Track Industries is a machining and engineering firm operating in Christchurch for more than 30 years. They engaged us to design a new logo for their firm. 
They asked for a bold, sharp looking design that could be used for Track Industries and their various divisions.

My initial plan was to design some sharp looking type - which each letter cut down to a most simplistic form. This gives the lettering a solid, machined like quality. I experimented with various cuts and placements of the letters. Eventually deciding to run a couple of lines across the top and bottom, a bit like a track. 

I designed the Track logotype to stand as an unique and easily identifiable shape - with a changeable sub-line for Industries, Machining - Engineering, Pumps - Irrigation. These could be displayed in various colour formats whilst still being obviously part of the same firm.

The angular lettering of the logo became a feature we could carry forward as part of their identity. 
We also designed and developed a website to showcase their abilities in Machining - Engineering. And also as a resource tool for identifying the various pump models they service in their Pumps - Irrigation division. Which helped solve a big problem with customers calling them up asking about pump parts, without easily knowing what sort of pump they actually had.
