Connecticut Logo Design

Every new Connecticut organization knows they need a logo, but few entrepreneurs entirely grasp the crucial role their organization logo can take in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo design functions better than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting effect on the success of a company, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of a company.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Connecticut businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require consideration, they can be realized in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will be legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Connecticut coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an old part of the city and wanted to project an old-fashioned tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by designing a symbol concept 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 design with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Connecticut clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design Project

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is really the only instance I recall where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a family enjoyable center in Connecticut.

Cool Springs | Retail Branding Project

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 usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Connecticut traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire 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 resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Connecticut 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.

 Connecticut logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design Project

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however the client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really liked 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo understand how important a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of obstacles, however the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Connecticut book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design Project

The book spine is a thin segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most critical part of a published book due to the fact that it is usually the first thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books. This 3 color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design Project

Airlines come and depart yet it looks like that in many instances 1 of the things consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to confering a good sense of flight and it was certainly a success.

 Connecticut logo layout utilized for marketing and also a label style for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design Project

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which seemed to be antique cases. For this custom logo concept I strove to come up with a logo that had a fluid vintage feel to it and could be used for every thing from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Connecticut, layout include an arc with lines converging through it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design Project

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it seems that every single dentist 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 small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs 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 including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 dentistry profession. I actually really love doing dentistry logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on. Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that doesn’t 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.
William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design Project

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people 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 far too 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 don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to relate. The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.
Logo layout produced for a hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo which conveyed a sense of contentment and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious course of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a company logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is oftentimes the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design Project

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive operations. The kernel unites the system 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 computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the business 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 offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to market their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Connecticut business logo design along with an illustration that garners the attention of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this logo layout has actually a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design

The MQ farms brand design wasn’t actually developed for an Connecticut area farm it was actually devised for an investments broker, and this particular company logo was one of several that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Good in that it gives a designer the opportunity to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without knowing where the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st shot.

I have crafted loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked closely with the owner to produce a business logo which worked very well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
