Arbolope Studio

Arbolope Studio is a Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, and Public Art firm based in St. Louis, Missouri. Only a few years after its founding, the firm has already amassed a serious portfolio, collaborating with Studio Gang, Michael Vergason, and Project for Public Spaces (NY), among others.

With a number of projects sited at Washington University in St. Louis, as well as city parks, community housing developments, and even a Frank Llloyd Wright house under their belt, they have struck an admirable balance between corporate work and work for the public good.

Our task was to develop their brand identity, expanding outwards from the founding partners' love of tree rings as a central image.
We new from the beginning that Arbolope's identity had to reflect their earnest passion for good design and social welfare–all while maintaining a start-up/young guns attitude essential to the culture of the office.

Their new logo harkens back to the trees, yet it's subtle curves also suggest broader landscapes and placemaking. Their brand typeface suite combines the lithe minimalism of Universe with the upstart flirty-ness of Circular. Followingthe intial brand work, Arbolope request that we design and developed both a website and marketing collateral to match.
