Workplace Design: Integrating the Logo

A logo symbolizes an enterprise’s identity; it stands for the brand and all that it promises. As designers and interior architects, incorporating a client’s logo into a workplace design can be done in many ways, some subtle, others highly creative or quite pronounced. Here are a few examples. 

At Bacardi in Barcelona, the signature bat makes many appearances.

For Twitter in London, the typesetter’s art distinctively renders the logo.

The mobile above the stairs forms the logo when the air currents are just right for a confidential client.

The CNA logo slants 70 degrees from vertical; so does the crisscross pattern on the screening element and other design features throughout the headquarters.

Oversized, inverted, and abstracted, the Jet logo boldly embellishes the walls.
