Produce a logo for Powell River Makerspace that screams high-tech but feels at home within a historic mill-town.
Requirements: Can be used in a variety of scenarios from signage to t-shirts as well as laser etched onto projects.


A badge style emblem was chosen for the logo as it’s nostalgic feel helps to reinforce the history of innovation in Powell River. In the future new badges can be created for recognition of achievement in the various courses Makerspace offers.


The logo’s circuits and gears represent the technology and innovation that’s generated from the Makerspace movement. These icons are silhouetted within the saw blade, which represents the history of industry in Powell River.

Tech in the Trees

Powell River Makerspace approached Leaven Agency to create a logo and branding platform for it’s new organization. Working closely with the founder of Powell River Makerspace, Leaven presented a number of possible solutions.

The final design format allows for expansion of additional logos/badges for the various departments of the workshop. These logos will be utilized in signage and instructional training information packages.
