Dublin Logo Design

Every new Dublin business knows they require a logo, however few entrepreneurs thoroughly grasp the vital role their organization logo can perform in their becoming successful, or why one logo design works better than another. A business logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Dublin businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand contemplation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Dublin coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an older part of the community and really wanted to cast a nostalgic vibe without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both tasks via designing a company logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and germs developed for Dublin medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

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

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 usual of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really resonate 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - developed for Dublin traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design by using the positive space in the design to voice 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  Dublin logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Dublin logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased assessments on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really liked 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 alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo recognize how crucial a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Dublin publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most necessary part of a published book considering that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many instances one of the traits people tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Dublin logo layout used for advertising and marketing as well as a tag layout for Vintage Case features an antiquated typeface style.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Dublin, design include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs because it seems that virtually every dental professional 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 fields when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters startled in height to stand for a family with in the design.

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 depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes 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 corny about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design developed for a hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo which carried a feeling of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Logo design for a software application developer the style functions and also legendary element of a bridge to the left of the name.

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 control, and drive operations. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Dublin logo design dsign utilizing a graphic that grabs the interest of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

The MQ farms logo idea wasn’t really created for an Dublin area farm it was in reality developed for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of several that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Logo design made for using an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is reminiscent of a famous sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops 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 directly with the business owner to develop a logo design that worked very 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 signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
