Maywood Logo Design

Virtually every new Maywood business understands that they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs fully understand the vital role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one business logo works more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and sustaining effect on the financial success of a business, pick 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 an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Maywood businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  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 enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an older part of the city and wanted to project a vintage vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks via designing a company logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs made for Maywood clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that analyzes the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical examination of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping green frog designed for a household fun facility in Maywood.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 norm of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy impression.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Maywood traveling professional 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 believe it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories through their photography.

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

 Maywood logo style with a seagull made use of 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 genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly 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, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral judgements on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo recognize how important a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo job possesses it’s portion of hurdles, but the largest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most essential part of a published book considering that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems like that in many cases one of the items people tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was certainly a success.

 Maywood logo style made use of for advertising and marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Case features an antiquated font style.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Maywood, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

I actually love doing dental care logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area 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 subsequently I created a concept that does not have a single 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 designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in height to stand for 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 illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo which related a feeling of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious course of making merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is generally the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

The kernel connects 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 program and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the substance supporting a logo is equally as important as how it serves the business it represents.

A logo design featuring an angler 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 like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Maywood logo dsign with an image which garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the owner to develop a business logo that worked very 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 neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
