  • Logo and visual identity for UDS

    Overview   Process  

    Task: to develop a logo and visual identity for a construction company.

    The UDS (Urengoydorstroy) construction company is in the business of building and developing roads, airports, and city streets in the Far North region of Russia. It does construction & maintenance work at natural gas fields, and also produces asphalt. The studio created a logo and visual identity for UDS.

    The logo has a hidden road junction and a North Star, which symbolizes the type of business the company is engaged in, and the region

    The company logo can be found in all kinds of places, anywhere from business documents to construction equipment. Therefore different versions of the logo have been developed, so it will always look nice and neat everywhere.

    The specific elements of UDS’s visual style are the alternating or paired beveled lines, painted in the company colors: white, dark gray, and turquoise. The combination of lines and solid background colors allows you to create a varied, but always recognizable visual style.
