What can I say but WOW! My job relies heavily on attention to detail and research. I have to be vigilante and make sure projects are designed per plans, meet certain code requirements, and functions the way life-safety systems per the matrix. My expectations are extremely high thus working with me can at times frustrating, taxing and sometimes unrealistic ( I actually fired my creative director during this process ). The fire department is steeped in tradition each symbol has a specific meaning.
Our Logo -( St Florian )- Patron Saint of Fire Fighters
Compass -( Design ) - Used by Engineers, Architects, Designers
Bugle - ( Communication ) - Used to give commands on fire ground.
Ancient Greek Text - "New Fire Protection Agency" - NFPA...
KP did an exceptional job, continued to call me sir when i asked him
to call me Dan, tolerated my vision while probably wondering if I'm ever going to be satisfied... He hit the mark with not 1 but 2 logos . The core group of our company was split 50/50.. half for red other for blue...so we decided why not use both..somehow.. This agency bridges the gap between (Design/Engineering - White collar)
and the Fire/Medic - Blue Collar). I did hire back my Creative Director because she is in my opinion the best in her highly competitive field.
KP... thank you for being respectful, patient, and understanding what "my vision" is and first and foremost attention to detail. (Also for not telling me I'm a total JERK...)
YOU WOULD BE CRAZY NOT TO USE THIS CREATIVE MIND !!
I GOT MORE THAN MY MONIES WORTH..!!!...!!!!!!
