Alabama Logo Design

Each and every new Alabama organization understands that they are in need of a logo, however few new business owners fully grasp the vital role their logo design will take in their success, or the reason that one business logo performs better than another. A logo has a critical and sustaining influence on the success of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Alabama companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are unique, and they are suitable for the organization they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Alabama coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an older part of the city and really wanted to cast a vintage vibe without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished each of the tasks by designing a custom logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and also bacteria designed for Alabama medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design Project

Pathology is the science which analyzes the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the laboratory examination of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a family fun facility in Alabama.

Cool Springs | Retail Branding Project

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Alabama travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead project emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they often convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo by using the positive space in the design to suggest one thing and then at the same time using the negative space to expand upon what was conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Alabama logo design but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Alabama logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design Project

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but my client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced judgements on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they loved the design and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo realize how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, however the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Alabama publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design Project

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, but it really is the most crucial part of a printed book since it is often the first thing a person sees in the book store. For a publisher, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books. This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with benches changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design Project

Airlines arrive and go however it seems that in many cases 1 of the aspects individuals tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to confering a good sense of flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Alabama logo style made use of for advertising and a label layout for Vintage Case includes an old font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design Project

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be antique cases. For this logo design I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old style feel to it and could easily be utilized for every thing from a website to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Alabama, design include an arc with lines converging with it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design Project

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects considering that it seems that almost every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry. I really really love doing dentist logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on. Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.
William McNally logo design developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design Project

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to communicate. The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be understood.
Logo design developed for a hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo that projected a feeling of serenity and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious path of making just a stylized orchid but rather designed a company logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is frequently the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the emphasis on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

Logo style for a software program designer the style attributes and iconic element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design Project

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a spot to sell off their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Alabama logo design design utilizing an illustration which garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this logo design has actually an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design

The MQ farms emblem design wasn’t really designed for an Alabama area farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was really to make an identity that projected confidence, financial success, and opulence.

 Alabama Logo design for a nonprofit, Turning Point Solutions - the logo design feature for outwardly dealing with arrowhead as well as the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design that they wanted, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it provides a designer the freedom to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where exactly the target is. Fortunately, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo created for making use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is evocative a famous sports team logo design.

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked closely with the owner to create a logo design that worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
