CSO Refreshes Firm’s Core Purpose and Corporate Logo

CSO today announced that the 58-year-old architecture and interior design firm known as CSO Architects has updated its Core Purpose and Corporate Logo in context of a year-long strategic planning process. The firm will operate and market itself as CSO going forward. The firm’s updated Core Purpose is “To provide design and service excellence for the benefit of our clients, our people, our community, and our environment.”

The new logo and market focus are representative of a renewed commitment to outstanding design and service to their clients. The logo emphasizes CSO (the three letters) and the services the firm provides—architecture and interior design. It includes a modified version of the previous firm logo which has evolved over time. “We have always been proud of our design solutions and commitment to our clients, but as times and people change, it’s important to keep things fresh and take time to re-examine CSO’s core values, inventory the role of technology in our work, and re-establish buy-in from the professionals we lead and collaborate with to advance projects,” said CSO Principal John Rigsbee. We want to develop the most creative solutions and approaches possible—-and challenge the CSO Team to be innovative thinkers and leaders in the industry.”

In addition to hiring the best and the brightest architects and interior designers, CSO remains committed to providing a workplace environment which encourages inspired design and sustainability, and rewards success, community involvement, and intentional professional development.

“We are working hard at CSO to lay the foundation for a future marked by outstanding service and design, both of which contribute significantly to our clients’ success,” said CSO President Alan Tucker. In the next several years, we will be exploring a variety of opportunities to advance new leadership within CSO, and John and I are very excited about the firm’s stability, talent, and future potential.” CSO has a robust K-12 and Higher Education practice, and continues to lead the way in Corporate Development, Hospitality, and Interior Design. In addition, the firm is developing an impressive Healthcare and Advanced Manufacturing and Logistics portfolio.

CSO was established in 1961 and has been responsible for managing and designing some of Central Indiana’s most recognizable and significant projects including the Indianapolis Airport, Circle Centre Mall renovation, JW Marriott, Indiana Historical Society, and the Palladium. Other more recent projects include the Simon-Skjodt Assembly Hall renovation, Purdue Honors College, new Zionsville Town Hall, Westfield High School Stadium, Brownsburg High School renovation, and Indiana Joint Force Headquarters.
