With effective strategic planning, industry analysis, and creative content development, we help shape AECOM’s story and clarify its vision. We uncover the people behind the projects, bringing to light talent and thought leaders who will see AECOM into the future.

We’ve worked with AECOM to visualize the new WTC site, Hudson Yards, One Vanderbilt, as well as the Atlanta Falcons, Los Angeles Rams, and USTA stadium complexes.
An Evolved Brand Identity,
Modernized for Today’s World.
From color to type, graphic texture to executive headshots, no visual touchpoint went untouched.
Color was explored and launched that employed generous white space, punctuated by sophisticated tones of slate blue, rust and grey. Typeface was evolved to utilize friendly serif and secondary sans serif type, yielding an informed and human tone to the written voice. Brand motifs were developed, activating abstract patterns that speak E&C but have a sense of organization and sustainability. Executive headshots were styled to have a fresher, cleaner and more modern aesthetic.
