Centennial, Colorado Logo Design

Nearly every new Centennial business understands that they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs fully recognize the key role their logo will play in their success, or why one business logo functions far better than another. A logo has an instant and long term impact on the growth of a business, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a business.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Centennial, Colorado 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 logos do not demand contemplation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at any size.
  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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Centennial, Colorado coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually launching in an old part of town and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both tasks by means of developing a symbol concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Centennial, Colorado medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine which works with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is 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.

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a household fun facility in Centennial, Colorado.

Cool Springs | 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 types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Centennial, Colorado traveling digital 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead project emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo design by utilizing 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  Centennial logo but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Centennial logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however the client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective opinions on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they loved the design 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo understand how vital a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of difficulties, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Centennial, Colorado publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most crucial part of a published book since it is often the very first thing a person sees in the bookstore. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever have to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it looks like that in many occurrences one of the traits folks usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a sense of air travel and it was surely a victory.

 Centennial logo design used for marketing as well as a label design for Vintage Situation features an antiquated font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo created for an orthodontist in Centennial, Colorado, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that each and every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

I actually really love doing dentist logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design 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 obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found 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 wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair layout workshop including a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo which communicated a sense of ease and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious path of crafting just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a business logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is frequently the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their clients.

Logo design for a software program developer the design attributes and iconic aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the 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. But it represented something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the company it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly realized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer 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 interests, a location to sell off their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Centennial logo dsign using an illustration which captures the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.
Logo design MQ farms, this logo layout has actually an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t really developed for an Centennial, Colorado area farm it was in reality created for a commodities broker, and this logo design was one of a handful of which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The objective was to generate an identity that projects esteem, financial success, and wealth.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was completely open to what type of logo design that they would like, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to discover any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without knowing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I hit a bullseye with the first go.

Logo designed for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is evocative a famous sporting activities team logo design.

I have crafted dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment 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 believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the business owner to develop a logo that worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
