Upper Alton Logo Design

Nearly every new Upper Alton company knows they need a logo, yet few new business owners entirely understand the essential role their logo will take in their success, or precisely why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and long term impact on the financial success of a company, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Upper Alton businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any sort 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 company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Upper Alton coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening up in an old part of the area and wished to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as boring or low energy. I achieved the two jobs via developing a trademark concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria made for Upper Alton medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet 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 enhancement to the name that makes it more interesting, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a household enjoyable facility in Upper Alton.

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 usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental experts, and attorneys 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 business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a some springs into the concept 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 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 give the logo a better lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Upper Alton travel digital 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 fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead project emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories through 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 frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design by making use of 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  Upper Alton logo design but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Upper Alton logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement 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, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved 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 incorporate 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.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo design realize how vital a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design job has it’s portion of challenges, but the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Upper Alton publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, yet it is the most necessary part of a printed book since it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the opportunity they will ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

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

Air LA logo made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it looks like that in many cases one of the things consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of air travel and it was definitely a victory.

 Upper Alton logo style made use of for marketing as well as a tag style for Vintage Instance includes an old-fashioned font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Upper Alton, design include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo but 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 profession.

I really enjoy doing dental business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design developed for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in height to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to 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 pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about 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 illustrates itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo style created for a hair style studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo that carried an atmosphere of relaxation and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious path of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo design that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is oftentimes the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the importance on the feeling that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Logo layout for a software program developer the style attributes and also renowned element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive operations. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a spot to sell their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Upper Alton logo design dsign with an illustration that pulls in the interest of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

The MQ farms emblem idea wasn’t really composed for an Upper Alton area farm it was really created for an investments broker, and this logo design was one of several that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Logo design designed for the use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font that is similar to a popular sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant business logos and business 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 think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the business owner to develop a business logo which worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
