BQT CAPITAL is the fastest capital and merchant financing business on the market.
The branding was to represent a strong and steadfast way to get business funding from a reliable source. With some research this quote stood out to me, "Gold was money in ancient Greece. The Greeks mined for gold throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East regions by 550 B.C., and both Plato and Aristotle wrote about gold and had theories about its origins. Gold was associated with water (logical, since most of it was found in streams), and it was supposed that gold was a particularly dense combination of water and sunlight." 
Inspiration set in for a collor pallete and mood board to begin the logo. Gold for the steadfast capital and navy for the ocean that carried this resource far and wide across the land.
These were some alternate versions of the logo created during the design process.
Ultimately the solid ceter line previaled with the damask pattern following up as a close second.
