Rancho Cucamonga Logo Design

Each and every new Rancho Cucamonga organization realizes that they require a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly grasp the pivotal role their company logo can make in their success, or precisely why one logo works more effectively than another. A logo has an instant and long-term effect on the growth of a business, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Rancho Cucamonga companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand deliberation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Rancho Cucamonga coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an older section of the city and hoped to cast a nostalgic vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by designing a logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and also germs created for Rancho Cucamonga clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, yet it does it in a way 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more memorable.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a household fun center in Rancho Cucamonga.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features 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 really resonate 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy feeling.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Rancho Cucamonga traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather convey emotional journeys through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire 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 communicated with mere words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo design by employing the positive space in the design to voice 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  Rancho Cucamonga logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Rancho Cucamonga logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but 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 however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his contempt for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family 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 include every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how important a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, however the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Rancho Cucamonga book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, but it really is the most important part of a published book given that it is ordinarily the first thing a person views in the bookstore. Concerning a publisher, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA logo developed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it looks like that in many cases one of the items folks tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of air travel and it was surely a winner.

 Rancho Cucamonga logo design used for marketing and a tag design for Vintage Instance includes an archaic font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Rancho Cucamonga, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that almost every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design but 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 actually love doing dentistry business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a layout 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 design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective 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 describes itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo which projected a feeling of simplicity and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather created a logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the emphasis on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive operations. 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 business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the meaning behind a logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to market their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Rancho Cucamonga business logo dsign along with an image which garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.
Logo design MQ farms, this logo design has an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo design wasn’t really produced for an Rancho Cucamonga area farm it was actually designed for an investments broker, and this logo design was one of multiple that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was actually to generate an identity that projected esteem, success, and wealth.
Logo created for the use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font style that is evocative a well-known sporting activities team logo.

I have created loads of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the proprietor to design a business logo which worked extremely 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 neon signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
