Bristol Logo Design

Every new Bristol business understands that they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly are aware of the vital role their logo design will play in their becoming successful, or precisely why one business logo works far better than another. A company logo has an immediate and long term impact on the growth of a business, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Bristol businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require deliberation, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will be legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bike developed for a Bristol coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an old section of the town and wished to cast an old-fashioned tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by means of designing a company logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria created for Bristol medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the root causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the clinical assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the only instance I recollect in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Bristol.

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 doctors, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an environment 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 name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - designed for Bristol travel digital 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 specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead project emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo design by utilizing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Bristol logo design but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bristol logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the customer 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 letter A but my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the value of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their business logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo job possesses it’s portion of challenges, however the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most important part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the first thing a person views in the book shop. With respect to a publisher, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems that in many cases 1 of the items consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Bristol logo layout utilized for marketing and a tag layout for Vintage Case includes an old typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Bristol, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects considering that it appears that each and every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. 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 overly literal about 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 business or institution wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style developed 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 wanted a logo design that carried an atmosphere of serenity and class for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious direction of making simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is more often than not the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the emphasis on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

The kernel links 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 hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.
