Winner of 4th Annual Best Civil Engineering Firm Logo Announced!

We are pleased to announce the WINNER of the 4th annual “Best Civil Engineering Firm Logo” contest! We find that the judging has become more challenging for this contest.  Each year we receive an increase in entries from the year prior, and the quality of the logos has been absolutely amazing.  As a result, the contest has become extremely competitive.  We would like to thank ALL of those who entered this year’s contest, and at the end of the day, as long as your logo is something that you can stand proud beside that is really all that matters!

So, without further ado, we would like to extend an enormous round of applause to this year’s winner:

Crafton Tull 1

“We are so honored for our logo to be chosen by Civil Engineering Central as this year’s best.  We’ve been blessed to have been in business for 50 years this year, and this recognition will add to our  celebration.  Thanks!”

-Matt Crafton, President & CEO of Crafton Tull


Crafton Tull’s logo is known as “The Interchange”.  That name comes from several meanings related to their business.  First, the logo represents a highway interchange and reflects their long history of providing transportation engineering services to DOT’s, municipalities and private clients for nearly 50 years.  In fact their two founders were both employed at the Arkansas Highway & Transportation Department before they started Crafton Tull in 1963.  Second, and perhaps more importantly, the word Interchange reflects Crafton Tull’s commitment to always listen to their clients’ needs and develop creative solutions to meet those needs.  Their process is an “interchange” of ideas to arrive at the best solutions.

When Crafton Tull was founded, their home city just had one high school.  The two founders thought it would show strong commitment to the community to adopt the color of the local high school team, thus the royal blue color of their logo.  Commitment to all of the local communities where they operate remains a strong value of the firm to this date.

Thanks again for all who participated and helped contribute to yet another successful…

Best Civil Engineering Firm Logo Winner Announced

The Best Civil Engineering Firm Logo contest was spawned a few years back when the aggressive onset of social media and when the concept of corporate branding was at the top of every business owner or marketing executive’s “to do” list.  No longer are logo’s seen on just business cards, brochures, and corporate stationary, but they are now subject to the scrutiny of electronic media – be it email signatures, corporate websites, corporate social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, corporate recruiting sites, job boards, etc.  With the amount of exposure companies get these days, the importance of a firm’s logo and how it is incorporated into the cumbersome electronic world for all to see, we felt that a Best Civil Engineering Firm Logo contest was warranted.

In judging the dozens of entries that we received, we looked at a number of different criteria:

A.    Immediate impact
B.    Is it memorable (in a positive way)?
C.    Is it appealing to the eye?
D.    Accuracy in depicting the services of the company
E.    Effectiveness  in depicting the corporate and employment branding initiatives of the company

Taking all the criteria into consideration, without further ado, this year’s winner of CivilEngineeringCentral.com’s Best Civil Engineering Firm Logo is:

With dozens of entries to choose from, there were a few front-runners, but Woolpert ended on top.  This is Woolpert’s first time entering our contest, and with their recent re-design they scored very high on all the criteria. 

“Woolpert is very proud to be the recipient of Civil Engineering Central’s Best Civil Engineering Firm Logo. As we wrapped up our 100th year in business, it is rewarding to see that rigorous efforts to update our logo are being recognized in the industry.” – Jocelyn Hodson,  Woolpert

We would like to thank all of those firms who entered our 3rd Annual “Best Civil Engineering Firm Logo” Contest and we look forward to the next contest at the end of this year!  CONGRATULATIONS WOOLPERT!

And The Winner Is…

When Carol & I tossed the idea around in 2007 of starting a niche civil engineering job board and a corresponding blog, one of the first things we set out to do was hire someone to develop a logo that we felt was eye catching, that was memorable, and that was applicable to what we were looking to accomplish.  It was an interesting process coming up with the concept and working through our differences, but at the end of the day we were extremely excited about the final outcome.  Our logo designer, Dusty Burchnall of 2Fish Group  was not only attentive and understanding of what we were looking for, but he was also extremely patient.  We understand there are many factors that go into the design of a corporate logo and it can be a very emotional process, and rightfully so.  It can also be a very personal process.  That said, we would like to thank all of this year’s firms that entered our contest. Though there is only one winner here, at the end of the day as long as you and your employees can stand tall and proud behind your logo and what it represents, that is all that truly matters.  So, without further ado, the 2010 winner of CivilEngineeringCentral.com’s Best Civil Engineering Logo Contest goes to:

The battle for the top spot was extremely competitive this year, but when the final tallying was complete our winner was S&ME out of Raleigh, NC.   S&ME is a geotechnical, environmental, construction materials engineering & testing, industrial health & safety, solid waste engineering, cultural resources and natural resources firm. Headquartered in Raleigh, NC with 26 locations in the southeast USA. They are employee owned and 1,000 employee strong.

From S&ME, “Our mission is to safely deliver excellent client service through responsiveness and technical excellence; provide fulfilling careers and professional satisfaction to our employees; and achieve financial success that provides company growth and rewards our employees.” 

According to Dianne Yusko, Communications Specialist with S&ME,  with the exception of one color change, S&ME has carried the same logo since 1973!   Their logo arrow represents their original service of geotechnical and geology. The bottom arrow represents subsurface stratification. The top arrow represents the firm’s work above ground.  They have used their signature PMS 476 brown to represent the earth and their PMS 158 orange to represent their commitment to safety on the job.

 The judging criteria for the contest was based upon the following questions that were posed to the judges as they were asked to respond with a numeric point value on a sliding scale of 1-5.  The logo with the highest cumulative point total was the winner:

1. Does the logo make an immediate impact by grabbing one’s attention right off the bat?

2. Is the logo memorable? Is it uniquely applicable to what the firm does – enough so that it will positively embed itself in the memory of clients, employees, peers, etc?

3. Is the logo appealing to the eye?

4. Does the logo accurately represent the company and its services?

5. Does the nominated logo accurately represent the firm’s corporate and employment branding initiatives?



Finally, we would like to give thanks to the following judges for their commitment in making this another highly successful contest:
