Gardena, California Logo Design

Nearly every new Gardena organization realizes that they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs are thoroughly aware of the vital role their logo can play in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo functions more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the financial success of a business, select the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a business.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Gardena, California companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand consideration, they can be realized in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 unique, and they are suitable for the business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Gardena, California coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an old part of the city and wanted to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks via developing a company logo concept that includes 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 designed for Gardena, California clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which works with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, but it does it in a way 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 brand that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog made for a family fun center in Gardena, California.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Gardena, California 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead project emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using 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 often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo by employing the positive space in the design to say 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Gardena logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Gardena logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless project 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get objective judgements on the worthiness 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their business logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of challenges, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most crucial part of a printed book given that it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the book shop.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it seems like that in many cases one of the things consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Gardena logo style utilized for advertising and marketing as well as a label style for Vintage Case includes an antiquated font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Gardena, California, layout include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it appears that every single dentist involves 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 marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that doesn’t 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too 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 don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo that conveyed a spirit of serenity and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious course of designing simply a stylized orchid but rather designed a company logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the attention on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection in 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 number of miles from the business 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 symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to market their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Gardena business logo dsign with an image which garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo concept wasn’t really developed for an Gardena, California regional farm it was really created for an investments broker, and this brand was one of many that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Good in that it offers a designer the opportunity to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st try.

I have created dozens of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a business logo which worked really 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 illuminated sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
