Explore Being Human – Logo and Web Design

Daniel Cook – Portland, OR – 2012
Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe ImageReady, HTML, CSS, PHP and WordPress

My client had the idea for his logo in a dream. It involved a snake with wings, in the form of a spiral. Although there was a spiritual reference to the snake figure, I realized that pulling off a friendly counselor vibe using a snake would be a challenge. The wings ended up becoming the counter-balance to the snake by forming a heart. The cool blue also subdues the image. The type would always be centered, just like the practice. The website for Daniel needed to be simple and open. The photograph of Portland’s Japanese Gardens sets the tone and reinforces the local reference. The content management software is WordPress.

Random Testimonial

Terry has been an incredible asset to us as we build both our nonprofit and our event. The website we created with him has been an invaluable, changing tool that grows along with us. As the outward face of PDX Bridge Festival, it is very important that our website reflect our overall aesthetic and values, and it has been very fun and easy to work with Terry to develop that symbiosis of functionality and good looks. As a new business, building a web presence became one of our first priorities, and we hired Terry at a time when we had very little resources to work with. That investment has given us great returns and we look forward to maintaining this partnership well into the future!
