Linton Architecture is a collaborative think-tank that combines the skills and passion of a small group of young, passionate architects who love to make things. The spaces and structures we craft are the embodiment of our clients' hopes and needs, each like a custom-tailored suit cut for a flawless fit.
Common threads in our work are sustainability, site-specificity, and real natural materials. We love to experiment with material textures and light and use familiar materials in new and unfamiliar ways. Light and raw matter are our palette.
Our work includes a blend of contemporary, historic, and adaptive reuse projects. Custom residential work is the mainstay of the firm, from modest little additions to high-end custom homes. We also design schools, restaurants and similarly small commercial projects, but nothing too big: no high-rises or shopping malls.
Our clients are both young and old, wealthy and not. All of them share a belief in the value of good design. The work is very personal, and we pride ourselves on listening closely to our clients and responding to their spatial needs and aesthetic sensibilities.
The logo will be featured prominently on our:
- drawing sheets
- business cards
- job site signs
We obsess about materials. Our signs may be carved into stone, wood, or rusty steel. If it helps, try to imagine you're designing the logo with a hunk of raw material. We'll look for logos that lend themselves to this sort of thing.
The firm name needs to appear prominently, for legibility when driving past a project site. The logo may or may not include the abbreviation "pc" (professional corporation) after the firm name.
Graphic elements would be great, but try to avoid cliche architectural references (column capitals and such). Graphics should be iconic and not cartoonish.
We love a range of dark blues, rusty orange-browns, pale greens, etc. Our drawing sheets are printed in grayscale, though, so the logo needs to work well in both color and grayscale. One color max per logo, please.
The overall aspect ratio can't be too terribly tall/thin or short/wide, probably 2:1 or 1:2 max.
Feel free to play with capitals and lower cases, letter sizes, serif and sans-serif fonts. The overall impression should be modern but strong and classy, not too slick or zippy.
We will need both color and grayscale versions in:
- vector format (.ai)
- raster format (.jpg)
- layered format (.psd)
Good luck! We can't wait to see what you make!
