Mead Valley Logo Design

Virtually every new Mead Valley company knows they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the vital role their business logo can take in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design works better than another. A logo has a critical and long-term effect on the prosperity of a business, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Mead Valley businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Mead Valley coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an old section of the area and wanted to visualize a nostalgic vibe without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by designing a symbol concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs created for Mead Valley clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare which deals with the clinical examination of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable center in Mead Valley.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege 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 incorporate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an environment 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - made for Mead Valley traveling 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 believe it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo 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  Mead Valley logo design but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I really 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 but my customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they really loved the concept and were able to reason with 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 choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo recognize how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems that in many instances 1 of the things folks tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a good sense of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Mead Valley, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that every single dental professional features 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 careers when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company 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 business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout created for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that projected a feeling of serenity and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is generally the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk managing. 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 connection between the software 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 point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it represents.

Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to sell their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Mead Valley logo design dsign along with a graphic that garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
