West Carson Logo Design

Virtually every new West Carson organization realizes that they need a logo, but few new business owners entirely grasp the essential role their logo design will play in their becoming successful, or why one logo functions far better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long term impact on the growth of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help West Carson companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require deliberation, they can be realized in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and just as emotive at any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a West Carson coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were opening in an old section of the city and really wanted to project an old-fashioned feel without coming across as boring or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by designing a logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria developed for West Carson clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that works with the clinical examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I remember in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Usually I try 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 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 name that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo style with a leaping green frog designed for a family fun center in West Carson.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy impression.

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

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for West Carson traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo design by making use of 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  West Carson logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 West Carson logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really 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 form as a stroke in the character A but my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest judgements on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they adored the concept and were able to persuade 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo realize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo job has it’s portion of challenges, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for West Carson book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, but it really is the most critical part of a printed book due to the fact that it is usually the first thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will 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 vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the traits consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a good sense of flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 West Carson logo style made use of for advertising and marketing and a label layout for Vintage Case includes an old font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, which looked to be antique cases. For this business logo design I sought to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in West Carson, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it seems that virtually every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company 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 profession.

I really enjoy doing dental logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of the field 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 design 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 design. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities surprised 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 brand identity design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly literal about 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 hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo that conveyed an atmosphere of calmness and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of making simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo design that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image 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 orchid but alternately laid the main focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Logo layout for a software programmer the style functions and famous component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo design 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 point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

A logo design including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to market their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their West Carson business logo dsign along with a graphic that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo design wasn’t really created for an West Carson area farm it was in reality developed for an investments broker, and this particular creative logo was one of a handful of which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was actually to make a graphic that projects esteem, success, and opulence.
Logo design developed for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant manuscript font that is similar to a famous sports group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to develop a business logo which worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
