Iron Gate Logos
Iron Gate Global Advisors, a wealth and portfolio management firm based in Salt Lake City, UT wanted a logo that would stand out among a sea of traditional logos and appeal to the rising generation of investors. The mark is a sturdy iron gate complemented by a modern serif typeface to convey that the company is refined, yet a little more relaxed that your typical financial management company.
Iron Gate Education is a supplemental logo brand for Iron Gate Global Advisors. It is the education wing under the same parent company, but because of compliance reasons, needed to be completely different. I went with a bookmark-key to represent how education opens the iron gate and the bookmark aspect, though not immediately recognizable, a nod to the education aspect.
