Kingsland Logo Design

Nearly every new Kingsland venture realizes that they require a logo, however few entrepreneurs fully are aware of the pivotal role their organization logo can take in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design performs better than another. A business logo has an immediate and lasting effect on the financial success of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Kingsland businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t demand consideration, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any 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 business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo style of a bicycle created for a Kingsland coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an old section of the town and wanted to cast a vintage atmosphere without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs via developing a custom logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs developed for Kingsland clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family members fun center in Kingsland.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 types of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy mood.

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 think this is the only time that a logo I did was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - created for Kingsland travel professional 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead reveal emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes 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 resonance that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design by using 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Kingsland logo but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Kingsland logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased viewpoints on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really loved the concept 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 design.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of challenges, but the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most essential part of a printed book because it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book store. With regard to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it looks like that in many cases one of the traits consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design 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 undoubtedly a success.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Kingsland, design include an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects considering that it appears that almost every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image 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 care profession.

I really love doing dentistry business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area 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 concept that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities staggered 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 logo that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to describe how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style created for a hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that communicated a sense of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious course of making simply a stylized orchid but rather created a logo that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the emphasis on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection between the software and hardware.

The logo design 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 spell out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance behind a logo design is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to sell their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Kingsland logo dsign using an image which garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

I have created loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite.
