This is a recently completed logo design commission. The client had just started an oilfield engineering company. He initially wanted a design for just the main company, but decided that he also wanted one for its subsidiary. With that in mind, my goal was to tie the two marks together visually, but make them distinctive from one another. I worked up a lot of detailed sketches and submitted them for feedback. The concept that excited me the most used the initials of both companies as a motif to suggest an oil rig. Many times I struggle to get on paper visually what’s in my head. Sometimes I’m disappointed. After many pencil renderings, I got my idea to work and I liked it, but the most important thing is that the customer did too. You can see some of my other logo designs here.
