KÄ«hei Logo Design

Nearly every new KÄ«hei organization realizes that they are in need of a logo, but few entrepreneurs entirely comprehend the key role their organization logo can perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo functions better than another. A logo has an instant and lasting impact on the success of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help KÄ«hei companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t demand contemplation, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a KÄ«hei coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening up in an old part of the community and hoped to cast an old-fashioned feel without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both jobs by means of designing 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 classic business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria developed for KÄ«hei medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the only instance I remember in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within 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 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more captivating, more interest grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a household enjoyable center in KÄ«hei.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool 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 usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - developed for KÄ«hei travel professional 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 rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys by means of the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  KÄ«hei logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 KÄ«hei logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment 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 silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his aversion for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral point of views on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo comprehend how important a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s portion of difficulties, however the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for KÄ«hei 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 important part of a printed book since it is usually the very first thing a person sees in the bookstore. Regarding a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever have to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

Air LA logo design developed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it looks like that in many occurrences one of the aspects consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a sense of flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 KÄ«hei logo style made use of for marketing as well as a tag layout for Vintage Instance features an archaic font design.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in KÄ«hei, design consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects considering that it seems that virtually every dentist features 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 careers when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

I really enjoy doing dental logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate precisely how individuals should 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 immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that projected a spirit of calmness and connection for their new hair salon. I created a design that did not go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but instead created a logo design which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is usually the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the emphasis on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

The kernel connects the system 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 few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the owner of the company and in many cases the significance behind a logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly knew the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their KÄ«hei business logo dsign with a graphic which garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite.
