We just heard that the logo we created for Eggers and Associates is going to be published in the first book of the Logo Lounge Master Library. The volume won't be out for a year, but we're quite pleased right here and now! Eggers & Associates is a medical device research and development company that needed a brand that was clean, strong and “precise” — a nice reflection of the high-tech products developed by Eggers. Our solution was to cut through a solid space with two “scalpels” to create the Eggers “E” mark....

We are patting ourselves on the back after learning that two logos we designed and illustrated were chosen by Logo Lounge for inclusion in their 5th compendium of logo designs.

This next logo was a re-brand for a personal and professional consulting company founded by Michelle DeAngelis, known from her many television appearances and her previous venture, Planet Joyride. A sought-after consultant, speaker,...

We created these full-page ads for the Gorge Games to be used in national sports-specific magazines. The client wanted an in-your-face concept that would appeal to adventure sports athletes, and we delivered! Sample copy by Deluxe: "Think you've got what it takes? Gorge Games will thrash you, make you cry like a baby, and if you're tough enough -- make you a star. Come to the Pacific Northwest and battle the Gorge." The awesome sports photos are by Richard Hallman...

There are a bunch of new magazines launching in the Portland, Oregon market right now. Mix and Homes + Gardens Northwest from The Oregonian are already launched and Portland Spaces from the publishers of Portland Monthly is coming soon. Here are 2 full-page ads we did for Madison Millinger and JD Madison for the launch of Homes + Gardens Northwest.
