Arcadia, California Logo Design

Each and every new Arcadia business understands that they need a logo, yet few new business owners fully understand the crucial role their logo will make in their success, or precisely why one logo design works better than another. A logo design has an immediate and lasting effect on the growth of a company, select the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization.

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Arcadia, California coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were opening up in an old section of the area and wished to project an old-fashioned feel without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks by means of designing a trademark concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is an enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Arcadia, California clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents very 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 brand that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a household fun center in Arcadia, California.

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 usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually reflect an atmosphere 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Arcadia, California traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead project emotional experiences through the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they frequently share whole 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 resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Arcadia logo but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get honest viewpoints on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they adored the concept 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how crucial a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of challenges, but the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Arcadia, California book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, but it really is the most vital part of a printed book since it is ordinarily the first thing a person sees in the book store. Regarding a publisher, it’s the opportunity that they will ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many cases 1 of the items people usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a feeling of air travel and it was surely a winner.

 Arcadia logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag design for Vintage Case includes an old-fashioned font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Arcadia, California, layout include an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it appears that virtually every 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 careers when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless 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 industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept that doesn’t 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 customer the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family 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 logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Many 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair layout workshop including a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo which conveyed a feeling of simplicity and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which did not go the obvious path of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a company logo which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is generally the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the main focus on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel connects the computer 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 computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located 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. But it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to market their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Arcadia logo design dsign utilizing a graphic which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo made for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is similar to a famous sporting activities group logo design.

I have designed dozens of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, 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 great undertaking in which I worked directly with the business owner to produce a logo which worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
