Ballenger Creek Logo Design

Virtually every new Ballenger Creek business understands that they require a logo, yet few new business owners entirely grasp the key role their logo design can play in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo performs more effectively than another. A logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Ballenger Creek companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 unique, and they are suitable for the business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be lasting and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an older part of the town and wished to visualize a nostalgic vibe without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both tasks via creating a trademark design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria created for Ballenger Creek clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very 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 brand that helps make it more captivating, more focus grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a household fun center in Ballenger Creek.

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 kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not actually reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Ballenger Creek traveling professional 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 niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories through 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 frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo by making use of 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  Ballenger Creek logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Ballenger Creek logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

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

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial judgements on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really liked 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design understand how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job has it’s allotment of difficulties, but the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Ballenger Creek book author

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company 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 enjoy doing dental logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families 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 overly literal about 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 convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to summarize how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a hair layout 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 business logo that carried a sense of calmness and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo design which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is frequently the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to project to their clients.

The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge in between the software and hardware.

The business 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 explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism behind a business logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Ballenger Creek logo design dsign along with a graphic that seizes the attention of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
