US Gypsum Company

US Gypsum Company
A Construction Materials Manufacturer

US Gypsum were the largest manufacturer of gypsum-based building materials in North America, including paints, wallboard and other high-volume building products. DesignMarks was assigned to develop a new corporate logo, as well as design out its usage on corporate business materials; product labels and watermarks, retail displays, and trade show exhibits.

Our designers felt the strong United States identification – both in the company name and production – would be assurance of both material quality and stable delivery for the domestic construction industry. Red, white and blue was a natural.

US Gypsum Company has now become USG Corporation, allowing it to expand its range of materials manufacturing beyond gypsum. And sadly, our Old Glory logo no longer waves from wallboard o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
