Don’t turn pale just yet! We know, medical logo design can be scary to approach. But with a little check up we’ll have you feeling confident in your stylistic direction. Whether you’re starting private practice or just need some creative circulation, we’ve put together the perfect dose of medical and doctor logo designs for you. To make it painless, we’ve broken it down into four categories: modern, tech, cute, and wellness. Take a deep breath and be well.
Modern doctor logos
One aspect of modern medical logos which make them feel current is their use of “soft” corners and curves. The Whole Medix logo, for example uses a thick line which gently curves at each corner to illustrate a flying bird. This technique is echoed by the three logos featuring a medical cross as well—each rounding the edges in their own way. In a different use of curvature, the logo for Tueo Health incorporates a geometric half-dome. This technique creates a slightly more sophisticated feel, yet retains a harmless and protective aura.
Techie medical logos
Unlike our previous examples, tech doctor logos aren’t afraid to show some sharp corners. These corners come as no surprise given that the medical industry is very concerned with precision. The Zdogg MD, Migelino and Activity Exchange logos are three great examples with hard tech edges. With that said, not all tech logos are “sharp”. Take for example the Meditrack logo which showcases technology in a different way—through it’s pixel-perfect gradient and transparent effects. Similarly, the Evolution Health logo uses a complex overlay of shapes and colors that couldn’t be accomplished without technology.
Cute doctor’s office logos
The medical world is a scary place for many, especially children. For that reason, we see a bounty of cute and friendly logos designed to help patients relax. Check out Dr. LuLu, who has chosen to use an illustrative self-representation happily skipping between two colorful flowers. Health coaching service Pair Up also uses an illustrated character but this time it’s a fun pair mascot! Bellville Dentil Care and Stork Home both use gentle soaring bird illustrations while Doctor on Call and European Brain Center take a silly approach to illustrating a phone with a stethoscope cord and a thought-bubble-brain.
Logos that inspire wellness
Lastly we’ll look at another style of medical logo which aims to calm your spirit: wellness logos. This style of logo design attracts those seeking peace and balance in their lives. In that respect, we often see representations of symmetry, and what better way to show symmetry than with flowers and plants? Kindara, Radiant Wellness and Czech Medical Herbs each portray plants and symmetry in their own subtle way. It’s also important to observe the color palettes at play. Lightly saturated earth, sky and water tones feel light hearted and peaceful, so it’s no surprise we see those colors weaving through several of the examples above. Not all wellness style logos are “quiet” however, and we mustn’t forget about strength. The Vita logo is bold and minimal in it’s line work and pink color choice. These factors add up to a logo that feels simple and balanced – exactly the qualities seekers of peace are looking for.
Now that you know the basics of doctor logo design, you should feel confident to step into your new medical practice with a logo that stays on the pulse of your target demographic. From smooth modern logos, to sharp tech logos, playful cute logos or a balanced wellness logos, we have you covered.
