Hutton sought to update its brand with a look and message that conveys its experience, expertise and team-oriented approach. While much of the construction industry struggles to survive an ongoing downturn that has cut new starts virtually in half, Hutton Construction continues to grow, building on solid relationships forged through its intensely collaborative approach.
Hutton’s new company tagline – Concrete Vision – powerfully supports its re-imagined brand. This refers not only to construction materials, but also to the company’s expertise in taking ideas and concepts and making them real. The brand communicates Hutton’s strength, competence and unrivaled planning; which result in finishing the job on time, on budget and right.
Hutton’s new logo showcases the shapes of both the H and C in a three-dimensional tubular form, reinforcing the team’s rounded, collaborative approach. The typeface conveys strength, with the joined Ts forming a structural beam. The sky-blue color implies vision, while a strong yellow suggests light and creative energy. Since its creation, it has been applied to everything from trucks and hard hats to advertising and site signs. A new website serves as a key platform.
