Granite Bay Logo Design

Every new Granite Bay company realizes that they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners entirely comprehend the vital role their logo can take in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo functions far better than another. A business logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the success of a business, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Granite Bay businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the organization they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be ageless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Granite Bay coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an old part of the community and wished to cast a vintage atmosphere without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by means of designing a business logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria created for Granite Bay medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that works with the clinical assessment of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more captivating, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog created for a household enjoyable center in Granite Bay.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a more lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they utilized for marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Granite Bay travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo by making use of 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Granite Bay logo but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Granite Bay logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to share it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral point of views on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really loved 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of hurdles, however the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Granite Bay, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects because it seems that every single dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless 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 dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design 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 design. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very 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 business or institution wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo design developed for a hair design workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design which projected an atmosphere of calmness and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is generally the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the importance on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

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

I designed their Granite Bay logo dsign along with an illustration which seizes the interest of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors.
