Lompoc Logo Design

Virtually every new Lompoc organization understands that they need a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly are aware of the key role their logo can perform in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo functions far better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining influence on the prosperity of a business, pick 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 an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Lompoc companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any 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 stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an older section of town and wanted to project a nostalgic feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by designing a company logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria created for Lompoc clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the only instance I recollect in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, but it does it in a fashion 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 attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping green frog designed for a household enjoyable center in Lompoc.

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 also 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 doctors, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more dynamic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Lompoc traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead project emotional journeys through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they frequently share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo design by employing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lompoc logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lompoc logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his aversion for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really 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 incorporate 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 went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s portion of hurdles, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for Lompoc publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a printed book given that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the bookstore. With respect to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

Air LA logo made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it seems like that in many instances 1 of the aspects consumers usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a spirit of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Lompoc, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that every single dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have 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 done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept 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 concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which carried an atmosphere of tranquility and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious route of designing simply a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Logo layout for a software application developer the layout functions and legendary element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions 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 explain anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Lompoc logo design dsign along with a graphic that grabs the attention of traffic and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

The MQ farms emblem idea wasn’t really developed for an Lompoc regional farm it was really created for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of many which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bakeries 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 owner to develop a logo that worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
