Weekly Logo Roundup 4

Custom Logo Design, Logo Examples


This was a fun week. So many exciting new companies, and a lot of them not what you’d call “little guys”. Then again, maybe we’re just looking down the road, when these companies will be HUGE!

Oak Bay

Here we begin with a custom logo for a medical clinic.

Medical Clinic Logo Design 1

The logo is a clever combination of an oak leaf and something with a nautical theme – a sail. The logo is quite minimalistic and makes a great watermark (especially on the letterheads we designed later for this medical clinic). oak bay clinic custom logo design

Medical Clinic Logo Design 2

And here’s the same idea, but executed a bit differently. Now the logo has some extra elements and “more sail”. The oak leaf meanwhile almost acts like the sail’s reflection in the water. oak bay clinic custom logo design 2

Noyo Arts

Here’s a company that patronizes the arts, and has a great future ahead of it. It provides trendy, avant-garde and fashionable people with a premium urban photography, media and events experience.

Photography & Entertainment Industry Logo Design 1

This was probably our favourite logo. The camera lens is there, the corner markers force your eye to focus, while reminding you that this is what photography is all about – aiming at that scene before it changes into something else and capturing it. The font is modern and meets the requirements our client set out for us. photography custom logo design 1

Photography & Entertainment Industry Logo Design 2

Or maybe this was our favourite. The element of photography is anything but subtle here, with an image of a camera on a tripod that simultaneously represents the letter “A”. That whole tripod profile view of the camera suggested vintage, and we thought that was cool. photography custom logo design 2

Client liked version 2 of the logo, but wanted it to be a bit more modern. Here’s one of the revisions along its way of becoming the final logo that’s in use by our client now. It looks more modern, and without the camera, or any imagery really, the Noyo Arts is not pigeonholed into anything, and can evolve as the company grows. photography custom logo design 3 Here’s the Noyo Arts website, go buy some art!


Finally here’s another project that we really enjoyed. It’s a logo for a hip bakery. Everything is done with muffins, muffins that have crazy flavours like Pizza and French Toast!

Even though we’ve done a few more traditional designs as well, the only ones we wanted to share are these minimalistic designs. We love them and hopefully you do too! bakery-custom-logo-design If you’re in the area, grab a bite. Here’s their site: muffingtons.com

Planning Your Logo?

As you look for a logo designer, keep in mind that a designer needs to pair creativity with great technical expertise. For example:

  • If the wrong design program is used, your logo will blur when resized.
  • If unprintable colors are used, your logo will look wrong when printed.
  • If final quality control is skipped, your logo will have costly mistakes.

Business owner trying to save a few bucks just end up paying twice to redo their logo and reprint their marketing material. Avoid surprises, by learning about impossible colors, vector graphics, and the importance of quality control. Learn more
