I currently consider this work for Matchstick to be the best logo I have ever created. From the undulating wood grain lines and how they provide a contrast for the mechanical straight lines of the M, to the color choices and overall dynamic of the shapes with the word mark.
The client tasked me with creating an updated version of their very "childish" logo that they had been using for years with something professional and modern. After a few pencil sketches, I pushed them in this direction, and luckily they agreed. Great minds think alike?
Doc-Mate is an app that connects truckers and trucking companies to help create efficiencies in hauling cargo. The needed a logo that expressed a strong trucking vibe, but that would also fit within an app icon. The long trailer version is for the website.
A sample of the best small business logos I have made over the last few years, including my own “XII” mark.
All In Distillery
I typically make very minimalistic logos, but sometimes the client needs something a bit more traditional. I created this logo around the client’s clever concept: They are a whiskey distiller, in Indiana, who sell exclusively to casinos. You get the double pun of “all-in” from poker, and from being in INdiana. Clever! A lot of detail in this one for sure.
This aptly named structure serves as the go-to pop up store in the Portland region. Made out of simple packing containers, the client wanted a simple, yet bold logo for his business.
Paper House Piñatas
The fastest logo I ever created (45 minutes), yet still one of my all time favorites. The client asked for simple and modern, so I used a clean font, with just a bit of tweaking of the letters to make it unique. The border is reminiscent of the colorful cut tissue paper used on the outside of the piñatas.
Maecenas et augue eget lorem hendrerit dictum eget a magna. Praesent venenatis finibus luctus. Fusce hendrerit neque ultricies dolor porta fringilla. Maecenas non nisl placerat, pharetra quam ut, sodales eros. Duis ultricies in quam non elementum. Aliquam faucibus, augue a blandit laoreet, sem velit scelerisque odio, a viverra dolor erat vel mauris. Nunc eget ligula at velit feugiat accumsan in nec quam. Cras elit ante, convallis eu mattis sit amet, malesuada eu tellus. Vivamus elit dui, rhoncus ac velit id, vestibulum facilisis purus. Aliquam imperdiet ultricies pellentesque. Morbi at odio eu sapien venenatis congue.
Local super-star bartender, Daniel Guillen, needed and identity of his own for his specialty cocktail nights around the Dallas area. I created this logo to feel "Prohibition era", including his signature blue glasses and custom jigger.
Dayton Property Group tasked me with modernizing their suite of company logos. You can see the original logo at the bottom.
Dayton is expanding their property portfolio, and wanted the logo to suggest a rippling water effect.
haus-of-izo is a start up fashion brand specializing in women's clothing, jewelry, and accessories.
I was tasked with using a limited and muted color scheme to create something clean and light. I created my own font for the word mark, and used a simple hexagon motif to represent a nod to the shape of a house. The three hexagons represent clothing, jewelry, and accessories.
Bros Being Basic
The manager of the extremely popular Instagram profile, Bros Being Basic, tasked me with creating a "Bad Ass" logo for her to use for branding. If you follow the feed, you will see that is basically guys doing silly things to make fun of Basic girls on Instagram, so we need to show Masculine and Feminine at the same time. So an emoji skull pair with crossed Rosé bottles!
Seattle's oldest dispensary needed a rebrand after the state of Washington passed new laws limiting how companies are branded.
I worked with the client closely to create not only suite of logos, but also outdoor signage.
Twitch.tv is a website where video gamers, musicians, and even creatives like myself can host their own online show. I was commissioned to make these logos for some fantastic streamers who found out about my work from my own stream! >>>
