Land O' Lakes Logo Design

Each and every new Land O’ Lakes organization understands that they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs thoroughly are aware of the pivotal role their company logo can make in their success, or why one business logo performs far better than another. A logo has an immediate and long term influence on the financial success of a company, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization.

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Land O' Lakes coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an old section of the community and wanted to cast a vintage feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks by creating a logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and germs made for Land O' Lakes medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical assessment of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping green frog made for a family fun center in Land O' Lakes.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the types of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really reflect 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, 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 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 and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Land O' Lakes traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead project emotional journeys through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently share whole 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 fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Land O’ Lakes logo but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Land O' Lakes logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A but the customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get honest point of views on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their business logo realize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo job has it’s portion of obstacles, however the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that virtually every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand 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 dentistry profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a 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 pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal about 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 company or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission 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 instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo that related a feeling of peace and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is oftentimes the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the emphasis on the perception that they really wanted to project to their customers.

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 computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Land O’ Lakes business logo dsign using an image which garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
