Louisiana Logo Design

Every new Louisiana organization understands that they need a logo, but few entrepreneurs fully are aware of the essential role their logo design can play in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo design functions far better than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting impact on the prosperity of a business, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a business.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Louisiana businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require scrutiny, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 personal, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bicycle created for a Louisiana coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an old section of the area and wanted to project a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by developing a symbol concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria made for Louisiana medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design Project

Pathology is the science which investigates the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the clinical evaluation of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I remember in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Typically I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a household enjoyable center in Louisiana.

Cool Springs | Retail Branding Project

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title 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 incorporated him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - created for Louisiana traveling digital 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they frequently share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Louisiana logo but also to illustrate the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Louisiana logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design Project

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased assessments on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo design recognize how vital a logo is for their company so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, but the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Louisiana publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design Project

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most crucial part of a printed book because it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever have to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books. This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design Project

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences one of the items people tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a good sense of airline flight and it was certainly a success.

 Louisiana logo design made use of for advertising and marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Instance features an old font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design Project

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Louisiana, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design Project

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it seems that every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain 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 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 industry. I really enjoy doing dentist business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on. Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.
William McNally logo design made for a household nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design Project

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to relate. The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.
Logo style created for a hair style workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that related a spirit of ease and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a business logo that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is oftentimes the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the attention on the perception that they wanted to project to their clients.

Logo design for a software developer the layout functions as well as renowned element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design Project

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection between the software program and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance behind a business logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to sell off their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts.

I created their Louisiana logo design utilizing an illustration which pulls in the attention of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

Logo style MQ ranches, this logo layout has actually a field incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design

The MQ farms company logo concept wasn’t really designed for an Louisiana area farm it was in reality created for a commodities broker, and this logo was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Good in that it grants a designer the opportunity to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo created for the use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is similar to a famous sports team logo.

I have crafted dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project in which I worked closely with the proprietor to develop a logo design which worked really 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 over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
