Iconic Pet Logo Design
Pet Logo Design
Northside Pet Connection is a non-profit organization in Coulterville, California. They seek ways and provide means for low cost spay and neuter services for cats and dogs in the communities of Lake Don Pedro, Coulterville, Groveland, Big Oak Flat, and Greeley Hill California.
I worked with Northside to update their current pet logo design, and came up with some vector versions that could be used more effectively. Vector (EPS) files use mathematical calculations to blow up and shrink the logo so that it can be resized with ZERO loss in quality. This is so important when getting a logo designed. Without an EPS / vector version of your logo, you’re left to deal with the size of the JPG (or whatever format) file that the logo was created in. How can you create a website, billboards, and high-quality print-ready brochures, flyers, and business cards all with the same size logo? You can’t. So step one was to create a vector logo from their existing logo.
Original Northside Pet Connection logo
The first step was to create a vector drawing out of the JPG file they sent. Here are some examples I sent to Northside Pet Connection to show them how versatile a vector version could be. You can change the colors and put the logo on any color background. It can also be sized to whatever width and height needed without any loss in quality.
After creating a vector version of the drawing, I gave them some options for an “updated” version of this logo. Instead of running the text around the drawing in a circle, I created a few options with the logo text in different positions. My goal was to create a variety of options that were easier to read and modernized the style of the logo a bit.
After creating a vector format for the original logo, I explored a couple more pet logo design options for a more modern, streamlined iconic logo. These were completely new designs I created that still used a dog and cat but really different styles of illustration. Northside Pet Connection was able to choose from either the vector version of the original logo or one of the other options I came up with. They chose this version as their final logo. I think it was a great choice :)
