Beaverton, Oregon Logo Design

Each and every new Beaverton organization understands that they are in need of a logo, however few new business owners entirely recognize the key role their logo design will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo functions far better than another. A business logo has an instant and sustaining influence on the financial success of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a company.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Beaverton, Oregon businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require contemplation, they can be realized in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Beaverton, Oregon coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an older section of the city and wished to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs by means of developing a business logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs developed for Beaverton, Oregon clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite 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 an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping green frog designed for a family enjoyable center in Beaverton, Oregon.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really resonate an atmosphere 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - created for Beaverton, Oregon travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the images they record. 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 the majority of good photographers in that they frequently share whole stories through their photography.

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

 Beaverton logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I truly 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective point of views on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo job has it’s portion of challenges, however the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, yet it is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book store.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many cases 1 of the aspects consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a spirit of air travel and it was undoubtedly a victory.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Beaverton, Oregon, style consist of an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects considering that it seems that virtually every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo but 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 profession.

I actually love doing dentistry logo designs 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 clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters startled in height 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 design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to describe precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo design created for a hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which carried a spirit of calmness and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious path of creating simply a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is generally the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

The kernel connects the system 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 and computer hardware.

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

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to market their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Beaverton logo dsign with an illustration which captures the interest of traffic and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors.

Luckily, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the first shot.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the proprietor to develop a logo design that worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
