Every new Glen Avon business person understands that they need a logo, yet few new business owners fully recognize the pivotal role their logo design can make in their success, or precisely why one logo design performs far better than another. A business logo has an immediate and sustaining influence on the viability of a company, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a company.

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Glen Avon, California coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an old part of the community and really wanted to project a vintage vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks by designing a custom logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria made for Glen Avon, California clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves very 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a family fun center in Glen Avon, California.

Cool Springz | 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 usual of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and attorneys 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 name of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really 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 more lively 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 utilized for advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Glen Avon, California traveling professional 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 believe it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something the same 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 hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Glen Avon 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.

 Glen Avon logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I really take pleasure in 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 idea of using the seagull form 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 really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral point of views on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how crucial a logo is for their company so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo design job has it’s portion of difficulties, however the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing 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, but it really is the most vital part of a printed book considering that it is in most cases the very first thing a person sees in the book store. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever get to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it seems that in many cases 1 of the aspects people usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Glen Avon, California, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it seems that every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I really enjoy doing dentist logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities staggered in elevation 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 that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to explain specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that carried a sense of relaxation and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is generally the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

The kernel connects 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 computer hardware.

The logo design 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 about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a logo design is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell off their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Glen Avon business logo dsign utilizing a graphic which garners the attention of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Luckily, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the very first go.

Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the proprietor to create a business logo which worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
