Arvin Logo Design

Nearly every new Arvin organization understands that they are in need of a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly recognize the pivotal role their logo can make in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo works far better than another. A company logo has a critical and lasting influence on the financial success of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Arvin businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any type 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Arvin coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an older part of the city and really wanted to project a retro tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by developing a logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Arvin clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 interesting, more focus grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a household fun facility in Arvin.

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

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really resonate 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy impression.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Arvin traveling 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo by utilizing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Arvin logo but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design 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 letter A however my client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced judgements on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they loved the concept and were able to persuade 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 preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo understand how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of challenges, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates 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.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects consumers usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of flight and it was surely a winner.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Arvin, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

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

I actually love doing dentist business logos 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 provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family with in the layout.

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 people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that explains itself will never have the chance to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo that related a spirit of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is usually the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and disk operations. 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 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 located a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the significance behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to market their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Arvin logo dsign with a graphic that pulls in the interest of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
