Corporate Identity/Logo ­Development

Our Client: AeroMed Technologies

The Team: Matt Sourwine, Bethany Case and Steve Hodgens

AeroMed, Inc., has provided environmental infection control products for healthcare and research settings in more than a dozen countries, from Asia, Africa, and Europe, to North and South America. AeroMed Technologies is an industry leader driving the evolution of infection control engineering in accordance with United States Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization guidelines.

Headquartered in Utica, New York, with research and development facilities in Amsterdam, New York, AeroMed Technologies serves current clients, and many new ones, who are looking for the confidence and peace of mind that comes with industry-leading COVID prevention products.

They came to our team looking for a corporate identity/logo refresh. They were looking for something more modern but not too far away from what they previously had. They wanted the new logo to still incorporate a medical cross but done in a different way. This new logo to need to provide a feel of legitimacy since they offer medical grade products. Our team put together a logo we were proud of that tied into their existing color palette and developed a logo the client was happy with. It fulfilled everything they were looking for in the logo. It also lended itself to an icon that works perfect for social and many other applications.
