• The Evolution of Our Name to Logan Simpson

    We’ve done it. We’ve dropped LSD.

    Until recently, the acronym for our landscape architecture design and environmental planning firm was “LSD,” which stood variously for Logan Simpson & Dye, and later, Logan Simpson Design, Inc. But as our 25th anniversary approached, we began to spruce up our image with a new logo and refine our mission for the next quarter-century. Our thoughts turned to whether our name was truly representative of all the work we do—which now stands at about 20 percent design, 26 percent environmental services, 14 percent community and general planning, and 40 percent cultural resources services.
