Oak Forest Logo Design

Each and every new Oak Forest organization understands that they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs fully recognize the key role their logo design will play in their becoming successful, or why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A logo design has an instant and lasting impact on the financial success of a company, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Oak Forest businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require deliberation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Oak Forest coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were launching in an old section of the town and wanted to visualize a nostalgic feel without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs via designing a custom logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Oak Forest medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the only instance I remember where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, however it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 enhancement to the name that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping green frog made for a family enjoyable facility in Oak Forest.

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 sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an atmosphere 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was turned 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 route, a stream, and also a tree - made for Oak Forest traveling professional 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather convey emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo by employing the positive space in the design to voice 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  Oak Forest logo but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Oak Forest logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really loved the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo project has it’s portion of challenges, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Oak Forest book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, but it really is the most crucial part of a published book given that it is ordinarily the very first thing a person sees in the book store. For a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will ever have to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many instances 1 of the things folks tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a feeling of airline flight and it was surely a success.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Oak Forest, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that virtually every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo 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 profession.

I actually love doing dental business logos 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 clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo created for a family nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the families in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that explains itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo that communicated an atmosphere of ease and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo design which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge in 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 number of 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. However, it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a spot to sell off their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Oak Forest logo dsign with an illustration which seizes the interest of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
