Oregon Logo Design

Every new Oregon business person understands that they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly realize the pivotal role their organization’s logo will play in their success, or the reason that one logo functions better than another. A logo has a critical and long term influence on the prosperity of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of an organization.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Oregon  companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require contemplation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from labels to signboards a scalable logo design will be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be timeless and will feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.
Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Oregon, Oregon coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were opening up in an old part of the area and wished to cast a vintage feel without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by creating a business logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and germs designed for Oregon, Oregon medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which works with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I recall where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a household enjoyable facility in Oregon, Oregon.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really reflect an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Oregon, Oregon travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather project emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo by employing the positive space in the design to voice one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Oregon logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Oregon logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design projects that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased assessments on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really liked the design and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how important a logo is for their business so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of obstacles, but the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Oregon, Oregon publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, however it is the most important part of a printed book considering that it is usually the very first thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it looks like that in many cases 1 of the things people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a good sense of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Oregon logo style utilized for advertising and also a label layout for Vintage Instance features an antiquated typeface design.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Oregon, Oregon, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

I actually love doing dental business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which projected a sense of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious course of creating merely a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the focus on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk operations. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Oregon logo dsign utilizing a graphic that garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Thankfully, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo made for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is reminiscent of a renowned sports team logo.

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked closely with the business owner to develop a logo that worked very well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
