Arvada Logo Design

Every new Arvada company realizes that they are in need of a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly grasp the key role their organization logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design functions far better than another. A logo has a critical and lasting impact on the prosperity of a company, select the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Arvada businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require contemplation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at any dimension.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Arvada coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were launching in an old part of the community and wanted to visualize a vintage tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by developing 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 timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs developed for Arvada medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine that works with the laboratory examination of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents very 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 an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more focus grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a household fun facility in Arvada.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and lawyers 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 name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear 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 really resonate an environment 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 title itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for 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 just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - designed for Arvada travel 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 rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories using 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 resonance which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something very similar 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Arvada logo design but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Arvada logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however my customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get objective opinions on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really loved the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo recognize how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Arvada publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most essential part of a printed book considering that it is in most cases the primary thing a person views in the bookstore. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever have to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems that in many instances one of the things people usually tend to remember 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 while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a sense of flight and it was surely a winner.

 Arvada logo design made use of for marketing as well as a tag style for Vintage Instance features an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Arvada, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects considering that it seems that each and 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 most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dentists do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s 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 dental profession.

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

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

William McNally logo developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters startled in elevation to represent 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 logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Most 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 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 understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design produced for a hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo which related a sense of ease and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious path of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the emphasis on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The logo design 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 spell out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to sell off their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Arvada business logo dsign along with a graphic that garners the attention of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I knew 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 tranquil habitat.

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t actually created for an Arvada regional farm it was in reality created for a commodities broker, and this particular business logo was one of several that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

I have created quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the business owner to develop a logo that 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 lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
