In the fall we took on a unique project for the NSA and Marine Corps Cyber Security Command. The Washington D.C. metropolitan area is know for its presence in the defense industrial complex and it is common for this community to recognize their departments with logos and insignias that are specific to their branch. The recent increase in awareness of cyber security has given rise to a whole new area for defense, and similarly for logo recognition.
We were contacted by a group of contractors who was outfitting a new facility, and they quickly came to understand our area of expertise in making these types of logos and emblems. Their requirement was for three, 3-D logos to be cast or fabricated in a short time frame from provided artwork. We offered them hand sculpted versions of the Eagle Globe Anchor, and for the USMC Cyber Security Department. Ultimately we provided hand sculpted bas-relief graphics, painted HDU foam, cast resin, and metal faced versions for both interior and exterior.
Some of the details that were included are:
- 36” cast resin USMC EGA : Eagle Globe Anchor with painted metallic finish and outdoor clear coat.
- 36” HDU CNC router carved with cast resin center piece : cyber security logo : hand painted multi-color finish.
- 36” HDU CNC router carved with cast resin center piece : cyber security logo : aluminum satin finish detail w/ metallic 2 part poly urethane background.
These logos were designed to bring texture and a bas relief center together and have been treated with clear coat finish. The craftsmanship that went into this hand sculpted and CNC routed creation will be enjoyed by many for years to come. We are proud to be a small part of all the hard work and service that this project embodies.
