The tortoise, or "tortuga" in Spanish, is recognized around the world for its long lifespan. Tortuga Creative’s mission, similarly, is to design and create media that leaves long-lasting impressions.
The Tortuga Creative logo resembles a tortoise shell. The "shell" logo presents six outer hexagons of colors and an inner hexagon that is a pair of brackets. The colorful outer hexagons, inspired by the color wheel, symbolizes our graphic design service. The center hexagon, inspired by html tags, symbolize our web design service. Each hexagon can also be viewed as one of our six services: graphic design, web design, photography, multimedia, 3D design, and marketing; and collectively, make up Tortuga Creative.
