Allapattah Logo Design

Each and every new Allapattah venture knows they require a logo, however few entrepreneurs fully understand the pivotal role their organization logo can play in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo performs more effectively than another. A logo design has an immediate and long-term influence on the growth of a business, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Allapattah companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be understood in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of 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 business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Allapattah coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an old section of the town and hoped to visualize a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by developing a custom logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Allapattah medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine that deals with the clinical examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, however it does it in a fashion 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 enhancer to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo design with a leaping green frog created for a household enjoyable facility in Allapattah.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Allapattah 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 rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole 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 frequently 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 voice 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  Allapattah logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Allapattah logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his hatred for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get objective opinions on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really liked the design and were able to reason with 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 choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how important a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of hurdles, however the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

Airlines come and go nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects people often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects because it seems that each and every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I actually love doing dentistry logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain 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 does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a household not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in height to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to 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 institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo which carried a sense of calmness and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious path of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is frequently the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the importance on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo design 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 explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.
