An association with global influence and a unique membership base requires a professional brand with longevity.

About the project

The American Association of Exporters and Importers is the premier organization representing the community of US trade professionals and companies engaged in global trade. Their members span the globe and are tasked with ensuring compliance with US and international laws governing importing and exporting.

To bring their 100+ year old brand into the current era, we needed to revamp their identity from the inside out. To do so, we set out to create a logo that not only felt fresh and modern but would also withstand the test of time. With a visually engaging color pallet and a bold letter mark accentuated with a strong arrow mark, we were able to create a logo sure to propel the new brand forward. The concept behind the mark was 2-fold: we combined the shape of an arrow meant to represent the movement of trade with a 3-dimensional box to symbolize a shipping container.
