We’re passionate about simplicity in logo designs. Because we know how shapes and colour affect mood, we use a palette of colours and shapes particularly well-suited for each respective logos. This is evident in all of our work. Effective branding of your business starts with creating a strong visual identity system. Your logo is the focal point of your business’ visual identity. Your logo is your signature. It communicates who you are and is essential to effective and efficient marketing.
A powerful logo identifies your business in all forms of online and offline visual communications. This includes signage, stationery, business cards, invoices, advertising, the Internet and collateral materials. Because it’s the core of your visual identity system, it should be used consistently across all communication platforms to enhance your brand’s recognition and never altered in any way. Whether you’re a Portland business that’s a startup or an established brand that needs a refresh, talk to us about.

The brand representation consists of three kinds of information
Its name, its appearance and other concrete characteristics about the brand.
Either direct or indirect from word-of-mouth or other sources.
The positive or negative feelings a person gets when the brain formulates a brand representation.

"exceeded our requirements. Daniel is a must if you a thinking of a new business or a new look for your current business."
After being with a the largest franchise company in the real-estate world for many years we looked and branching out on our own. The thought of this was very overwhelming… the Logo is the feel the look the strength and the face of your business, by far one of the most important aspects to the look of your business. I had no idea where to start -We had spoken to other companies and the did not have the sharp look we needed.
I was referred to Daniel and would say that his approach, service and knowledge put us at ease immediately. We knew that he knew what we wanted and was so efficient to deliver us so many wonderful ideas and advise. Daniel has a great eye for detail and a flair that is very hard to find but the most refreshing aspect of our experience was his patience and professionalism. We have dealt with so many companies over this transition and this company by far exceeded our requirements. Daniel is a must if you a thinking of a new business or a new look for your current business.
Thank You so much Daniel!

"Why we decided to proceed with Daniel? Clarity"
Being very new to a startup business with no previous experience with design services and had numerous quotes for design packages. It was difficult for us to decide on the appropriate package. There was a lot of competition and cheaper options available. Why we decided to proceed with Daniel? Clarity. We felt Daniel presented our options very honestly. The choice in the end was easy as each package represented value and was clear in what we would receive for a set price. We chose the premium package, and never looked back. Daniel took our briefing for a crisp, professional logo for our healthcare business and with no hassles presented us with options that excited us, and nailed our vision. We had constant communication through the process. Since presentation of our logo, we have been able to contact Daniel with any questions regarding file formatting and incorporation into marketing material. If you feel overwhelmed by the choices out there for design services, choose Daniel Sim. You can be confident in the service, communication, value for money, and his work is beautiful.

"His talent is limitless and he is also one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with."
Finding a designer who shares your esthetic values is paramount to everything when embarking on a design project. I didn’t realize that I would find him all the way on the other side of the world! Thankfully, with the internet, we were able to work together effortlessly. Daniel created the “M2” logo for my pediatric dental practice over four years ago. From the start, we received so many compliments because it was so unique, colorful and fresh. Today, that logo is a brand. I had such a positive experience working with Daniel that I did not hesitate to go to him again with subsequent design projects. His talent is limitless and he is also one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He’s fair, honest, efficient and thorough. I know that we will continue to go to him with our design projects in the future. Why change when everything is great??? Thank you, Daniel, you have been a blessing to our business!

He has been fantastic to work with and we will definitely use him for our additional graphic needs in the future!

"Daniel stood apart from other designers I had contacted."
From the very first point of communication Daniel stood apart from other designers I had contacted. He was warm and friendly and expressed a genuine enthusiasm and interest in my work along with his initial vision for a brand identity. As an artist, I naturally had creative ideas of my own, but Daniel brought my ideas to life, exceeding all expectations with his impressive and beautiful work. He patiently allowed me to express all my thoughts and then directed my thinking towards a clean, eye-catching logo and somehow captured my personality within it, which was true genius seeing as he had never met me. I consider myself privileged to have worked with Daniel and cannot recommend him highly enough.

"Daniel created the artwork for the business card, we were bowled over; it had a wonderful blend of subtlety, colour and content. It was much better than we expected and to our utter amazement, the cards were even better!"
It has been a wonderful experience working with Daniel Sim. Daniel Sim Designs was initially contracted for our corporate logo design, business’ cards and letter heads…as well as envelopes. Daniel came up with various concepts and patiently worked through our requests until we arrived at our final design; a design we were very very pleased with. When Daniel created the artwork for the business card, we were bowled over; it had a wonderful blend of subtlety, colour and content. It was much better than we expected and to our utter amazement, the cards were even better! Following this positive experience, it was only natural that we considered Daniel for the website. Once again he brought out a level of creativity in his work which left us, to put it plainly, dazed. The website speaks for itself…

USE OF COLOUR IN LOGOS
Colour is a powerful driver in influencing positive brand associations, because colour can trigger physiological and psychological reactions in the majority of observers. Colour can subtly influence customers or activate an emotional response in passive visitors. We know that people can make snap like-dislike buying decisions within the first 90 seconds of the first encounter. Logo design colour is integral to your brand’s personality. We use colour, not based on preference, but to seamlessly align your brand’s personality with the intended brand associations we want to communicate.
LOGO DESIGN AESTHETICS
Colour is one major component used to express your brand’s personality via your logo. Shape aesthetics and logo structure is equally important. Shape aesthetics refers to the four dimensions we use to regulate shape when expressing your brand’s personality: • Angularity : sharp, abrupt angles to denote the masculine; soft and continuous curves to denote the movement or a sense of femininity • Symmetry : the visual preference for shapes that have balance • Proportionality : the visual preference for shapes that are proportionately harmonious • Size : focusing on the idea of balance with each component complimenting the whole.
