NGEx Resources – New Logo

Our long time client, NGEx Resources approached us with a rebranding request. With new and exiting things on the horizon they wanted a stronger, more powerful logo that would signal a pick up in pace to the investor.

Using the success of the logo design for the company’s recent spin-off Filo Mining as a departure point, we revisited the core values of NGEx Resources and their motto ’No Guts No Glory’. The new logo elevates the name NGEx above the high Andes where the company’s projects are located. It plays with the notion of a range of opportunities to explore and develop. The style, reminiscent of vintage mountaineering illustrations, embraces the idea that a combination of hard work, skill and risk are the only path to reach the pinnacle.

Filo Mining – New Company Logo

We have been getting compliments on our recent favourite project. We could not be happier with how it turned out and the final selection the client made.

Background: Filo Mining is a spin-out of Filo del Sol project that was previously part of NGEx Resources portfolio. Filo Mining is a Lundin Group Company.

Concept: Filo means “Ridge” – “sharp ridge” in Argentina Spanish, and “razors edge” in proper Spanish. Sol means sun. Filo del Sol project is located in the Andes and straddles the border between Argentina and Chile.

Inspiration: The client requested to see the sun as one the elements in the logo. The images of mountains at sunrise or sunset immediately came to mind. The distinct Alpine Glow was the main captivating element we wanted to achieve.

Another point of of inspiration came from the graphic qualities of vintage travel posters. Simple, bold lines create powerful image, easy to remember.
