Grand Gates

IDENTITY DESIGN / GRAPHIC DESIGN
BRIEF

Grand Gates design, manufacture and install beautiful hand-crafted gates. The company has an exceptional portfolio with a range of stunning gate designs crafted in a variety of fine metals. We’ve been working with the organisation for the best part of a decade and were delighted to be asked again to develop something new for their brand. They were looking for an identity which was fresh, modern and showcased the craftsmanship of their work.

SOLUTION

At the loft, this was a dream brief, we instantly explored a variety of ways to showcase the idea of craftsmanship with our design sketches. We honed in on the idea of using a metallic finish for the main design, and after much exploration with the client, selected a pale gold finish.

The logo itself was kept simple, with the letters GG being used back-to-back, and the words being written with a modern typeface. Finally, we worked closely with the client to develop the tagline ‘Safety, Security and Style.’

RESULT

A tremendous result. The final identity was brought to life with a series of absolutely exquisitely crafted business cards from Glasgow Letterpress. A complimentary icon set was created which carried through the pale gold finish. The brand is in the process of being rolled-out.

“We’ve been working with the loft for many years and in that time they have helped us to develop our values, brand our company and assisted with a series of different communications. It’s always a pleasure to work with them and see what magic they will create next. The team is inspiring with their creative talents and how they pull it all together to make sense. Highly recommended.”
