Bell Gardens, California Logo Design

Every new Bell Gardens organization understands that they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the crucial role their company logo can make in their financial success, or the reason that one logo functions better than another. A business logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the growth of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of a business.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bicycle created for a Bell Gardens, California coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an older section of the city and wanted to visualize a nostalgic feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by means of creating a custom 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.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs created for Bell Gardens, California clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which works with the clinical examination of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, yet it does it in a way that incorporates 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 enhancer to the name that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable facility in Bell Gardens, California.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and legal professionals 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 features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really reflect 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - made for Bell Gardens, California travel digital 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 believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they often convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with mere 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Bell Gardens logo but also to show the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bell Gardens logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but the client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his aversion for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial opinions on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really liked 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 insert 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 design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their business logo understand how essential a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of hurdles, however the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most critical part of a published book considering that it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the book shop. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it seems that in many occurrences one of the aspects people often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a good sense of air travel and it was certainly a success.

 Bell Gardens logo layout used for advertising and marketing as well as a tag style for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font style.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Bell Gardens, California, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 care industry.

I actually enjoy doing dentist logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of the field 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 does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to describe how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style created for a hair layout studio including a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design which carried a spirit of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of crafting just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is in most cases the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the emphasis on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk operations. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo 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 spell out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Bell Gardens logo design dsign with an illustration that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

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

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the proprietor to develop a logo which 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 lighted signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
