Ansonia Logo Design

Virtually every new Ansonia venture understands that they require a logo, yet few new business owners entirely realize the pivotal role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and long term effect on the success of a business, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Ansonia companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require consideration, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  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 organization they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Ansonia 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 the area and really wanted to project a retro vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by designing a company logo design that incorporates 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 layout with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria developed for Ansonia medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the root causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine which works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I remember in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific 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 makes it more interesting, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a household enjoyable facility in Ansonia.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 types of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features 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 location to go and spring does not really reflect 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy impression.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Ansonia traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead project emotional experiences through the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo design by making use of 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Ansonia 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.

 Ansonia logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the client 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 letter A however the client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get honest assessments on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they adored 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo understand how crucial a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo job possesses it’s portion of challenges, however the biggest 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 providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline 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 affording a sense of air travel and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Ansonia logo style made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Case includes an old-fashioned font style design.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Ansonia, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that virtually every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

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

I really enjoy doing dentist business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters startled in elevation to represent a family unit with in the design.

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 illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy 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 understated 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 logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout created for a hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which communicated an atmosphere of calmness and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of making just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is usually the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the importance on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell off their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Ansonia logo design dsign with an image that seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
