Crown Point, Indiana Logo Design

Nearly every new Crown Point organization understands that they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs entirely understand the essential role their organization logo can perform in their financial success, or why one logo works more effectively than another. A business logo has an immediate and long-term influence on the financial success of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a business.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Crown Point, Indiana coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were opening up in an older section of the community and wished to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks by designing a symbol design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs designed for Crown Point, Indiana clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 an explanation 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 unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog designed for a household fun center in Crown Point, Indiana.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually reflect 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better dynamic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also believe 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 just like my frog design.

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - developed for Crown Point, Indiana travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of the majority of 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 a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something the same 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Crown Point logo but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Crown Point logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his contempt for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial opinions on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they really liked 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their business logo comprehend how essential a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of difficulties, however the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Crown Point, Indiana publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, but it really is the most necessary part of a printed book since it is usually the first thing a person sees in the book shop. With respect to a publisher, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

Air LA logo developed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many cases 1 of the aspects folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a spirit of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Crown Point logo design utilized for advertising as well as a label layout for Vintage Case includes an old font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be older cases.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Crown Point, Indiana, design consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs considering that it seems that every single dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo 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 actually really love doing dentistry logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design designed for a family not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters startled in elevation to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style created for a hair style studio including 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 projected a feeling of contentment and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of making merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions 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 situated a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell off their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Crown Point logo design dsign with a graphic that captures the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Good in that it offers a designer the liberty to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye in the absence of recognizing where the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first shot.

Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to produce a logo design which worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
