Metairie Logo Design

Every new Metairie business realizes that they are in need of a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly are aware of the vital role their organization logo can play in their success, or why one logo functions better than another. A business logo has an instant and long-term effect on the prosperity of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Metairie businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require contemplation, they can be realized in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any 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 company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Metairie coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an old section of the area and wished to visualize a vintage vibe without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by creating a custom logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria created for Metairie medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, but it does it in a way 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 enhancement to the name that makes it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a family enjoyable center in Metairie.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually 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 few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really 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 name itself to give the logo a much more dynamic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and included 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 trail, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Metairie travel 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 niche field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes 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 great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by employing 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Metairie logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Metairie logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I seriously savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm 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 seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get impartial point of views on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really loved the design and were able to reason with 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 alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo design comprehend how crucial a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed 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, design for Metairie book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, but it is the most important part of a printed book considering that it is often the very first thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity they will ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

Air LA logo developed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with benches customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it looks like that in many cases one of the traits folks usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

 Metairie logo design used for marketing and also a label style for Vintage Case includes an archaic font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for music instruments, which looked to be older cases. For this logo concept I attempted to come up with a logo that provided a fluid retro feel to it and could easily be used for anything from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different era.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Metairie, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it appears that virtually every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand 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 dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I really enjoy doing dentist business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo created for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in elevation 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 depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain how people ought to 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 immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo that carried a feeling of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of crafting merely a stylized orchid but instead created a company logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is more often than not the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the importance on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

Logo design for a software developer the layout functions and legendary aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge 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 number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in many cases the meaning behind a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

A logo style featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to sell off their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Metairie business logo dsign with an illustration that garners the interest of traffic and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

Logo developed for the use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript typeface that is similar to a renowned sports group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed dozens of restaurant logos and establishment 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo design which worked extremely 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 neon sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
