Tualatin, Oregon Logo Design

Each and every new Tualatin company realizes that they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly recognize the essential role their organization’s logo can play in their financial success, or exactly why one logo functions more effectively than another. A logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the financial success of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Tualatin, Oregon businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to movie screens a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any 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 stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be ageless and will feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were opening up in an older part of town and wanted to project an old-fashioned feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by developing a company logo concept that features 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 and germs made for Tualatin, Oregon clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, yet it does it in a way 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 name that makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and much more meaningful.

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 additionally 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 medical professionals, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location 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, eventually 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 impression.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - made for Tualatin, Oregon travel digital 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead project emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they oftentimes share entire stories through 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 fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something much 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Tualatin logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Tualatin logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however my customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral opinions on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really loved 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design comprehend how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design job has it’s share of obstacles, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, however it is the most critical part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the initial thing a person views in the book store.

The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 dental profession.

I really enjoy doing dental logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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 depictive of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny 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 precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you 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 will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which communicated an atmosphere of calmness and class for their new hair studio. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious path of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead created a logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is generally the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the focus on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

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 business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining 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 behind a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a spot to market their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Tualatin logo dsign with an illustration which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

I’ve crafted quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the owner to create a business logo that worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
