Elk Grove Village Logo Design

Each and every new Elk Grove Village business understands that they require a logo, yet few new business owners fully comprehend the key role their company logo can make in their becoming successful, or why one logo design works far better than another. A logo design has an instant and long-term impact on the success of a business, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Elk Grove Village companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand deliberation, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Elk Grove Village coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an old part of town and wanted to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both of these jobs by means of developing a trademark design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Elk Grove Village clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the field of medicine that works with the clinical examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 interesting, more attention grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping green frog developed for a family fun center in Elk Grove Village.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and legal professionals 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 name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an atmosphere 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 provide the logo a more lively high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Elk Grove Village traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project 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 don’t capture locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something the same 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Elk Grove Village logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Elk Grove Village logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly 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 shape as a stroke in the character A but my customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased point of views on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really liked the design 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 alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of challenges, however the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Elk Grove Village publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most critical part of a published book due to the fact that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will likely ever have to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems like that in many cases one of the aspects people tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 Elk Grove Village logo style utilized for advertising and marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Case features an archaic font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for musical instruments, that looked to be much older cases.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Elk Grove Village, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging logo design projects considering that it seems that every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 profession.

I really enjoy doing dentistry logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design 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 design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo that carried a spirit of contentment and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious course of crafting merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a company logo that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is frequently the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

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

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the owner of the company and in many cases the significance supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a location to sell off their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Elk Grove Village business logo dsign utilizing an image which garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked directly with the business owner to develop a business logo that worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
