Milford, Connecticut Logo Design

Virtually every new Milford business professional knows they require a logo, however few new business owners entirely comprehend the essential role their organization’s logo will make in their financial success, or exactly why one logo performs better than another. A logo has an immediate and lasting influence on the financial success of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were opening in an older part of town and wished to cast a retro tone without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks by means of designing a business logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs made for Milford, Connecticut clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 name that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping green frog created for a household enjoyable facility in Milford, Connecticut.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which 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 obvious choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for Milford, Connecticut travel 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 niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather communicate emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo design by employing 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Milford logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Milford logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer 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 character A however my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective point of views on the merit of a design concept. 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of obstacles, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates 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 Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many instances 1 of the things folks usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization 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 undoubtedly a winner.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Milford, Connecticut, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging logo design projects considering that it seems that each and every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 profession.

I really love doing dental care logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain 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 ultimately I created a concept 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 concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

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 community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be overly literal about 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 business or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to describe how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo design produced for a hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that related a spirit of calmness and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious path of making merely a stylized orchid but instead created a logo design which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

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

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone about 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 quite a few cases the significance behind a business logo is just as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first shot.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the business owner to produce a logo design which worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
