Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Pearl City, Hawaii coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an old part of town and really wanted to project a nostalgic tone without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled both of these tasks by means of developing a business logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria developed for Pearl City, Hawaii medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine that works with the laboratory examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog designed for a family enjoyable facility in Pearl City, Hawaii.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably 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 physicians, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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 provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - designed for Pearl City, Hawaii 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 rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with mere words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo by making use of 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  Pearl City logo design but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Pearl City logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly 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 shape as a stroke in the character A however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of 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 honest assessments on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their business logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo job possesses it’s share of obstacles, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most vital part of a published book due to the fact that it is often the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Pearl City, Hawaii, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it seems that each and every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company 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 dentistry industry.

I really enjoy doing dentistry logo designs simply 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 provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed 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 attempts to use the logo to illustrate exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style developed for a hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo which carried a sense of relaxation and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design that did not go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo design that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is in most cases the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the emphasis on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk management. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection in between the software and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated 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 pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it represents.

Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Pearl City logo design dsign using an illustration which captures the interest of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Luckily, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st try.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked closely with the proprietor to produce a business logo which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
