South El Monte Logo Design

Virtually every new South El Monte company realizes that they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly recognize the pivotal role their logo design will perform in their success, or exactly why one logo performs better than another. A logo design has an immediate and lasting impact on the growth of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help South El Monte companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require contemplation, they can be realized in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 personal, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a South El Monte coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an old part of town and really wanted to cast an old-fashioned vibe without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by creating a trademark design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and germs developed for South El Monte clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 brand that makes it more captivating, more interest grabbing and more memorable.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable facility in South El Monte.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the opportunity 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 couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a more lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. 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 design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - developed for South El Monte 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead project emotional journeys through the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of most professional 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 much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something very similar 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 hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  South El Monte logo but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 South El Monte logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased assessments on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they adored 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo recognize how important a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, however the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, yet it is the most critical part of a printed book given that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person views in the book store. Regarding a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

Air LA logo made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it seems that in many occurrences 1 of the aspects people usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in South El Monte, style include an arc with lines converging with it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects considering that it appears that virtually every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo 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 profession.

I actually love doing dentist 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 stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to describe exactly how individuals should 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 understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout created for a hair design workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that communicated a spirit of relaxation and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious route of crafting simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is oftentimes the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the importance on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and disk management. The kernel attaches the computer 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 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 identify anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism behind a business logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite.
