Bartlett, Illinois Logo Design

Every new Bartlett company understands that they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners fully comprehend the key role their organization’s logo will take in their becoming successful, or why one logo functions more effectively than another. A logo has an instant and long term effect on the prosperity of a business, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Bartlett, Illinois companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Bartlett, Illinois coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were opening up in an old section of the town and wished to visualize an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks via designing a business logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and bacteria developed for Bartlett, Illinois medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical examination of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the only instance I recollect where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, but it does it in a fashion 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 appealing, more interest grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog developed for a family members enjoyable facility in Bartlett, Illinois.

Cool Springz | 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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten 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 concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really 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 name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also think 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.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - designed for Bartlett, Illinois traveling 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather project emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire stories using 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 which can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo by utilizing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Bartlett logo but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bartlett logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design 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 concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but my client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they adored the concept and were able to reason with 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 choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their business logo realize how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design project has it’s share of challenges, however the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Bartlett, Illinois, design include an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it seems that every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 profession.

I actually love doing dentistry logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom 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 depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to 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 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 overtly tacky about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo which related a sense of tranquility and class 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 created a logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is in most cases the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the focus on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the business it represents.

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Bartlett business logo dsign with an illustration which captures the interest of traffic and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Luckily, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the first shot.

Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked closely with the proprietor to design a logo design that worked extremely 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 neon signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
