Featuring a monk-as-mug, this mark for a popular meeting spot at the University of Dallas draws on the heritage of the school’s Rome Campus tradition as well as the presence of several distinguished members of the Cistercian Order on the Irving faculty.
The origin of the term cappuccino includes a visual pun on the brown Capuchin robe as coffee and the bald head as frothed milk.
Three versions of the mark — circular, vertical and horizontal — were developed to fit different applications.

This stained glass company has designed, fabricated, installed and restored magnificent windows since its founding in 1898 in St Louis.
Six generations of the Frei family have owned and operated the business.
FigDesign researched and created a simple word mark as part of an identity that represents more than a century of stained glass craftsmanship. The logo conveys the form of a window without a literal interpretation. Custom letterforms are based on early twentieth century geometric experiments in type design. The single stroke shapes are flexible for use in various media and signage.
FigDesign also created a web site for the studio.

FigDesign created a responsive web site with photo galleries and a daily Bistro menu for Glory House Catering. Reservation forms and downloadable menus simplify the process of arranging catering services. A series of seasonal logos reflect each holiday or event and add interest to the site experience.
The site is simple for the client to update, and visibility to potential and current customers has increased significantly. It also adapts to display well on all size screens from phones and tablets to laptops and desktops.
Client Jo Ann Goin, 2012 President of the Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce Board, is generous in her praise of the increased traffic, simpler registration and higher awareness in the community.

Visual references to a cattle brand reflect the heritage of this manufacturer of nameplates for harsh environments.
In business since 1946, the company is the smallest business to receive the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, and the only small business to have received the award twice — in 1998 and 2004.
The brand is extended through use of copper ink and radiused corners for stationery elements and print collateral.
The City of Irving, founded in 1903 on an 80-acre plat, commissioned a logo for its Heritage District to focus public awareness on the revitalization of its older downtown area.

FigDesign also created a Visitor Guide, researching historic properties and compiling a special map that references highlights in the area.
