Kentucky Logo Design

Virtually every new Kentucky company understands that they need a logo, yet few entrepreneurs thoroughly comprehend the pivotal role their company logo can make in their success, or precisely why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A business logo has an instant and long-term effect on the financial success of a business, select the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a company.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Kentucky  businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require consideration, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to movie screens a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate 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 represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be lasting and should feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an older part of the area and really wanted to project a vintage atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by means of designing a logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and germs designed for Kentucky, Kentucky medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Typically I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves quite 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 brand that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a household fun facility in Kentucky, Kentucky.

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 jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy mood.

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

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - developed for Kentucky, Kentucky traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories using 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 fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo design by utilizing the positive space in the design to say 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  Kentucky logo design but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Kentucky logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

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

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get objective viewpoints on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really liked the concept 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo comprehend how crucial a logo is for their business so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of obstacles, however the biggest challenge is finding 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 image they see for themselves.

Airlines come and depart yet it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the traits consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to conferring a spirit of air travel and it was certainly a success.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Kentucky, Kentucky, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that 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 careers when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

I really love doing dentist logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to describe precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a hair design workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo that communicated a sense of simplicity and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is oftentimes the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the main focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their clients.

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 between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few 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. Nevertheless it meant something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the meaning supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

I created their Kentucky logo dsign along with a graphic that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Fortunately, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st try.

Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the business owner to develop a business logo which worked very 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 sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
