Tigard, Oregon Logo Design

Nearly every new Tigard organization realizes that they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs entirely recognize the vital role their organization logo can play in their financial success, or precisely why one logo design functions far better than another. A logo design has an instant and sustaining impact on the success of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Tigard, Oregon coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening in an older part of the town and wanted to project a retro vibe without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both jobs by means of creating a trademark design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide as well as germs created for Tigard, Oregon clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which works with the clinical assessment of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet it does it in a fashion that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and even more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable center in Tigard, Oregon.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 norm of the kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, 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 title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually 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 provide the logo a much more lively high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I designed was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - made for Tigard, Oregon traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories using 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 frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with mere words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo design by using 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Tigard logo but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get honest assessments on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their business logo recognize how crucial a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of challenges, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most important part of a printed book given that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA logo designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems like that in many cases 1 of the aspects individuals often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to confering a good sense of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Tigard logo layout utilized for marketing as well as a tag design for Vintage Case includes an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Tigard, Oregon, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it appears that every single dental professional incorporates 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 advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 dentistry profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually 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 concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Many 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 concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to summarize exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo style developed for a hair style workshop 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 company logo which related an atmosphere of simplicity and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a company logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is generally the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the emphasis on the feeling that they wanted to project to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive management. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection between the software and computer hardware.

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

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 lovers the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Tigard logo design dsign along with an image that pulls in the interest of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

The MQ farms brand concept wasn’t actually developed for an Tigard, Oregon area farm it was actually designed for a commodities broker, and this creative logo was one of several which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Fortunately, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo developed for using a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font style that is evocative a well-known sporting activities group logo.

I have crafted loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project where I worked closely with the business owner to create a logo which worked very 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 neon signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
