Burt Lockhart and Mike Suver have been building high quality one-of-a-kind homes together for over twenty years. They founded Lockhart|Suver LLC with the goal of pursuing their mutual passion for building great architecture. For Burt and Mike, working with Koyo meant they would have a brand expression based on design with sophistication and attention to details — just like in their work.
Koyo created the brand’s visual identity based on an idea of the origin of the Lockhart and Suver family names. By collaborating closely with Burt and Mike and using an ancient Runic alphabet as a foundation element, Koyo provided a very personal expression of their craft and company. Since that time, Koyo has continued to collaborate with Lockhart|Suver designing the brand’s basic elements, it’s symbol and logo mark, a graphic standards guide, print collateral materials, business communication materials, website, office and site signage, fleet graphics, employee clothing and various promotions. The result was a successful launch of the business brand with an identity that, over time, has provided differentiation and correct placement for their services in the fine home construction market.
