Imperial Granite & Stone

In Q3 of 2021, Yesterday Design Co. began working with Imperial Granite & Stone Ltd. In essence, IGS is a countertop fabricator located in Markham, Ontario. To summarize, they house granite, marble, and onyx in their showroom. In order to communicate the company values, we knew the new brand needed to be bold and elegant.

After the initial session with the client, it was apparent that the current branding did not meet the company goals. Instead, they wanted a modern and classy brand system that showed their values and quality of work. Therefore, the goal was to use design and marketing to accelerate performance.

Strategy

The origins of the word “Imperial” lead us to journey through numerous periods and territories, where being considered imperial was an exclusive title. Looking back, history suggests a strong strategy and a robust foundation for an empire to reign supreme. Therefore, the crown is reserved strictly for the Imperial. For this reason, the brand strategy was designed with this idea in mind.

Mark Inspiration

The new brand needed a bold and unique appearance, with fresh energy. So, after gaining a new perspective from the discovery session, the focus shifted. The logo is a whitespace “Imperial” type mark accompanied by a crown logomark. The crown represents imperial status and a standard of perfection – it demands respect. The crown mark makes for a beautiful brand style with the whitespace mark.

Notice that the crown is made of the white space in the ‘M’ of Imperial.
