Evans, Colorado Logo Design

Each and every new Evans company understands that they require a logo, yet few new business owners entirely grasp the vital role their organization logo will play in their success, or exactly why one logo design performs far better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the success of a business, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of an organization.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Evans, Colorado companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario 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 demand contemplation, they can be realized in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort 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 stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Evans, Colorado coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an old part of the area and hoped to cast an old-fashioned feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks by designing a trademark concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Evans, Colorado medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, yet 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 name that helps make it more appealing, more focus grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a household enjoyable center in Evans, Colorado.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 usual of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege 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 incorporate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this 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 name itself to provide the logo a better dynamic 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 used for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - made for Evans, Colorado traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they frequently tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by employing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Evans logo design but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Evans logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless project 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 concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased viewpoints on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really loved 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 … in the end 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 given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed 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, style for Evans, Colorado publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most important part of a published book considering that it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the book store. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many instances one of the aspects people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Evans logo style made use of for marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Situation features an antiquated font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Evans, Colorado, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects because it seems that almost every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities staggered in elevation to stand for 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 logo that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be very literal about 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 wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo which carried a sense of simplicity and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of making merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is more often than not the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the importance on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

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

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to market their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Evans business logo dsign utilizing an image which pulls in the interest of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors.

Good in that it gives a designer the freedom to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the first shot.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the proprietor to develop a business logo which 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 illuminated signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
