Oxnard Logo Design

Virtually every new Oxnard organization understands that they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners entirely understand the crucial role their business logo will take in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo functions better than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting impact on the financial success of a business, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Oxnard companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be understood in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will stay legible and just as emotive at every 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bike developed for a Oxnard coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were launching in an older part of the city and wished to visualize a nostalgic tone without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by means of developing a company logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and bacteria made for Oxnard clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the clinical examination of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, however it does it in a way 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a family enjoyable facility in Oxnard.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect 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 name itself to provide the logo a much more lively high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Oxnard travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather project emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they often share whole stories through 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 often have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo design 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Oxnard logo but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Oxnard logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment 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 character A but the client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this particular type of sea bird.

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

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo realize how crucial a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of obstacles, however the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the aspects folks usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a sense of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Oxnard logo style made use of for advertising and a label style for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface design.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Oxnard, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless 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 dental industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to represent 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 logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very 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 downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal 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 immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which carried a sense of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious path of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the focus on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection between the software program and hardware.

The logo design 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 point out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly knew the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to sell their used goods to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Oxnard logo dsign utilizing a graphic which garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
