Indiana Logo Design

Every new Indiana business person understands that they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs entirely recognize the key role their logo design will play in their becoming successful, or the reason that one logo performs more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting effect on the prosperity of a company, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of an organization.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Indiana  companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are unique, and they are suitable for the organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be ageless and will feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.
Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Indiana, Indiana coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an older section of the area and wanted to visualize a vintage atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks by designing a logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria designed for Indiana, Indiana medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more captivating, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a household enjoyable center in Indiana, Indiana.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not 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 name itself to give the logo a much more lively 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 promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - made for Indiana, Indiana 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 believe it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Indiana logo but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Indiana logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I truly relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the client 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 but the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective point of views on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they adored 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 alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how important a logo is for their business so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo job possesses it’s share of hurdles, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

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

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, yet it is the most critical part of a printed book given that it is often the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems that in many cases one of the traits folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a sense of flight and it was definitely a victory.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Indiana, Indiana, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that almost every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless 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 dentistry logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that does not 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for 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 brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy 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 institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair design 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 logo that communicated an atmosphere of ease and class for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious direction of designing simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo design that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their customers.

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

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

I tailored their Indiana logo dsign with a graphic that garners the attention of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Luckily, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the 1st shot.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the business owner to design a business logo which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
