Troutdale Logo Design

Nearly every new Troutdale organization knows they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly grasp the essential role their organization logo can perform in their success, or why one logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and long-term impact on the prosperity of a company, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Troutdale businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand consideration, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 unique, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an older part of town and wished to cast a retro feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by means of designing a company logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria created for Troutdale clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the clinical assessment of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but 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 makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a family members fun center in Troutdale.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 usual of the kinds of jobs which 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 ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear 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 really reflect 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy impression.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Troutdale 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 niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but rather project emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo design 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 oftentimes tell 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 conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something the same 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  Troutdale logo but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Troutdale logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however 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 but my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral opinions on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really liked the concept 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their business logo realize how important a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s share of difficulties, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Troutdale publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, but it is the most crucial part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. With respect to a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems like that in many cases one of the items people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a spirit of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Troutdale, design include an arc with lines converging via it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it appears that every single dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably have 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 design nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

I really love doing dental care business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, 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 designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for 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 logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too 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 don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo that communicated a feeling of tranquility and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious path of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is generally the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts 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 describe anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.
