Kinetic Branding took an unprecedented move to design a logo for a new organization that did not ask us to design their logo. In fact, the startup company already had a logo that they presented to the world on their website. Why did Kinetic do such a thing?
We love design. We love branding. We love to communicate the core felt needs of a company to their consumers. We felt that the logo they initially designed did not accurately communicate the core values of the company, so we offered an alternative approach.
Frank is a social media platform that allows users to voice their first amendment free speech and express opinions without fear of being cancelled.
The logo mark designed by Kinetic is in the shape of an "F" for Frank. The "F" is also made up of red and blue talk bubbles representing a dialog. And finally, the red and blue talk bubbles represent the American flag which stands in part for free speech.
The logos shown below are the company's various attempts at a logo design for the new online business.
Kinetic wishes Frank the best as they embark into the world of social media and defend America's freedom of speech.
In designing a company logo, negative space can be a very positive asset for your company's brand identity and draw people to connect with your products or services. Negative space refers to any visual space that surrounds or appears within a subject, and it’s a great way to highlight a relationship between different elements of your company's brand. Clever usage of negative space can provide consumers with a positive response and an affinity for your brand when they discover that visual "Easter egg."
Below are a few examples of how Kinetic Branding has used negative space when designing company logos. (Click on a logo below to enlarge)
Kinetic Branding recently updated a logo for Cascade Security, a security company, by simplifying the design and making a memorable brand identity.
The new logo maintains a similar brush stroke design style, while minimizing the design and better reflecting the local mountain terrain.

Kinetic Branding recently completed a logo redesign for Family School International, a non-profit parenting organization that aids parents in establishing a framework that will help their families operate more smoothly, so that all members can feel confident, satisfied and hopeful.
One of the organization's core Brand Emotions is "Nurturing," which is a desire of a parent to engage in products and services that benefit their children. Kinetic focused on this emotion for their logo design showing the gentle and loving relationship between the parent and baby bird.

Kinetic Branding recently completed a new logo design for KD Construction Services, an Oregon home builder. Prior to designing the logo, Kinetic proposed the shorter DBA name "KD Homes" which the client liked. By using "Homes" instead of "Construction Services," the name accurately reflects what they build and it's easier to remember and write out.
With a pleasant and warm green and dark walnut-brown color combination and a shorter name, the company's new logo says more visually about their craftsmanship and quality than the old logo could.
Kinetic recently completed a rebranding project for Norman Building & Design, a high-end custom home building and remodeling company. (Click on the images below to see a larger version)
Kinetic redesigned the Norman logo in a simplistic and elegant fashion. The new logo picks up a color palette of the materials Norman Building & Design uses in their custom home designs. The two triangles and rectangle creates a negative "N" shape that stands for Norman.
The old Pyramid logo was originally designed based on the Egyptian pyramids in the desert, but really had nothing to do with heating and cooling a home. The company sought not only a new brand identity design, but one that was meaningful and would connect with homeowners.
The new logo identity design has colors that represent the warm and cool temperatures that the company provides control of homeowners, The new pyramid design no longer is an ancient ruin, but a modern and powerful symbol that captures attention and creates interest in the company.
