Tamko: Branding and logo design for an Ottawa painting and contracting company

idApostle was tasked with developing the branding for Tamko, an Ottawa-based company initially specializing in interior and exterior painting.

Often, construction and contracting companies resort to tough, bold solutions to represent strength. We decided to be a black sheep and leverage Tamko’s expertise rather than brute strength. The straight, fine, and parallel lines of the custom typography reflect their skill level and obsession with perfection differentiating Tamko from the many college employed, and often inexperienced painting organizations. The efforts help make the decision-making process easier for potential clients.
