North Hollywood Logo Design

Virtually every new North Hollywood organization realizes that they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs thoroughly recognize the crucial role their logo design can play in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo design functions far better than another. A logo has an instant and long-term influence on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help North Hollywood companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of 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 company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a North Hollywood coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually launching in an old part of the area and wished to project a retro vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both jobs by means of designing a symbol design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and germs developed for North Hollywood medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which works with the clinical assessment of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Generally 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 way 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a household enjoyable facility in North Hollywood.

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 norm of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and legal professionals 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 full name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 better lively high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - created for North Hollywood traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo by utilizing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  North Hollywood logo but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 North Hollywood logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I really 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 idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get honest assessments on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their business logo realize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s share of challenges, but the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates 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.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most necessary part of a printed book because it is in most cases the initial thing a person sees in the book shop.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it looks like that in many occurrences one of the items consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a spirit of flight and it was certainly a success.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in North Hollywood, style include an arc with lines converging with it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it appears that every single dental professional incorporates 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 professions when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 dental care business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters startled in elevation to represent a family with in the style.

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 love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal with regards 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 institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to summarize exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design produced for a hair style 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 company logo that carried an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather created a company logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is generally the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

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 in between the software program and hardware.

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

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell off their used items to other sports enthusiasts. I created their North Hollywood business logo dsign with an image which grabs the attention of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
