Koreatown, California Logo Design

Each and every new Koreatown organization knows they need a logo, yet few entrepreneurs fully recognize the vital role their logo design can perform in their financial success, or why one logo functions far better than another. A logo design has a critical and long-term effect on the success of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a business.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Koreatown, California companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Koreatown, California coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an old section the city and really wanted to project a retro vibe without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks through designing a logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Koreatown, California medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that deals with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, however it does it in a way 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 even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a household enjoyable facility in Koreatown, California.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 usual of the sorts 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 only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really resonate an environment 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more lively high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Koreatown, California traveling digital 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 pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional journeys through the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often share 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 frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo design by making use of 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Koreatown logo but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Koreatown logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless design 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 the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how important a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo project has it’s share of challenges, but 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 giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, yet it is the most important part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the traits consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo 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 victory.

 Koreatown logo layout made use of for marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated typeface design.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Koreatown, California, style include an arc with lines converging through it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects because it seems that every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but 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 profession.

I actually love doing dentist business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of 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 delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in height 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 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 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 concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design which conveyed a sense of peace and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious course of crafting just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is generally the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the focus on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive management. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the 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. However it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell off their used items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Koreatown logo dsign using an illustration that seizes the attention of vehicles and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Fortunately, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first try.

I have designed loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked closely with the proprietor to create a logo design 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 lighted signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
