La Porte Logo Design

Nearly every new La Porte venture understands that they need a logo, yet few new business owners fully comprehend the vital role their organization logo can play in their success, or exactly why one logo design works far better than another. A business logo has an instant and lasting impact on the prosperity of a company, select the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help La Porte companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require scrutiny, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are unique, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a La Porte coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an older section of the community and wanted to cast a vintage tone without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both of these jobs by developing a symbol design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also germs made for La Porte clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical examination of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates 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 brand that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable center in La Porte.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 doctors, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had 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 integrate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for advertising and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - designed for La Porte traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead project emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they often convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo by utilizing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  La Porte 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.

 La Porte logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design projects that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but the client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to share it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get honest point of views on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they loved 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how crucial a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of obstacles, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most critical part of a published book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the bookstore.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems like that in many cases 1 of the aspects people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a spirit of air travel and it was certainly a victory.

Logo created for an orthodontist in La Porte, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs because it seems that every dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I really love doing dental logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities staggered in elevation to stand for a family with in the layout.

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 illustrative 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 technique to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo which projected a spirit of tranquility and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious path of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead designed a logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is more often than not the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the importance on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge in between the software and computer 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 identify anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant 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 serves the enterprise it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their La Porte business logo dsign utilizing an image that garners the interest of traffic and sends an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
