Oregon Logo Design

Nearly every new Oregon  venture understands that they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs fully realize the vital role their business logo will take in their success, or the reason that one business logo works more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term impact on the prosperity of a company, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Oregon businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Oregon coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an old section of the area and hoped to cast a vintage tone without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved the two jobs via creating a symbol design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and also germs made for Oregon clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I remember where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but it does it in a fashion 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog developed for a family enjoyable facility in Oregon.

Cool Springs | 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 additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more dynamic high energy mood.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for Oregon travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather communicate emotional journeys through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo design by employing the positive space in the design to suggest 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 but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

Oregon logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased assessments on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really loved the design and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo recognize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of difficulties, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Oregon book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most crucial part of a published book since it is usually the primary thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever have to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems that in many cases 1 of the traits folks tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to confering a sense of airline flight and it was certainly a success.

Oregon logo design made use of for advertising and also a label design for Vintage Case features an old typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be vintage cases. For this brand design I sought to come up with a logo that provided a fluid vintage feel to it and could be utilized for everything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Oregon, style include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that every single dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities startled in elevation to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a hair design studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that carried a spirit of contentment and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is generally the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the focus on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive operations. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

I tailored their Oregon logo design design using an image which garners the attention of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo design MQ farms, this logo design has actually an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t actually produced for an Oregon  farm it was actually devised for a commodities broker, and this business logo was one of many which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to produce an identity that projects confidence, financial success, and luxury.

Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first try.

Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to develop a business logo which worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
