Logo and stationery design by Perky Bros for customer acquisition service and telecom/energy contractor Plow

Plow is a Tennessee based customer acquisition service and telecom/energy contractor for the large to mid-size business sector. Their identity, created by multidisciplinary design agency Perky Bros, neatly communicates the experience, professionalism and advisory nature of Plow’s service, the commodities they manage and their renewable energy options through a logo-type built from a stencil cut serif typeface and apostrophe detail set across a stationery solution that utilises an unbleached recycled material choice and a website with a mixed fibre background.

“Plow does dirty work. They deal with telecom carriers so you don’t have to. The identity draws inspiration from its agricultural namesake with stencil lettering & recycled materials, but reinvigorates it with organized design & remarkable production techniques.”

– Perky Bros

There is a really interesting triality to this identity that cleverly mixes the professional—the formal knowledge, experience and advisory nature of the company expressed through a classic typographical choice and apostrophe detail. The practical—drawing together the everyday nature of the utilities sector through simple stencil cut detail, a single colour choice and untreated materials. And the conscientious—an open and honest service with an environmental dimension delivered through the recycled constituency of the stationery and the mixed fibre background and distressed type of the website.

The grid-based background of the letter-head, the two-ply juxtaposition of earthy unbleached and conventional bleached substrates of the business card, the mixed fibre background and distressed typography of the website, and the tactile, high quality finish of a deep blind emboss, deliver depth and a technical but personal duality to the brand.

It is an incredibly rich visual resolution of relevant ideas appropriately distributed across a number of touch-points and while the logo-type feels thematically a little heavy within the context of these other assets it remains distinctive and communicative

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.
