Wilsonville Logo Design

Each and every new Wilsonville company knows they require a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the vital role their logo design can perform in their success, or why one logo performs more effectively than another. A logo design has a critical and long term effect on the financial success of a business, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Wilsonville companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.

  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Wilsonville coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an older section of the area and wanted to cast a nostalgic feel without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved both tasks by creating a custom logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs created for Wilsonville medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that deals with the laboratory examination of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog designed for a family enjoyable center in Wilsonville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 name itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Wilsonville travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead communicate emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they often convey 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 that can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo 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  Wilsonville logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Wilsonville logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly 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 form as a stroke in the letter A but my client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they adored the concept 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 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 create their business logo realize how important a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s share of hurdles, however the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Wilsonville, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dentist 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 fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

I actually love doing dental care logos simply 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 clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in height to stand for a family with in the layout.

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 residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to 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 wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair design workshop including a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that communicated an atmosphere of calmness and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of designing merely a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the main focus on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection between the software and 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 spell out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.
