The goal was to create a professional brand that conveyed strength and dependability. The client wanted a logo that had a classic feel, yet was contemporary in nature to reflect their progressive approach to accounting and taxation. They also wanted to have something that referenced their company’s southwestern roots.

Gentry Smith Design created a comprehensive logo and identity package that featured an original abstract buffalo illustration. The buffalo was the perfect choice for its southwest heritage, and its visual representation of strength and dependability. The color scheme and fonts were chosen for their timeless institutional look. The abstract buffalo illustration was inspired by a buffalo sculpture the client owned.
