These are my three identity directions for my historic railway system. The name of 1848 is the year that the American steam engine was introduced, and it backs up the companies mission in terms of educating its members. I am really trying to reference an era, and to not re-create it. I am trying to contrast this by using bright modern colors and typefaces mixed with old illustrations and tactics. For example the helvetica typeface is modern and is being contrasted with a nostalgic illustration of an American steam engine silhouette.
