Armstrong Flooring

Rebrand for a legacy company
Brand Identity, Design System 
Designed at imre


For over 150 Years, Armstrong Flooring has been a leader in floor manufacturing and design. As part of their evolution and separation from their parent company, Armstrong Flooring sought a new identity that holds true to their legacy while embracing their future.

Dating back to its founding, the Armstrong “A” was first used as an identifier on top of the cork plugs they manufactured. The customized new glyph acknowledges the original circle "A" while creating a more distinct and ownable icon that seamlessly integrates with the full wordmark.





Other visual elements such as icons and product marks were given an update to match the style of the new identity and reinforce it’s clarity.
