design, vehicle design and billboard design. Print management.

Fast Project Turn-Around

COLOR CHART The colored movement is represented as a circular rotating ring. This movement creates the idea of continuity -- a continuous movement that represents the quick turn-around of projects, as well as process, reliability and completion. The green represents a fresh environment; a healthy and renewing process of developing services; and sustainable design. The gray tones, in this case, are representative of the rational part -- engineering expertise, technical knowledge and mastery of calculations to resolve any issues.

THE ENDLESS MOVEMENT CIRCLE REPRESENTS THE IDEA OF ALWAYS MOVING, ALWAYS CHANGING AND CREATING DESIGNS THAT ARE INNOVATIVE. IT ALSO REPRESENTS, ONCE AGAIN, THE IDEA OF QUICK TURN-AROUND, PROCESS, RELIABILITY AND PROJECT COMPLETION.

PIE CHART COLORS Based on primary and complementary chart colors, the EDS logo expands into yellow/green to shades of grays.
