Weekly Logo Roundup 2 – So long and thanks for all the fish!

February 16th, 2013 Posted by Logo Examples No Comment yet

Here are some of our favourite logos for the week. Carrying on with the trend from last week we’ve got another tech company in communications (we really enjoyed designing that logo) and a logo project for a photographer.

ALM Communications

Here’s a company that installs, upgrades, reconfigures or removes RF equipment for mobile phone carries. This means that the company owner is in a shelter on the ground or on top of a building in the city hanging over the edge installing new antennas.

Because of his quirky sense of humour (self-described), the company owner was drawn to some of the fun and unexpected logos we’ve done (like this plumbing logo here), and wanted something with a similar feel.

Communications Logo 1

Here’s the logo that was ultimately chosen. Remember that can-telephone game you played as a kid? Well here’s a logo with that concept. For a company that deals with very serious technology, this logo is unexpected and certainly memorable.

Communications Logo 2

When dealing with the theme of communication, we thought of outer space communications and the SETI project. This logo is not only friendly, but also suggests that ALM Communication can handle signals from far reaches of space.

Communications Logo 3

And here’s another quirky logo. While you might see dolphins as intelligent mammals with sophisticated signal patterns of communication (they totally are by the way), we envisioned this logo with a Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy vibe to it (yup. We’re all fans here). So long and thanks for all the fish!

Photography Logo 1

We do a bit of logos for photographers. Usually they are used for watermarking the photos, sometimes as profiles for social media sites, often on business cards. Here’s one version of a photography logo we’ve done for Adam JD Photography.

Photography Logo 2

And here’s another logo we did for Adam JD Photography. Not Adam’s favourite, but it was ours.

3 Violon

3 Violon is a Swiss skiing team. They handle the toughest slopes, so they wanted a tough looking logo.

Sport team logo

The logo colors have a light to dark treatment, which added to the feel of intensity of the logo. In the middle we added 3 mountains to echo the ‘3’ in the team’s name and added a ski mask to make a tough looking skier out of this mark. The ski poles are criss-crossed to give a pirate look, again to communicate tough team persona.


All Plumbing Enterprises & Their Brand New Logo

November 18th, 2012 Posted by Custom Logo Design, Logo Examples No Comment yet


All Plumbing Enterprises is growing – They need a new logo!

I want the logo to make the homeowner want to pick up the phone and call me for their plumbing needs

That’s it. Those were all the client’s instructions. Not really a lot of direction is it?
But sometimes that’s all we need. Especially in this case, since our client seemed very open to whatever we design.

We ended up breaking down our designs into 3 themes:
> 1 traditional logo
> 1 friendly logo and,
> 1 memorable-fun logo (pictured above).

We are sure that it would get proper attention if it was on the side of a company van. Inspiration from the traditional pirate’s skull and bones, but with the kind of colours and design that would suggest a friendlier company – one that certainly would not go on a plundering spree while servicing a client.

Logo Version 2 – The Friendly Design


Logo Version 3 – The Traditional Design


Ultimately the traditional logo was the one our client intended to use for his business, but who knows, maybe after sleeping on it, he’ll reconsider and go with our personal favourite…


Birck’s Industrial Supply Logo Redesign

October 7th, 2012 Posted by Client Case Studies, Custom Logo Design, Logo Examples No Comment yet

We change our hairstyles, our clothes, our look, all the time. Certain styles go out of fashion so we reinvent ourselves to stay fresh and connected within our culture. The very same evolution is important for businesses as well. Take Birck’s Industrial Supply for example.

During their early operations, Birck’s wordmark logo had elements of a local round-the-corner business. It was the kind of logo you would expect to see at a place where you knew the owner by name. In other words it inspired trust:


This made sense, since Birck’s has been serving Richmond, Indiana and surrounding area since 1906 and remains 100% family owned and operated till this day. At the same time as Birck’s list of products and the areas they serve grew, their business website became a more important selling medium for showcasing themselves and their services to potential customers outside of their immediate area.

Such growth required a logo facelift to inspire trust and appeal to clients that were in another part of the country.

Client requested something:

Simple, clean and professional

And shared a competitor’s logo that they liked.

These instructions and illustrations were great, and we were able to deliver:

Second Business Logo Designs


Third Business Logo Design:


Finally a combination of versions one and three lead to this successful professional logo design:

Chosen Company Logo Deign:


Birck’s has been around since 1906, so you know they are doing something right!

Here’s how our client described their company:

We are an industrial supply business focusing on supplying customers with all of their Fastener, Abrasive, Material Handling, and MRO supplies. We pride our business on offering excellent products, customer based service, and competitive pricing to help you run your business more efficiently.

We feel that this logo is a great match for Birck’s Industrial Supply, and we wish them another 100 years of successful operations.

Really a great company. Check them out here:
