Infinity Print Solutions

An innovative leader in the printing and embroidery of high-quality Spiritwear and wearable merchandise, Infinity Print Solutions provides products and services to schools, small to large businesses and sports organizations.


My client chose the word "Infinity" to reflect a strong, everlasting business that would go on forever. I decided to make the logo a more subliminal representation, as opposed to a blatant figure eight. This is reflected in the lighter gleam on the word Infinity, which visually connects the two outer grey shapes - completing the figure eight symbol. A bold, sans serif font was chosen for the word "Infinity" to create a mighty presence, while "Print Solutions" is shown in a serif font to remain sturdy, even at a smaller size.

Based out of Chicago, Urban Building Group is a boutique design firm specializing in commercial and residential real estate development, general contracting, project management and renovations for any sized project.


Client direction included the following criteria: Red. Grey. Young. Modern.

It was then my duty to create something based on the company background, in which no project was too small, or too large. I chose to feature a larger sans serif font for "Urban" but showcased in all lowercase to keep the vibe young. "Building Group" was shown in all caps to reflect a strong, sharp base needed to anchor the logo. The multi-dimensional grey shapes on top symbolize the many scopes and sizes of work provided.

My role was to research stock photography and select appropriate images to represent Exit's messaging, then build an inviting collateral piece which lessened the intimidation factor for new buyers.
