Elmhurst Logo Design

Nearly every new Elmhurst business realizes that they need a logo, however few entrepreneurs thoroughly understand the vital role their business logo will take in their becoming successful, or precisely why one business logo performs better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long term impact on the financial success of a company, go with the correct 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 longevity of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Elmhurst businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Elmhurst coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an older section of the area and wanted to cast a retro tone without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by means of creating a trademark concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria designed for Elmhurst clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the sole instance I recollect in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, but it does it in a way 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 helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a family enjoyable center in Elmhurst.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a couple of 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 logo project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a more lively high energy feeling.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Elmhurst travel digital 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo by using 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Elmhurst logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Elmhurst logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however 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 letter A however the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial point of views on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their business logo comprehend how important a logo design is for their organization so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s portion of challenges, but the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most essential part of a published book since it is in most cases the primary thing a person views in the book store.

Air LA | Logo Design

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Elmhurst, style include an arc with lines converging with it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo projects because it seems that each and every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

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

I really love doing dental logos simply 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 solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo developed for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities staggered in elevation to represent a family 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 illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal about 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 business or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that projected an atmosphere of serenity and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious route of designing merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is in most cases the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

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 connection in between the software program and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the meaning behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to market their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Elmhurst logo design dsign using an illustration which grabs the attention of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
