Laguna Woods Logo Design

Nearly every new Laguna Woods venture knows they need a logo, however few new business owners fully grasp the essential role their business logo can play in their financial success, or exactly why one logo works more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term impact on the success of a business, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of an organization.

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Laguna Woods coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were launching in an old part of the town and wished to cast an old-fashioned tone without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by creating a business logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs created for Laguna Woods clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more focus grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a household enjoyable facility in Laguna Woods.

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 types of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a few springs into the design 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 logo 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 name itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing. 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.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Laguna Woods travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead project emotional journeys through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often tell 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 that can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Laguna Woods logo design but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Laguna Woods logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however the client, 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”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo understand how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s share of hurdles, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Laguna Woods book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a printed book because it is usually the initial thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems that in many cases one of the traits individuals usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a good sense of flight and it was definitely a success.

 Laguna Woods logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and also a label style for Vintage Instance features an antiquated font style layout.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Laguna Woods, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it seems that every dental professional incorporates 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 fields when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 profession.

I actually love doing dental care logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently 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 implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted 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. 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 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 business or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout developed 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 needed a business logo which conveyed a spirit of serenity and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious path of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead created a company logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is in most cases the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the importance on the feeling that they wanted to project to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive operations. 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 connection between the software program and 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 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 significance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

A logo layout including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards 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 retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Laguna Woods business logo dsign using an illustration which pulls in the attention of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.
