This logo is for a completely fictitious entity named Three Nuts General Contractors.
The idea for this brand came to me when I was out and about in the world, and saw a contractor's work van drive by. As I looked at the number 3 in the telephone number on the van, I started thinking about how a cleverly constructed 3 could reveal a wrench in negative space.
Using a hexagonal bolt nut as my main source of inspiration, I thought of a whimsical name which would support the concept I had in mind. In this hypothetical situation, the "Three Nuts" could be a team of three general contractors.
The icon is built from the angles of the bolt nut, and the entire mark should evoke a heavy industrial feel; something that could be stamped into metal, etched into wood, or simply affixed on the side of a work van.

Oxus Aviation is a company that specialises in the brokering of deals between airlines and sourcing of planes and engines for their clients. They wanted a logo that would represent them, without falling into the bracket of ‘obvious airline company’. I opted to go down the route of utilising the wings of an aircraft in an abstract way. By having one arrow facing ‘North’ and one facing ‘South’ the connection to the brokering service provided by Oxus is apparent in the ‘trading’ nature of the symbol. It also offers a nice reference to the global nature of the business and that any direction is possible. It was made clear by Oxus that they wanted to use a dark blue as the main colour for the logo, I complemented this with a mid grey of clouds to give a real feel for the sky.
