Apple Valley Logo Design

Each and every new Apple Valley venture understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly understand the vital role their logo will play in their becoming successful, or exactly why one business logo functions far better than another. A logo has a critical and long-term impact on the success of a business, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Apple Valley businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand scrutiny, they can be realized in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually 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 unique, and they are suitable for the enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Apple Valley coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an older section of the city and really wanted to cast a nostalgic vibe without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by developing a logo concept 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.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as germs made for Apple Valley clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory examination of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very literally, however 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 helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a family fun facility in Apple Valley.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better dynamic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I designed was made 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 hill, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Apple Valley traveling 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead communicate emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo design by utilizing the positive space in the design to say 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  Apple Valley logo but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Apple Valley logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I really enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get neutral judgements on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they adored the concept 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their business logo understand how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo job has it’s portion of obstacles, however the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Apple Valley, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that almost every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 profession.

I actually love doing dentist logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design 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 concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Many 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 very 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 organization wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which related a feeling of contentment and connection for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious route of crafting simply a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is generally the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the importance on the perception that they wanted to project to their clients.

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 bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it represented something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Apple Valley business logo dsign using a graphic that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors.
