Oxnard, California Logo Design

Every new Oxnard business person understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners entirely grasp the crucial role their organization’s logo will make in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo works better than another. A business logo has a critical and long term influence on the viability of a business, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Oxnard, California companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Oxnard, California coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an old section of town and really wanted to project a vintage feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria made for Oxnard, California clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the clinical examination of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a family fun facility in Oxnard, California.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really reflect an atmosphere 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - developed for Oxnard, California traveling 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather project emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The idea 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 almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using 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 often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo design by utilizing the positive space in the design to say 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  Oxnard logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Oxnard logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral point of views on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really liked 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 choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their business logo recognize how essential a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s portion of difficulties, however the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Oxnard, California, design consist of an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects considering that it appears that each and every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

I really love doing dental care logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided 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 really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize specifically how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo which projected a spirit of tranquility and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious route of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the importance on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection between the software and computer 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 offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

Luckily, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the first go.

Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked closely with the proprietor to produce a logo which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
