Dowling Duncan Logo

Two former Pentagram designers have teamed up to join forces, announcing this week that they’ve combined their two independent shops into one international company. John Dowling and Rob Duncan, both formerly of Pentagram’s London office from the late-90s to the mid-2000s (the latter also worked at their San Francisco office), have founded Dowling | Duncan, with the first representing the UK and the second in the Bay Area. Dowling’s work you might recall best was designing those handsome Pantone chip books every firm and agency likely has a few, well-used copies of laying around. Duncan, who was a senior designer at Pentagram, and was also briefly at Apple, has worked on projects for everyone from the GAP to the AIGA. Always nice to see two good people wind up together, even if they are separated by a fairly large distance, and we wish them and their new company all the best.

Below are some of their logo designs, my favourites include Hive & Honey, Town MVP, Rebecca Beeson and NCM Interiors.

    Nice designs- noticed something funny though. The “Cool Gardens” logo – top right- is literally the exact same logo as Grant Cardone’s logo (just google Grant Cardone and you will see what I mean on his website). I wonder if Grant’s designer copied this, or if it was just a complete coincidence!

    I am curious to see what impact (if any) this has on preventing people from smoking and/or getting them to quit. I’d also like to see if any other countries attempt to pass similar laws and how/if public opinion and the ability to pass similar laws varies.

    here i need a logo design:
    I would like a logo that is simple and professional. The name of the company is “Agilevent”. We are a custom mobile software development shop that performs development for Android, iOS and WP7 platforms. We also develop web applications using NodeJS and Ruby on Rails.
    I would like the logo to be easily printed or embroidered on shirts and other clothing items. I would like the logo to be readable as wel.
