Sep 12 — AADC Identity Only Getting Stronger
Back in 2003, nearly 10 years ago, our group designed the AADC identity, which ended up being an award winner. Earlier this year, we were lucky enough to have gotten a call from them asking if we could help them with their signage for their new move. Their new location was a great opportunity for brand exposure… so we were thinking that it was a great opportunity to bring their brand to life. The project was a blast… We were able to help them with building paint color selections (for creating an overall brand presence) and then their street presence (or signage), inspired by pet collars and tags. We thank our friends at AADC for the opportunity! Hope you enjoy…
