The Protego logo mark, meaning ‘I protect’ or ‘I defend’ in Latin, takes its inspiration from the ancient Latin alphabet letter ‘P.’ This glyph serves to symbolically emphasize the letter ‘P’ of the word Protego(Protect) making it both the basis of and focal point of the logo mark; underscoring the importance of this word and its relation to the ethos of the brand.
To create the logo mark I repeated and rotated the Latin ‘P’ glyph around a central point to create a circle – which has classic connotations around promise and trust. I then evolved the circle into an abstract safe dial to subtly illustrate what it is that you are protecting – safes being typically associated with money and items of great value.
Only one of the Latin ‘P’ symbols remains unaltered within the dial, simply to highlight its importance and relevance within the mark.
