Building’s Brand-New ‘Bow Tie’

Subtitle: 
“The Chevrolet window graphics needed to be vivid and eye-catching while not distracting the building’s tenants.”

The Job Established as General Motors Daewoo since 2001 when Korean-based car maker Daewoo sold most of its assets to GM, the company made the decision to strip “Daewoo” from its name in 2011, rebranding itself as GM Korea Company. All new models sold in its home market would now be branded as Chevrolets. The rebrand was no small undertaking: Nearly all Daewoo badges had to be replaced with the well-known Chevrolet “bow tie” and dealerships needed to change out all Daweoo signage with GM Korea and Chevrolet branding.

Nearly depleted budget? Olive drab comes to mind.
