Recent work - Promenade at Downey - THE VULTEE ARCHIVES AND HISTORY MUSEUM
Recently Big City was given the task of reproducing the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation logo on the building front of an upcoming museum.

On the outside of the building, then, here is how our instant-aged logo developed:
