Redmond, Oregon Logo Design

Every new Redmond organization understands that they need a logo, yet few new business owners fully are aware of the pivotal role their business logo will play in their financial success, or exactly why one logo works better than another. A logo has an immediate and long term impact on the prosperity of a company, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a company.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Redmond, Oregon companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require scrutiny, they can be realized in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any type of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bicycle created for a Redmond, Oregon coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually launching in an older section of town and really wanted to visualize a retro atmosphere without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by means of developing a symbol concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide as well as bacteria made for Redmond, Oregon medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the only instance I recall where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Generally I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet it does it in a way 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 appealing, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members fun facility in Redmond, Oregon.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really resonate 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing. 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 fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - made for Redmond, 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 fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead project emotional journeys through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they often tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo design by utilizing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Redmond logo but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Redmond logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the customer 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 my customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family did not share his aversion for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get objective judgements on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they adored the design and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their business logo understand how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of hurdles, however the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Redmond, 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 vital part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever get to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it looks like that in many occurrences one of the things people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a feeling of air travel and it was surely a success.

 Redmond logo layout used for advertising and marketing and a label layout for Vintage Instance features an old typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Redmond, Oregon, layout include an arc with lines converging with it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects because it appears that almost every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

I actually love doing dentistry logo designs simply 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 offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that does not 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 evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to represent a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to relate.

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

Logo style created for a hair style workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo that related a feeling of peace and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo design that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is more often than not the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive operations. The kernel links 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 logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify 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 business and in many cases the significance supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Redmond logo dsign with a graphic which captures the interest of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew 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 peaceful habitat.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo design wasn’t really developed for an Redmond, Oregon regional farm it was actually developed for a commodities broker, and this logo design was one of many that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to make an identity that projects assurance, success, and luxury.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to discover any idea 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 case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked closely with the business owner to design a logo design that worked extremely 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 signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
