Canada Logo Design

Every new Canada venture knows they need a logo, however few new business owners fully realize the crucial role their logo design can play in their financial success, or why one logo design works more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and long term effect on the success of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Canada companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require scrutiny, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will be legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any 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 enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Canada coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening up in an old part of the city and wished to cast a retro feel without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs via creating a custom logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs created for Canada medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design Project

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather 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 helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a family enjoyable center in Canada.

Cool Springs | Retail Branding Project

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 sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really resonate an environment 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Canada traveling professional 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional journeys through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo by using 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Canada logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Canada logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design Project

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but the client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

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

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 business logo understand how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo project has it’s allotment of difficulties, but the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Canada publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design Project

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most essential part of a printed book since it is usually the first thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books. This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design Project

Airlines come and depart however it seems like that in many cases 1 of the things consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to confering a good sense of air travel and it was certainly a winner.

 Canada logo style utilized for advertising as well as a tag design for Vintage Situation includes an archaic font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design Project

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be vintage cases. For this custom logo design I sought to come up with a logo that offered a fluid vintage feel to it and could be utilized for anything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different point in time.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Canada, layout include an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design Project

Dental logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that each and every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but 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 industry. I really really love doing dentistry logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on. Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.
William McNally logo design designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design Project

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to project. The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to summarize exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.
Logo design created for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that related a feeling of relaxation and class for their new hair studio. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious direction of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is frequently the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Logo style for a software program designer the style attributes as well as iconic component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design Project

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and disk operations. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection in 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 identify anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a logo design is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

A logo style including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to market their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Canada business logo design with a graphic that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this logo design has a field incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design

The MQ farms company logo concept wasn’t really created for an Canada regional farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this particular business logo was one of several which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to develop an identity that projects self-confidence, financial success, and wealth.

 Canada Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo layout feature for ostensibly facing arrowhead and also the arrowheads indicate that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants a designer the liberty to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without recognizing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the first shot.

Logo design designed for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is evocative a well-known sports group logo.

I have crafted loads of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked closely with the proprietor to develop a logo which worked very 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 that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
