11th Anniversary Brand Change
 

August 2010

Astral introduced a new corporate identity to reflect the company’s services and solutions and to also take the company forward into a new and exciting phase in the company’s development.

 

This element of the logo has been created to reflect our integrated energy management control solutions. It was designed to represent the forward thinking approach we take to helping our clients maintain an environmental focus and remain in control of their building’s resources.

The shading on the buildings encompassed by a leaf shape, demonstrates our ability to continously manage the changing conditions within buildings; throughout seasonal and technological change.

The roundness of the logo portrays our approach to completing projects and the solidity of the shape represents strength and knowledge in our specialist field.
Buildings are set on a spherical shape to represent the earth and the importance we place on maintaining a balanced environmentally efficient environment.

 

The Astral logotype contains a stance of strength within our corporate sector.

The font type contains elegant tails on the A and R characters to create a coherant flow from left to right.

 

The colours used reflects Astral’s previous blue branding and maintains a continuity between that of our previous logo and the new.

This was an important factor when designing the logo as it communicates our established position in the market.

The addition of shades of green reflects our strong environmental focus and ability to control changing environments.
We believe the colours used are symbolic of our efficiency, our environmental beliefs and professionalism.

Company History

Astral Control Services Limited was established in 1999 by Alan Jones and Stevie Hall as an HVAC Automatic Controls company serving organisations in the North East of England.

We first operated from offices based in the west of Newcastle in Westerhope and grew organically through the provision of services and solutions to a varied client base.

The company moved to our new Head Office at Orion Business Park in North Shields to allow for further growth and to facilitate the creation of a Control Panel manufacturing facility.

Following the move, we have continued to provide high quality HVAC Automatic Controls Systems and Support Services to end-user organisations and Building Consultants and with our Control Panel manufacturing facility we are able to provide fully tested and warranted Control Panels to companies throughout the UK.

Astral Control Services Energy Bureau facilitates the efficient use of energy and reduction of energy consumption enabling organisations to monitor and meet government targets and EU legislation.

Astral and our Directors are proud of our heritage and are excited and positive about the future. In 2010, to celebrate our 11th anniversary, we updated our logo and brand identity to be more representative of the services and solutions that we have evolved and expanded to provide.
