AECOM logo

The AECOM visual identity is laconic and solid. The text-based logo has one unique detail, which makes it instantly recognizable and stylish. Though it is executed in a monochrome palette, the logo looks modern and intense, with thick clean lines, reflecting the company’s professionalism and fundamental approach. A perfect reflection of the business purpose, evoking a sense of reliability and seriousness.

The AECOM wordmark in all capitals is executed in a bold and italicized geometric sans-serif typeface with the letter “E” modified. Being the most remarkable part of the whole logo, the AECOM “E” is composed of only three horizontal bars, with the vertical one missing. The letter makes the whole inscription look progressive and dynamic.

The nameplate of the company reflects power and movement, evoking a sense of authority and huge experience, AECOM has in engineering and construction management.

The monochrome color palette makes the logo look strong and solid on any placement, staying timeless and always actual.

It is one of the very simple yet very powerful logotypes, which points to the company’s strongest points, showing it as a reliable and professional one.
