Bloomingdale Logo Design

Virtually every new Bloomingdale company realizes that they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners fully are aware of the pivotal role their business logo can play in their success, or precisely why one logo design performs far better than another. A company logo has an immediate and sustaining influence on the success of a business, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Bloomingdale businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require scrutiny, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every 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 enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were launching in an old section of the area and wished to visualize a retro vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks via designing a company logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs developed for Bloomingdale clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog made for a family members fun center in Bloomingdale.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity 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 include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more dynamic high energy feel.

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

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Bloomingdale travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized 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 rather reveal emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they often share entire stories through their photography.

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

 Bloomingdale 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 business logo design projects that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the customer 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 letter A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they adored the design 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo understand how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo job possesses it’s share of difficulties, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most vital part of a printed book considering that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book store.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart nevertheless it seems like that in many instances 1 of the items people tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of flight and it was surely a success.

 Bloomingdale logo design utilized for advertising and marketing and a label design for Vintage Situation includes an old-fashioned font style design.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Bloomingdale, layout include an arc with lines converging with it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs because it appears that every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo 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 dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually 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 concept. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided 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 design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to illustrate how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a hair design workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo which conveyed a feeling of calmness and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of designing just a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is in most cases the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the main focus on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their clients.

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software program and computer 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 describe anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the meaning behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Bloomingdale business logo dsign using a graphic that garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.
