Logo Design for Import Auto Parts Retailer 848 310 Nick Saporito

For over 20 years, Epic Autoteks has been a provider of import auto parts — particularly engines and transmissions from Japan (although they provide a wide variety of auto parts.) They service local, national and international markets. The objective for this project was to create a new logo that conceptualizes who they are and what they do.

After trying out a wide variety of fonts, we decided to go with Michroma by Vernon Adams, which is an open font similar in appeal to Microgramma — a sans serif font made popular by its use in technical illustrations in the 1960’s. This font has since stood the test of time and continues to be relevant to this day.

With the iconic mark and typeface finalized, the new logo is completed.
