Palmetto Bay Logo Design

Every new Palmetto Bay business knows they need a logo, but few new business owners fully grasp the key role their company logo can play in their success, or precisely why one logo design works far better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining impact on the growth of a business, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Palmetto Bay 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 logo designs do not require consideration, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be lasting and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Palmetto Bay coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually launching in an older part of the city and wished to visualize an old-fashioned feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks via creating a logo design that includes 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 style with a microscope slide and germs created for Palmetto Bay medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that works with the clinical evaluation of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, but it does it in a way that incorporates 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 name that helps make it more appealing, more focus grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family members fun center in Palmetto Bay.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity 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 few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 give the logo a better lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Palmetto Bay travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often convey entire 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 resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something similar 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Palmetto Bay logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Palmetto Bay logo design 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 seriously savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the customer 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 my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely despised 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 particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial judgements on the value of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really loved the design and were able to reason with 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo understand how vital a logo is for their business so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most crucial part of a printed book because it is in most cases the very first thing a person views in the book store. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever have to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it looks like that in many cases one of the traits individuals tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of flight and it was certainly a success.

 Palmetto Bay logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag design for Vintage Case features an antiquated font style layout.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Palmetto Bay, layout include an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it seems that every single dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s 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 dental care logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain field 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 inevitably I created a concept that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly 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 business or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo which related a spirit of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is frequently the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the attention on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel attaches the computer 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 and hardware.

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

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a location to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Palmetto Bay business logo dsign using an illustration that garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.
