Citrus Park Logo Design

Each and every new Citrus Park venture understands that they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs fully realize the essential role their logo design can play in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo functions far better than another. A logo has a critical and long-term influence on the prosperity of a business, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Citrus Park businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  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 unique, and they are suitable for the business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Citrus Park coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an old section of the city and wished to project a nostalgic feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I achieved the two tasks by creating a trademark design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and germs designed for Citrus Park medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that deals with the laboratory assessment of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a household fun center in Citrus Park.

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 types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features 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 destination to go and spring does not 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Citrus Park traveling digital 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they often convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by making use of 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Citrus Park logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Citrus Park logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

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

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral judgements on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they adored 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how important a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of obstacles, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Citrus Park book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most critical part of a published book given that it is often the very first thing a person views in the book shop. With respect to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will likely ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with benches modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it looks like that in many cases 1 of the items consumers often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a sense of air travel and it was certainly a victory.

 Citrus Park logo style utilized for advertising as well as a label layout for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font style design.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Citrus Park, design consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it appears that every single dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would definitely 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 associated to a dentist’s logo but 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 industry.

I really love doing dentistry business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that does not have a solitary 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 the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to 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 company or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed 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 to describe exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a hair style workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo which carried an atmosphere of simplicity and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of creating simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is usually the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the focus on the feeling that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Logo design for a software application programmer the style features and famous element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk operations. 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 computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance behind a logo design is just as important as how it serves the company it represents.

A logo style featuring an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly realized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a spot to sell off their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Citrus Park logo dsign with a graphic that garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.
Logo layout MQ farms, this logo style has an area incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t really created for an Citrus Park area farm it was in reality devised for an investments broker, and this particular logo was one of many which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was really to produce a image that projects confidence, financial success, and affluence.
Logo created for making use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant script font that is reminiscent of a famous sporting activities group logo.

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to produce a business logo that worked really 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 lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
