70+ Additional Logo Designs
If you’ve stumbled upon this page, you may want to review our Portfolio Page first to see our featured designs.
While some of the logo designs and brand developments below are not in our featured portfolio, we often direct clients here for them to review a certain style, color, icon, typographical handling or another aspect of the process relative to their objectives.
These identities vary significantly in scope, budget and level of development, but in addition to our featured portfolio items, demonstrate our abilities in diverse design styles. We design brands that match our client’s objectives… not our personal design preferences!

The city of New Richmond has had a long history of social conflicts. A few active community members, initially tasked with bringing a better local economy, through collaborative engagement began a weekly meeting group where community members could openly discuss local matters without political influence and state their differences in opinion in a friendly and welcoming environment. The group later evolved their objectives from talking to taking action. We created a logo and website to give an identity to their objectives of facilitating communication and action.

In this example, it allowed us to compare our product advantages against the disadvantages of the additional sugar and caloric intake of cranberry juice.

The brand identity is supplemented by strong, standardized visual graphical elements (in this case, photos of the 3-stage setup process with time frames to demonstrate the quickness of the setup).
This resort had an old logo with two fonts that they loved. As we worked on a few print materials, we determined that the logo just wasn’t going to work, so we whipped up this quick and simple version.

Another simple, low budget logo design for a service offering.
