Serving citizens in need since 1957, Irving Cares asked FigDesign to create a new logo and identity on the occasion of their 60th anniversary.
Inspired by the organization’s slogan “It’s a hand up, not a handout” the new mark incorporates an upward arrow within a welcoming, rounded hand. FigDesign created a simple graphic standards guide for marketing applications and designed a special brochure to commemorate their 60 years of service.

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.
