Tasked with reviving an outdated company logo, our team brainstormed a conceptual message that mirrored what the company stood for, full immersion. The “+” in the logo represented much more than that the partnership between owners (Dale) Dean & (Greg) Houston, but rather the relationship with employees, associates and decades-long clients. The custom die-cut business cards served as the perfect medium to fully display the message that together we make up what is DeanHouston+, forming the “+” symbol as we place them side-by-side.
