Kenwood Logo Design

Nearly every new Kenwood organization understands that they are in need of a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly understand the vital role their company logo will make in their financial success, or why one logo design performs better than another. A business logo has an instant and long term influence on the financial success of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Kenwood companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any 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 organization they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Kenwood coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

I fulfilled the two tasks via creating a custom logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria made for Kenwood medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical assessment of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I recollect in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, however it does it in a way 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 intriguing, more attention grabbing and more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a household fun center in Kenwood.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 usual of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really resonate 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 name itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Kenwood traveling 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 niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative 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 much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo by making use of 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Kenwood logo design but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Kenwood logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design projects that I take on I honestly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design 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 idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral opinions on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he shared 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of difficulties, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Kenwood book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most necessary part of a published book because it is usually the very first thing a person sees in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever get to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems that in many instances one of the traits individuals often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was definitely a winner.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Kenwood, design include an arc with lines converging via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth related 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 industry.

I really enjoy doing dental care logo designs 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 inevitably I created a layout 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 design. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to explain how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a hair design workshop including a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which communicated an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious path of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead created a logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the importance on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

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

The business logo 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 regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies 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 understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell off their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Kenwood business logo dsign using an illustration that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm 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 travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.
