Symbol and logotype for Quick Maid, designer Norman Moore

Cover of brochure

1972-1974

Freddie Krebs, one of Barbour Index’s key men, left to undertake the upgrading of this hitherto rather undistinguished company and, among many other things, enlisted us to invest it with some graphic style. We designed a symbol that we wished to be seen as a Q or as a top view of a cup and saucer, or both. Some people saw neither; perhaps we should have stuck to a French maid motif after all.
