Montebello, California Logo Design

Each and every new Montebello company understands that they require a logo, however few new business owners entirely comprehend the pivotal role their business logo will make in their becoming successful, or exactly why one business logo works far better than another. A logo has a critical and sustaining impact on the financial success of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a company.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Montebello, California coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an older section of the city and hoped to project a retro atmosphere without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks by means of designing a company logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Montebello, California medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the laboratory examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, yet it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more captivating, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a household enjoyable center in Montebello, California.

Cool Springs | 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 types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company has 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 location to go and spring doesn’t really 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. 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 exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Montebello, California traveling 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 profession due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but rather convey emotional journeys by means of the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire 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 often have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Montebello logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the client 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 but my customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced judgements on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Montebello, California publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most critical part of a published book considering that it is often the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever get to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it looks like that in many instances 1 of the things people tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to confering a sense of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Montebello logo layout utilized for advertising and marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Instance includes an old-fashioned typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Montebello, California, design include an arc with lines converging with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos 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 integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to represent a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the residents 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 far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo which related an atmosphere of peace and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead created a company logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is more often than not the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the attention on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Logo design for a software program programmer the style features and also famous aspect 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 management, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the meaning behind a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

I created their Montebello logo dsign along with an image that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Fortunately, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked directly with the proprietor to design a business logo that worked extremely 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 neon sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
