Jacksonville Beach Logo Design

Virtually every new Jacksonville Beach organization knows they need a logo, yet few entrepreneurs thoroughly realize the essential role their business logo can make in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design works better than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term effect on the success of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Jacksonville Beach businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be realized in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Jacksonville Beach coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were actually launching in an older section of the city and wished to project a nostalgic vibe without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by designing a logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as bacteria created for Jacksonville Beach medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the clinical examination of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I call to mind where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

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

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they used for advertising. I also think 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.

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Jacksonville Beach traveling professional 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 field because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they frequently tell entire stories through 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 often have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Jacksonville Beach logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Jacksonville Beach logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I really relish 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 customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully 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 encourage them to share it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get honest point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they adored the design and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo understand how essential a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo design job has it’s share of hurdles, however the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects individuals often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Jacksonville Beach logo style made use of for advertising as well as a tag layout for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Jacksonville Beach, layout consist of an arc with lines converging through it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it appears that each and every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields 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 explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

I really enjoy doing dentistry logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution 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 obvious, they are still suggested 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 not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family unit 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 illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to explain how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo which carried a sense of peace and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious direction of designing just a stylized orchid but rather delivered a company logo that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is more often than not the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the importance on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel links 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 and computer hardware.

The 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 pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly realized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell off their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Jacksonville Beach logo dsign along with an image that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors.

I’ve designed quite a lot of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite.
