Tarpon Springs Logo Design

Every new Tarpon Springs venture realizes that they require a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the essential role their logo design will take in their financial success, or precisely why one logo design functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and long term impact on the prosperity of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Tarpon Springs businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand consideration, they can be realized in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will be legible and just as emotive at every size.
  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 unique, and they are suitable for the company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Tarpon Springs coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an older section of the town and wished to cast a nostalgic vibe without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs via developing a trademark concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as germs developed for Tarpon Springs medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the only instance I recall in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, yet it does it in a fashion 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 brand that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping green frog designed for a household enjoyable facility in Tarpon Springs.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really resonate an environment 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Tarpon Springs travel digital 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 specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something similar to this logo by employing the positive space in the design to say 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  Tarpon Springs logo but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Tarpon Springs logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I truly 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but my customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get objective judgements on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they adored 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 include 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 design.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo design realize how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, however the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Tarpon Springs publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many cases one of the traits people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Tarpon Springs, layout include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it seems that every single dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth related 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 industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too 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 downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to describe exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo which carried a feeling of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious course of designing simply a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is generally the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the attention on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection between the software and 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone with regards 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 many cases the symbolism supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to market their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Tarpon Springs logo dsign with a graphic that pulls in the attention of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors.
