Bayou Cane Logo Design

Every new Bayou Cane venture knows they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners entirely comprehend the essential role their logo design will play in their becoming successful, or why one logo design functions far better than another. A business logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the success of a company, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Bayou Cane businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand contemplation, they can be understood in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Bayou Cane coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an old part of town and really wanted to project a nostalgic vibe without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks via creating a business logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide and germs created for Bayou Cane clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet 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 brand that makes it more appealing, more attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a household enjoyable facility in Bayou Cane.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 norm of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really resonate an environment 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 impression.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - made for Bayou Cane 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something much 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Bayou Cane logo but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bayou Cane logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but the client 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 but the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get honest opinions on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they adored 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 went with the original design.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design recognize how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s portion of difficulties, however the largest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Bayou Cane book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most vital part of a published book because it is in most cases the very first thing a person sees in the book store. Concerning a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever have to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it looks like that in many cases one of the traits folks usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although 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 sense of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

 Bayou Cane logo style made use of for advertising and marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Bayou Cane, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs considering that it appears that each and every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 really enjoy doing dentistry business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that does not 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Many 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 overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to explain specifically 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 failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo design 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 desired a logo which projected a feeling of ease and connection for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious course of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is oftentimes the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the importance on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel connects 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 and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining to 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 many cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell off their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Bayou Cane business logo dsign utilizing an illustration that seizes the attention of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t really created for an Bayou Cane regional farm it was really devised for a commodities broker, and this business logo was one of many which fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

I have created dozens of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked directly with the proprietor to create a logo design 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 above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
