Zerogon designed by Nicholas Hawker

Logo designed by Nicholas Hawker for Australian software engineering firm Zerogon

Zerogon, (a mathematical term to describe a circle visualized as a polygon that has no edges or vertices) is an Australian software engineering firm that focuses on developing practical solutions for businesses. Their new identity and stationary, designed by Melbourne based graphic designer Nicholas Hawker, is a visual abstraction of the Zerogon concept that appears to balance both a mathematical and mechanical visual style.

There is something really interesting and unusual about this project but I am struggling to grasp the overall concept of the logo-mark even after a fair amount of research into the theme. Regardless of this complexity it does roughly express the idea of – understanding through the systematic deconstruction of the whole and the theoretical, transient nature of the software industry through its exploded visualisation of a zero albeit it in a very (very) abstract way.

The typography and layout of the printed collaterals are solid and manage to have a 1930’s teleprinter aesthetic that appears quite contemporary when combined with the minimal and expanding circular forms of the logo-mark.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
