At DBD one of our favorite things in the whole world is designing beautiful and functional logos for clients both big and small! One thing that our clients often wonder is how the logo will look in context – how will it look on a t-shirt, on signage, on cards, or even on a coffee mug. We can actually help you with that by creating realistic logo mock-ups of a variety of placements. Just like these mockups you see here of our own logo. None of these objects actually exists, but they could. Give us a ring.      ...

Not only is LiquidBook a great development company, but they are also our long-term collaborators on large, custom website design and build projects. It's only fair then that we returned the favor by giving their existing brand a nice, sophisticated design update. The new book mark (sorry, we can’t resist a good pun) is sprightly, clean and perfectly simple. Just like the code that LiquidBook creates. See what we did there?...

Working with an existing wall-mounted frame, we created these graphic elements for the New Deal Distillery sign at their new location at SE Salmon in Distillery Row. See? Recycling is good for the environment and good for design. ...

Tanya Luken CPA is an accounting firm in Portland, Oregon with a diverse clientele. The firm needed a card that was as simple and direct as its founder, but could also read as both “serious” for more business-minded clients and “hip” for their creative-minded clients. The card, with an image of a vintage abacus that wraps from front to back and a hand-drawn type-face that reads as 60s-modern or funky crafter, serves both sides of the business admirably, adding up to the perfect brand. Plus, we designed the cool privacy window treatment for their offices shown above.  ...

We’ve been too busy to post any new stuff to the blog lately, but we wanted to share these nice new business card designs for studio-98, a contemporary candid wedding (and event) photography studio in the Northwest. Not coincidentally, we’re also working on their new website that we hope to share with you soon....
