Westland Logo
Westland Workgear is a New Zealand brand founded in 1994. While originally it manufactured workwear primarily for miners, farmers, fishermen, and mechanics, today the company offers a wider range of products including uniforms, accessories, and safety equipment for various industries.

Meaning and history

The primary Westland Workgear logo, as seen on the company’s website, is rather complex. It contains not only the name of the brand and an emblem but also a tagline.
The wordmark occupies the majority of the space. The word “Workgear” is larger than “Westland” and is given in a darker shade of green. As a result, “Workgear” is better visible. In this way, the company emphasizes the type of product it offers, which is especially valuable when the logo is seen by those unfamiliar with the brand.
Below the name of the brand, there is the tagline “We have promises to keep,” which is also given in dark green but features smaller letters.
All three lines start with the same letter, the “W,” which creates an interesting pattern. The designers behind the logo decided to support the pattern in the emblem placed to the left. The peaks of the snow-capped mountains fit the “W” pretty well.

And yet, we can’t but mention that if the angles of the “W’s” were the same as the angles of the mountain peaks, the visual rhyme could be more pronounced.

Colors

The palette of the Westland logo appears to have been inspired by the beauty of the local landscape featuring various shades of green.
