Visitacion Valley, California Logo Design

Each and every new Visitacion Valley organization realizes that they are in need of a logo, however few new business owners fully grasp the crucial role their company logo will take in their becoming successful, or precisely why one business logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and long term impact on the viability of a business, select the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Visitacion Valley, California companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to movie screens a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Visitacion Valley, California coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an older section of the area and wished to visualize an old-fashioned atmosphere without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved both tasks via creating a symbol design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as germs designed for Visitacion Valley, California medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that works with the clinical assessment of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping green frog created for a household enjoyable facility in Visitacion Valley, 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 norm of the kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this 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 provide the logo a much more lively high energy atmosphere.

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. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Visitacion Valley, California traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo design 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Visitacion Valley logo design but also to show the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Visitacion Valley logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, but 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 character A but the client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral assessments on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo comprehend how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of hurdles, but the most significant 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 customer the identity they see for themselves.

The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Visitacion Valley, California, design consist of an arc with lines converging through it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo projects because it seems that every dental professional 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 company branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo 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 dentist logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in height 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 custom logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Most 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 very literal with regards to 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 wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed 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 makes an effort to use the logo to explain how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that projected an atmosphere of contentment and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of designing merely a stylized orchid but instead designed a business logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is more often than not the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the main focus on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

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

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

Luckily, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st try.

Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the owner to develop a business 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 neon signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
