Alsip Logo Design

Every new Alsip business understands that they are in need of a logo, however few entrepreneurs thoroughly comprehend the pivotal role their logo design can perform in their success, or why one logo design functions far better than another. A logo has an instant and long term influence on the growth of a company, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Alsip businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require scrutiny, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will be legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any sort 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 company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Alsip coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an older section of the city and wished to visualize a retro tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by means of creating a sign design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide and germs designed for Alsip medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Alsip.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere 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 much more lively high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - designed for Alsip travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire 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 fullness which can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something similar to this logo design by making use of the positive space in the design to suggest 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  Alsip logo but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the client 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 letter A however the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his contempt for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced assessments on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design recognize how vital a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of difficulties, but the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Alsip publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, however it is the most essential part of a printed book since it is often the primary thing a person sees in the book store. For a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever get to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems that in many instances one of the aspects people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a sense of airline flight and it was certainly a winner.

 Alsip logo style utilized for advertising and marketing as well as a tag layout for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in all new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be antique cases.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Alsip, style include an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it seems that every single dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

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

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

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be overly 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 wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to illustrate precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design that communicated a sense of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious path of crafting merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is in most cases the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the main focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Logo design for a software program programmer the layout features as well as renowned component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk operations. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection in between the software program and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the 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 symbolized something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo design is just as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

A logo design including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to market their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Alsip logo dsign with an image which seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.
Logo layout MQ farms, this logo design has actually a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really produced for an Alsip area farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this logo design was one of multiple which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to make a brand mark that projects esteem, effectiveness, and wealth.
Logo made for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script typeface that is evocative a famous sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted dozens of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the proprietor to create a business logo that worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
