Bridgeport Logo Design

Nearly every new Bridgeport company knows they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs entirely comprehend the key role their organization logo will take in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design functions more effectively than another. A logo design has an immediate and long term effect on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Bridgeport businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand deliberation, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Bridgeport coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an older section of the community and wanted to visualize a retro vibe without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs via creating a business logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as germs made for Bridgeport medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the clinical examination of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, but it does it in a way that integrates 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 helps make it more captivating, more attention grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a family fun facility in Bridgeport.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dentists, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually reflect an environment 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better dynamic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Bridgeport 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they frequently tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design by employing 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Bridgeport logo but also to show the depth in her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bridgeport logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial assessments on the value of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they loved the design and were able to persuade 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo recognize how important a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo project possesses it’s share of challenges, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Bridgeport book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most important part of a published book because it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it looks like that in many cases 1 of the things individuals usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a sense of air travel and it was surely a winner.

 Bridgeport logo style utilized for advertising and marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Situation features an archaic font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, that looked to be antique cases. For this logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that provided a fluid old-fashioned feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another era.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Bridgeport, layout include an arc with lines converging through it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects because it seems that each and every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

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

William McNally logo design designed for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in height to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style developed for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which related a feeling of relaxation and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design that did not go the obvious path of making merely a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is in most cases the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Logo design for a software application developer the layout features as well as renowned aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive management. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge in between the software and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

A logo design including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Bridgeport logo dsign with a graphic which seizes the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.
Logo style MQ ranches, this logo style has actually a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really designed for an Bridgeport area farm it was actually devised for a commodities broker, and this particular trademark was one of many which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Logo design developed for using an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is similar to a popular sporting activities team logo.

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked closely with the owner to create a business logo that worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
