Encino Logo Design

Nearly every new Encino business realizes that they need a logo, but few new business owners entirely realize the crucial role their organization logo will make in their becoming successful, or precisely why one business logo functions better than another. A logo design has a critical and long term influence on the prosperity of a company, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Encino businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand contemplation, they can be realized in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Encino coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening in an old section of the area and hoped to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by designing a trademark design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria developed for Encino medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, however it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 helps make it more captivating, more focus grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping green frog designed for a household enjoyable facility in Encino.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 norm of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually 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 feature a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Encino traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather project emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative 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 a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo by employing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Encino 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.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I truly relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 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 man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial viewpoints on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really loved the design and were able to persuade 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how vital a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of hurdles, however the greatest challenge is identifying 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 customer the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most necessary part of a published book since it is usually the initial thing a person views in the book shop.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems like that in many cases 1 of the aspects consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of flight and it was definitely a winner.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Encino, design include an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging logo design projects considering that it seems that each and every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I actually love doing dental care business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered 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 obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit 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 depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. Most 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 overly 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 don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed 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 explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo style created for a hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which projected an atmosphere of peace and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious path of creating simply a stylized orchid but instead created a business logo which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is more often than not the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to transmit 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 hard drive management. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts 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 situated a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the meaning behind a business logo is just as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

I created their Encino business logo dsign utilizing an illustration which seizes the attention of vehicles and sends an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
