I have worked on a logo design for Riga-based Web Development company, titled Aquila.
Aquila is a Latin and Roman word for an Eagle, and there is also a constellation named the same way.
The project started with an idea of creating a logo representing the constellation, which then led to a more illustrative approach with an image of an eagle in the heart of a design.
As the client realised he was drawn to a more minimalistic illustration style, a further approach was born, which had two crossing lines representing an eagle.
The style of this sign also reminded of traditional Latvian symbols, which connects the brand to where it was established.
As a part of an experiment, the sign and the brand name in a font I believed complimented it, were placed in an outlined circle.
Tweaked, it then became the final logo chosen by the client.
