I was working as an independent contractor with Alabama Power at the time this logo was designed. I was sent to a meeting at Alagasco to help brand and market a new program through the State of Alabama that would provide environmental education to children in the state. During the meeting, my partner and I were sketching ideas and one of them was a plant that was bursting through the ground. The rest of the logo took shape soon after. Decades later, you can still find this logo used on materials and Alabama’s Environmental license plate.
