This logo holds insight in insurance history. Long before records were kept in electronic databases, proof of insurance was marked by an “insurance fire mark.” This iron plaque marked a building to verify, even in the event of a fire, that the building was insured.

Brett approached me with a concrete idea of what the Actors Link was looking for. They specifically wanted either chain links or an infinity link on a shield style logo. A few drafts led to the final layout and then the request was for shine. I’ve never wanted to dive into 3D animation for a client as much as I did for these guys.

The bonus, is that it comes in multiple colors including teal, hot pink, orange, and the blue color below.

I banished the 90’s letter styling made popular by photoshop effects twenty years ago. Retraced the logo with vector art so it can be infinitely resized (exciting!). After a few adjustments by the client, here’s what we came up with:
