La Palma Logo Design

Virtually every new La Palma company realizes that they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners entirely comprehend the pivotal role their logo can make in their success, or exactly why one logo design performs far better than another. A company logo has a critical and long term influence on the success of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help La Palma companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require deliberation, they can be understood in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 unique, and they are suitable for the organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a La Palma coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening up in an old part of the town and really wanted to project a vintage feel without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks via creating a business logo design that contains 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 layout with a microscope slide and also germs designed for La Palma medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine that deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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 within a logo design.

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members fun center in La Palma.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for La Palma travel professional 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 think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather project emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by employing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  La Palma 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.

 La Palma logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really enjoy 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 the client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo comprehend how important a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s share of challenges, but the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for La Palma publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, but it really is the most necessary part of a printed book since it is in most cases the primary thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever have to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

Air LA logo design developed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it seems like that in many cases 1 of the traits people often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a good sense of air travel and it was surely a winner.

 La Palma logo style used for marketing as well as a tag layout for Vintage Situation features an antiquated typeface style.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in La Palma, style include an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that virtually every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided 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 obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in height to stand for a family 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 custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate specifically how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to ponder 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 chance to be understood.

Logo design created for a hair design studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo that carried a feeling of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious route of creating just a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is usually the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

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 managing. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge in between the software and hardware.

The business logo 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 point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo design is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

A logo design featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their La Palma business logo dsign along with a graphic which pulls in the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

I have designed loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to create a business logo that worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked 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.
