Silver Lake Logo Design

Each and every new Silver Lake company realizes that they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners entirely grasp the vital role their organization logo can take in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo performs far better than another. A logo design has an instant and long term effect on the success of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Silver Lake businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t demand contemplation, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any sort 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Silver Lake coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an old section of the city and hoped to visualize a nostalgic tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by means of designing a logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also germs created for Silver Lake clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that works with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, however 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog made for a household enjoyable facility in Silver Lake.

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 jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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 better enthusiastic high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Silver Lake traveling digital 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they often share 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 tried to do something very similar to this logo design 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Silver Lake logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Silver Lake logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the customer 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 character A however my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to share it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really liked the concept and were able to persuade 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 preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design understand how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s share of obstacles, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Silver Lake book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever get to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with the bars modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems that in many cases one of the traits folks tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a feeling of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Silver Lake logo layout made use of for marketing and a tag design for Vintage Instance features an archaic typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Silver Lake, layout consist of an arc with lines converging through it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that each and every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t have a solitary 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 customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters staggered 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 that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that communicated a sense of simplicity and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious course of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a company logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is generally the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the attention on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

Logo layout for a software program programmer the layout functions and legendary element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive management. The kernel connects 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 program and hardware.

The business 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 spell out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions 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 spot to market their used products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Silver Lake business logo dsign with an image which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

I have crafted dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked directly with the proprietor to design a business logo which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
