Agoura Logo Design

Virtually every new Agoura business realizes that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the vital role their company logo can play in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo design works far better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long term influence on the prosperity of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Agoura businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 personal, and they are suitable for the company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Agoura coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were launching in an old part of the area and hoped to cast a retro vibe without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs via designing a trademark concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria developed for Agoura medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that works with the clinical assessment of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I recollect where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and even more memorable.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a household fun facility in Agoura.

Cool Springz | 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 norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually resonate 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - made for Agoura travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead communicate emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Agoura logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but 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 customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really loved the design and were able to persuade 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 choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo design comprehend how important a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of obstacles, however the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Agoura publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most essential part of a published book given that it is usually the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems that in many occurrences one of the aspects consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a spirit of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 Agoura logo design utilized for advertising and marketing and a label design for Vintage Situation features an old font style design.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Agoura, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs considering that it seems that each and every dental professional includes 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 careers when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

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

I really enjoy doing dentist logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific field of the field 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 subsequently I created a design that does not 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters surprised in elevation to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images 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 understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny 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 illustrate specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that carried an atmosphere of tranquility and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious path of designing merely a stylized orchid but instead crafted a company logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is usually the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the focus on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software and hardware.

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

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to market their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Agoura business logo dsign using an illustration that seizes the interest of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors.
