Hunt Valley Logo Design

Nearly every new Hunt Valley business knows they require a logo, however few new business owners fully realize the essential role their logo can take in their becoming successful, or exactly why one logo design performs far better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long-term influence on the financial success of a business, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Hunt Valley businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand deliberation, they can be realized in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  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 personal, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Hunt Valley coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an old part of the area and really wanted to visualize an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by creating a business logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria designed for Hunt Valley medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I call to mind where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, but 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 name that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a family members fun center in Hunt Valley.

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 done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and attorneys 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 name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Hunt Valley traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather communicate emotional journeys through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they often tell 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 which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo design by employing the positive space in the design to suggest 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  Hunt Valley logo design but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A but the client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get honest assessments on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored 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 include every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how crucial a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design job has it’s allotment of difficulties, but the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems like that in many instances 1 of the aspects consumers usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of flight and it was surely a winner.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Hunt Valley, style consist of an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it seems that almost every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth associated 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 profession.

I actually love doing dental logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design 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 particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures 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 discovered that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo style created for a hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that conveyed a spirit of tranquility and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo design that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is more often than not the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the focus on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive management. 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 bridge 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 couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

I tailored their Hunt Valley logo dsign along with an image which captures the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
