Louisville, Colorado Logo Design

Virtually every new Louisville organization realizes that they need a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the pivotal role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design works more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term effect on the prosperity of a company, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of an organization.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Louisville, Colorado companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Louisville, Colorado coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an old section of the area and wished to project an old-fashioned atmosphere without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by means of developing a trademark design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs designed for Louisville, Colorado clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine that works with the laboratory assessment of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, but it does it in a way 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a family enjoyable center in Louisville, Colorado.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool 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 usual of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not 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 more dynamic high energy impression.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - created for Louisville, Colorado travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they often convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo by using the positive space in the design to voice 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Louisville logo but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Louisville logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client 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 liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased assessments on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored the design and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to include 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.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo design recognize how important a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of challenges, but the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many occurrences one of the traits folks 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 based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to confering a sense of flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Louisville, Colorado, style include an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects because it seems that every single dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 industry.

I really really love doing dental business logos 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 course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that projected an atmosphere of relaxation and class for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious path of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a business logo that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is in most cases the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the importance on the emotion that they wanted to project to their clients.

The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection in between the software and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.
