Local designer Sandy Hill took a trip to Argentina and upon returning was inspired to highlight and honor Albuquerque’s public art in the ways that other world-class cities do.
The card is still a concept but judgement has been made on the new logo for Atkinson Law Firm in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Logos concerning law and justice can be challenging. Just about every conceivable cliche from gavels, to courthouses to the scales of justice have been used. Luckily, our client told us upfront that he didn’t want any of that. Instead, we focused on personality and growth. The result is a logo that is welcoming, comforting and optimistic. It is an approachable logo just like Atkinson Law Firm. Primed for growth, we agree with the settlement.
Word gets around. Check out this nice little feature on MurosAbq.com from our friends down south. It seems even our neighbors appreciate the unique resource that our local artists provide in Albuquerque. Could a MurosRuidoso be on the horizon?
“Albuquerque is an art-filled city, and street art is such an authentic reflection of our heart, soul and people. These pieces deserve our attention.”
Take a look at this awesome television report from local station KRQE about why we built MurosABQ.com Thanks for the sweet report by Allison Martinez.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Murals are everywhere around Albuquerque, and now there’s a website highlighting the best of them and helping you find them.
“There’s something just so artsy about here, I just love driving through,” said muralist Amelia Richardson. “You get to see so many murals and so many mosaics that you don’t get anywhere else.”
Portraying everything from nature and tradition, to history and religion, there’s an abundance of murals around Albuquerque.

We want you to meet the newest member of the Studio Hill family. We’ve replaced our somewhat awkward corporate bicycle with a beautiful 1973 Hercules three speed cruiser. We love getting around downtown without having to worry about parking, plus we get bonus exercise points! So if you see her around be sure to say “Hi”. Her name is Holly and she’s a bit of a flirt. She might even let you take her for a spin.
Thank you, Downtown Albuquerque Arts & Cultural District for trusting Studio Hill with your logo project!
Our goal was to create a fun, accessible brand identity that encompasses the breadth of arts + culture goings-on in the downtown district.
Let’s all support our dynamic local art scene!
The Arts & Cultural District creatively supports the arts and culture ecosystem of Downtown Albuquerque. They magnify the reach and capacity of innovative organizations and individuals, forging a vibrant and prosperous downtown community for everyone.
