Cantonment Logo Design

Virtually every new Cantonment venture realizes that they are in need of a logo, however few entrepreneurs thoroughly recognize the pivotal role their organization logo will take in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo works more effectively than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting influence on the success of a business, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Cantonment companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  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 business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Cantonment coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an old part of the town and wished to project a retro feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs via creating a business logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria designed for Cantonment medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the laboratory assessment of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I recall in which I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, but 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a family enjoyable center in Cantonment.

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 also 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 physicians, dentists, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Cantonment traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by using 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Cantonment logo but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really liked the concept and were able to reason with 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 preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Cantonment publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most necessary part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the initial thing a person sees in the book store. For a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many instances 1 of the items individuals usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a sense of flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Cantonment, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed 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 love doing dental care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design that doesn’t 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 concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion 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 method to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered 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 project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate precisely how people should 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 fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that communicated a sense of serenity and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious course of creating just a stylized orchid but rather created a company logo that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is more often than not the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the importance on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their clients.

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge in between the software program 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 point out anything to anyone regarding 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 meaning supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the company it represents.

I designed their Cantonment logo design dsign utilizing an illustration which pulls in the attention of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors.
