Valinda Logo Design

Virtually every new Valinda business knows they need a logo, but few new business owners fully understand the essential role their company logo can take in their becoming successful, or why one business logo works far better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the growth of a business, go with the right one and it can 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 company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Valinda businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type 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 stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Valinda coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually launching in an older section of the town and really wanted to cast an old-fashioned feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled the two tasks by designing a custom logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria made for Valinda medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but it does it in a way that incorporates 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 intriguing, more attention grabbing and more memorable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Valinda.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 norm of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Valinda travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys 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 initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they often tell whole stories through 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 conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo by making use of 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Valinda logo but also to illustrate the depth of her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Valinda logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however 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 customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased opinions on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they loved the design 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 proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their business logo understand how crucial a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design job has it’s share of obstacles, however the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

Air LA | Logo Design

The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that each and every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters staggered 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 design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly 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 understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair style workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that related a feeling of relaxation and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious route of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo design which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is frequently the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to market their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Valinda business logo dsign utilizing a graphic that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors.
