Tampa Logo Design

Every new Tampa venture understands that they need a logo, but few entrepreneurs fully understand the crucial role their logo will make in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design works far better than another. A logo design has a critical and long term effect on the growth of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Tampa businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand deliberation, they can be grasped in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 personal, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Tampa coffee cafe and 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 town and hoped to project an old-fashioned tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved the two jobs via designing a logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and bacteria designed for Tampa medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, but it does it in a way that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family enjoyable center in Tampa.

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 sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept 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 made 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 path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Tampa traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job 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 capture places or things but rather convey emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand 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 mere words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo design 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Tampa logo but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Tampa logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the customer, while 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”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral assessments on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved the design 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 … 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 weird creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo understand how important a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, however the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works 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.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Tampa book publisher

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most critical part of a printed book considering that it is often the primary thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the opportunity they will ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems like that in many cases 1 of the things consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Tampa, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it seems that 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 small business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including 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 profession.

I actually love doing dental care logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that doesn’t have a single 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 design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo that conveyed a spirit of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design that did not go the obvious path of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a company logo that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is generally the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge in between the software program and 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 business 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. However it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the significance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.
