A family matter — The story of the “Birdy Logo.” 


                 When the company name was created, of course, what naturally followed as an important element was a company logo. 

             The co-founders’ younger son, Dain, while studying for his Bachelor’s Degree in Art at Arizona State University, worked for Abrigo Fire Protection. Inc.  part-time and was commissioned to create the logo.

             In an interesting progression, the logo design went from an overcoat (for protection) - to the protection of an umbrella.  Because the company is based in the Phoenix area, it seemed more appropriate for a lightly clad Aztec sort of character, (inspired by a mixture of Quetzalcoatl and the Phoenix) mixed  with blazing fire hair  carrying a lightweight umbrella (with the appearance of a fire sprinkler head) for protection. 

             Dain, now an accomplished artist holding a master’s degree, has appeared in many Phoenix gallery shows and makes his living doing commission paintings and teaching in the Art Departments of Arizona State University and Phoenix College.
