Northport, Alabama Logo Design

Every new Northport business understands that they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs entirely understand the vital role their company logo will perform in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo works more effectively than another. A logo has an instant and long-term impact on the financial success of a business, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of an organization.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Northport, Alabama coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening up in an older part of town and hoped to project an old-fashioned tone without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks via designing a logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also germs made for Northport, Alabama clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory assessment of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the sole instance I call to mind in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more appealing, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping green frog created for a household enjoyable center in Northport, Alabama.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for Northport, Alabama travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead project emotional experiences by means of the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo design by employing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Northport logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Northport logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get impartial opinions on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo understand how important a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Northport, Alabama book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most important part of a printed book because it is often the primary thing a person views in the bookstore. Concerning a publisher, it’s the opportunity they will likely ever get to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

Air LA logo designed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems like that in many instances 1 of the traits folks tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Northport logo design utilized for advertising as well as a label layout for Vintage Situation features an archaic font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo created for an orthodontist in Northport, Alabama, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it appears that each and every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

I really really love doing dental logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that does not have a single 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in elevation to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo which related a feeling of contentment and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious direction of creating merely a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is frequently the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel links the system 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 logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a logo design is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a spot to market their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Northport business logo dsign using an image which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors.

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what kind of logo design that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the very first shot.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to design a business logo which worked very 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 neon signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
