You’re about to cross the street. As you approach the crosswalk, you notice a colorful tile set in the pavement leading to the road. It’s yellow, gray, or maybe brick red, with a uniform pattern of raised dots. What is it? It’s an ADA detectable warning tile. These tiles are mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act to protect the visually impaired.
. They’re an American owned and operated company and the only ADA tile manufacturer that makes their high-quality products in-house, no outsourcing.
TufTilewith their brand identity.
They didn’t have a creative team, and over the years, TufTile’s engineers had cobbled together a logo and other marketing materials. But the TufTile brand needed consistency and brand recognition.
TufTile’s branding didn’t match their premium products. They wanted, but they didn’t want to move too far from their original logo since each of their products is stamped with it.
With TufTile’s objectives in mind,. Their ADA tiles are geometrically perfect, each raised dot in alignment with the one above, below, and beside it.
So we set the logo in a geometric typeface, the underside of each capital T aligning with the top of the lowercase letters. The i is dotted with a perfect circle, like the raised dots on the tiles.
and shows a clear evolution from the original.
We then created a, featuring a capitalized T. The left side of the T is solid, and the right side is composed of perfect circles.
TufTile loved the logo and icon so much they had company shirts made, embroidered with the design.
Next, we developed TufTile’s color palette. We wanted to move away from the overdone yellow-and-black color scheme. Instead, we sought inspiration from TufTile’s very own products, which come in a variety of colors, including dark gray, brown, yellow, and deep reds. Sticking close to those colors, we created a memorable color scheme thatand looks great on screens and paper.
With the color palette and logo defined, we then created sell sheets, letterhead, PowerPoint templates, full-page ads for trade publications, flyers, a website, and more.
With a fresh brand identity and a powerful new website,.
They’re ready to break new ground in their industry and at a crosswalk near you. The next time you cross the street, check the ADA tile for the TufTile logo.
