Florida Ridge Logo Design

Nearly every new Florida Ridge company understands that they need a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly realize the vital role their organization logo will take in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo works far better than another. A business logo has an immediate and sustaining impact on the growth of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Florida Ridge businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand scrutiny, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  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 unique, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Florida Ridge coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and cafe were actually launching in an old part of the city and hoped to visualize a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks via creating a company logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs created for Florida Ridge medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that studies the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I recall where I was able to incorporate 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 serves fairly literally, but 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 enhancement to the name that makes it more captivating, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a household fun facility in Florida Ridge.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity 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 incorporate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 title itself to provide the logo a much 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 used for marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Florida Ridge travel professional 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 field because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather project emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all 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 considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo by utilizing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Florida Ridge logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Florida Ridge logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the customer 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 however the client, even though 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”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased point of views on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they loved 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of obstacles, but the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Florida Ridge publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, but it really is the most vital part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the very first thing a person sees in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems like that in many occurrences one of the things individuals usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 Florida Ridge logo design used for advertising as well as a tag design for Vintage Case includes an antiquated typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo created for an orthodontist in Florida Ridge, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects considering that it appears that almost every dental professional incorporates 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 company marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain 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 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 dentistry industry.

I really enjoy doing dental logo designs 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 stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered 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 obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family members nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in height to represent 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 brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair design workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo which carried an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious path of creating just a stylized orchid but instead created a logo design which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is more often than not the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge in 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 about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the owner of the business and in many cases the meaning behind a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the business it represents.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Florida Ridge business logo dsign utilizing an illustration that grabs the interest of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.
