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.

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.
