New Energy Works Logo from the 80-90s
Arguably the first New Energy Works logo, when solar was still a part of our business.

There are times when we take a moment and say, “wait—where are we going?” and maybe we add in a little “how the heck did we get here?” and potentially “who are we?”.

Questions arise as a company grows. New folks come with new ideas. The previous generation becomes the teacher to the new. The industry evolves. Technology changes capabilities. Trends affect style, style affects clients (or is it the other way around?). The planet cries mercy and business decisions are influenced.

How then, with all of this movement and change, could this snippet of your company, THE LOGO, possibly stay the same forever?

The second New Energy Works logo, when Timberframers was added to the logo. In this case the Housewrights & Joiners was on the back of the t-shirt—a two-part logo.

A few years back we had the pleasure of designing, raising, and enclosing this right-sized timber frame in Ithaca, NY. A forever home for antique collectors, this New York Finger Lakes timber frame is farmhouse/craftsman aesthetic. The full timber frame has an open living area and master suite on the main level with smaller privatized spaces. Our thanks to Log & Timber Living magazine for featuring it in their Small House Savvy & Downsizing Done Right edition. Download a PDF of the article by clicking here.

“How many blocks did you say?!” My face must have shown my surprise as Charlie chuckled at me, staring down on custom wall panels in our fine woodworking shop. At this point they were ready for shipping, so while not fully assembled, the undulating wave of dimensional blocks of colors was none the less impressive. 4000 (yes, 4000) at 5 varying heights was the answer. In all—12 different colors, each expertly applied and finished by Hans in his otherworldly looking finishing room.

Poplar, Maple, and Douglas fir were used for this “Pixel Wall” art project. Completed, it is 7’ tall by 18’ spanning behind a reception counter in a newly built apartment complex in New Jersey. Balongue Design brought our team this project, including the specific colors but no specific pattern. That was up to the creativity of NEWwoodworks. We love when they have creative freedom!
