Lakewood Logo Design

Every new Lakewood company knows they require a logo, however few entrepreneurs fully realize the pivotal role their company logo will play in their success, or the reason that one business logo functions far better than another. A logo has an instant and lasting effect on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Lakewood companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require consideration, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of device, in print, on 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 stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Lakewood coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an older section of the town and wished to project a vintage tone without coming across as boring or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by designing a company logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide and bacteria developed for Lakewood clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the triggers 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 reasons.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet it does it in a way that incorporates 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 makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that 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 clear choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an atmosphere 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, 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 atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild 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 made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - developed for Lakewood travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead reveal emotional journeys through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lakewood logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lakewood logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I seriously 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 form as a stroke in the character A but the client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral judgements on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared 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 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 design.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo design comprehend how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s portion of obstacles, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Lakewood book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most vital part of a printed book because it is often the first thing a person views in the bookstore. With respect to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems like that in many occurrences one of the traits folks tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of flight and it was surely a success.

 Lakewood logo design utilized for advertising and a tag design for Vintage Situation includes an old font style design.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Lakewood, style include an arc with lines converging via it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects considering that it seems that virtually every dentist 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 fields when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

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

I really love doing dentist logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd 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 suggested in the concept. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

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 residents in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design that related a spirit of simplicity and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious path of making simply a stylized orchid but rather created a logo design which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is usually the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the attention on the perception that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel attaches the computer 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 hardware.

The logo design 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 explain anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo is equally as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a place to market their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Lakewood logo dsign using an image that grabs the attention of traffic and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.
