Goodings Grove Logo Design

Nearly every new Goodings Grove venture knows they require a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly realize the vital role their logo design will take in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A logo has an immediate and lasting effect on the growth of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Goodings Grove businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Goodings Grove coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an older part of the community and really wanted to visualize an old-fashioned atmosphere without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished the two jobs by means of designing a business logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Goodings Grove medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that works 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 recall in which I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

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 types of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 provide the logo a more lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and integrated 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 transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Goodings Grove travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather convey emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they often tell whole 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 often have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something similar to this logo design 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Goodings Grove logo design but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Goodings Grove logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the client 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 character A however the customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased point of views on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo recognize how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s share of obstacles, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most critical part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the first thing a person sees in the book store. With respect to a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever have to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

Airlines come and depart however it looks like that in many instances 1 of the things people tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Goodings Grove, design include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that each and every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately 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 design over to the client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for 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 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 technique to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective 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 you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair layout workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that carried a sense of serenity and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious course of making just a stylized orchid but instead created a business logo that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is usually the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the main focus on the perception that they really wanted to project to their clients.

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

The business logo 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 explain anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

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 passions, a spot to sell off their secondhand equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Goodings Grove logo dsign along with a graphic which garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I knew 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 relaxed habitat.
