Cypress, California Logo Design

Each and every new Cypress company knows they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs fully understand the crucial role their business logo will take in their becoming successful, or the reason that one logo design functions better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long term impact on the viability of a business, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Cypress, California businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Cypress, California coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening in an older section of the community and hoped to visualize a vintage atmosphere without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by creating a trademark design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and bacteria created for Cypress, California clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that works with the laboratory assessment of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable facility in Cypress, California.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 usual of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, 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 full name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 name itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for promotion 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 fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Cypress, California travel professional 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 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 attempted to do something similar to this logo design 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Cypress logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Cypress logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I really enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but 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 letter A but my customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased judgements on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really loved the design and were able to reason with 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to create their business logo realize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of challenges, but the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Cypress, California book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, but it really is the most vital part of a printed book considering that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person views in the book store. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will ever have to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it looks like that in many occurrences one of the items consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a good sense of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it appears that virtually every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely 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 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 care profession.

I really enjoy doing dental care logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too 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 organization wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo style produced for a hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo that conveyed a feeling of peace and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design that did not go the obvious course of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the importance on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive management. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection in between the software and computer hardware.

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

Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to market their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Cypress logo dsign using an image that pulls in the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew 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 peaceful habitat.

Luckily, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo made for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is similar to a popular sports group logo.

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked closely with the owner to create a logo design which worked extremely well and did a great 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.
