Bridgeport, Connecticut Logo Design

Nearly every new Bridgeport organization realizes that they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs entirely recognize the pivotal role their logo design will take in their success, or precisely why one logo design performs more effectively than another. A business logo has an immediate and long term influence on the prosperity of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an older section the city and wished to project a vintage vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy.

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

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which works with the laboratory examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite 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 interest grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a family fun facility in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, in the end 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 integrated him in to everything they used for marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - created for Bridgeport, Connecticut traveling digital 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes 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 frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Bridgeport logo but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bridgeport logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked the design and were able to persuade 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo recognize how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo project has it’s share of difficulties, however the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most important part of a published book due to the fact that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book shop.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems that in many occurrences one of the things folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Bridgeport, Connecticut, layout include an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it seems that every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

I really love doing dental logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a design that does not have a single 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 apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters surprised in elevation to represent a family 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 custom logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize specifically how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to consider 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 won’t have the chance to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which communicated a feeling of contentment and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design that did not go the obvious path of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is oftentimes the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the focus on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection between the software program and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the owner of the business and in many cases the substance supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a spot to sell off their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Bridgeport logo dsign using a graphic that seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the first go.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a logo design that worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
