Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Belleville, Illinois coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an old part of the community and really wanted to project a nostalgic tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by means of developing a company logo design that contains 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 design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Belleville, Illinois clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical assessment of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I recollect in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, however it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 name that makes it more captivating, more interest grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping green frog made for a family enjoyable facility in Belleville, Illinois.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 usual of the kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to feature a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 give the logo a much more dynamic 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 advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Belleville, 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 places or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo by employing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Belleville logo design but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Belleville logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

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

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to share it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased opinions on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family 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 include 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 concept.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo understand how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of challenges, but the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Belleville, Illinois book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most necessary part of a published book due to the fact that it is often the initial thing a person views in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the opportunity they will likely ever have to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA logo design made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with the bars modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the things individuals often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a feeling of air travel and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Belleville logo design used for advertising as well as a label design for Vintage Situation includes an antiquated typeface style.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Belleville, Illinois, style include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that each and every dentist integrates 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 careers when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I actually enjoy doing dental logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family with in the design.

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 people in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered 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 hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to summarize specifically 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 been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design that communicated a feeling of calmness and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is generally the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the main focus on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves 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 situated a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance behind a business logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Belleville logo dsign utilizing an illustration which garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors.

Luckily, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st try.
