Lake Havasu City, Arizona Logo Design

Every new Lake Havasu City organization realizes that they require a logo, but few new business owners entirely understand the pivotal role their logo design can perform in their becoming successful, or the reason that one logo design performs far better than another. A logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the prosperity of a company, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of a company.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Lake Havasu City, Arizona businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require consideration, they can be understood in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any sort of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be ageless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Lake Havasu City, Arizona coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an older part of town and wished to cast a vintage feel without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by means of creating a company logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria created for Lake Havasu City, Arizona clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the only instance I recall in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, yet it does it in a fashion that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping green frog developed for a family enjoyable facility in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

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

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually reflect an environment 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Lake Havasu City, Arizona 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories through 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 conveyed with just words. I tried to do something similar to this logo design by employing the positive space in the design to voice 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lake Havasu City logo design but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lake Havasu City logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in 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 form as a stroke in the letter A however the client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced judgements on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really 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 include 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.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of hurdles, but the greatest obstacle is identifying 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 customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for Lake Havasu City, Arizona book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most crucial part of a published book since it is ordinarily the initial thing a person views in the book shop. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it looks like that in many instances 1 of the things people tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to confering a sense of air travel and it was certainly a winner.

 Lake Havasu City logo layout made use of for marketing and also a label design for Vintage Case includes an old-fashioned typeface style.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it appears that every single dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

I really really love doing dentist business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities staggered in elevation to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed 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 makes an effort to use the logo design to describe exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo style developed for a hair design workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo which projected a spirit of tranquility and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious course of designing simply a stylized orchid but rather created a logo that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is usually the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the importance on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The logo design 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 spell out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the business and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first go.

Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to produce a logo that worked extremely well and did a great 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 legible from over a block away.
