Woodland, California Logo Design

Every new Woodland business understands that they require a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly understand the pivotal role their logo design can take in their financial success, or why one business logo works better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the prosperity of a company, select the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Woodland, California coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an older section of the community and hoped to cast a nostalgic vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by means of designing a company logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs developed for Woodland, California clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory examination of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates 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 brand that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and even more memorable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog made for a family members fun facility in Woodland, California.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - developed for Woodland, California travel 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they frequently share 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 frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something similar to this logo by making use of 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Woodland logo but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Woodland logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really 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 letter A but my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral point of views on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really liked 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design comprehend how important a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of challenges, however the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Woodland, California book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, but it really is the most essential part of a published book given that it is ordinarily the first thing a person views in the bookstore.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems that in many instances 1 of the traits consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a feeling of air travel and it was certainly a winner.

 Woodland logo design utilized for advertising and marketing and also a label style for Vintage Case includes an old font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Woodland, California, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that every single dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that does not 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 design over to the client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities staggered in height to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to summarize exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style developed for a hair design workshop featuring 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 carried an atmosphere of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious route of crafting merely a stylized orchid but instead created a company logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is in most cases the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the focus on the perception 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 connection between the software and hardware.

The logo 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 explain anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

I created their Woodland logo design dsign using an image that pulls in the interest of traffic and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors.

Fortunately, in this particular instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first shot.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a business logo that 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 sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
