Hyattsville Logo Design

Each and every new Hyattsville business knows they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners fully are aware of the pivotal role their business logo can take in their financial success, or why one logo performs far better than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting influence on the prosperity of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Hyattsville businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require contemplation, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of device, in print, on product 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 stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Hyattsville coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening up in an old part of the area and wished to project a retro feel without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled the two tasks by developing a trademark concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs developed for Hyattsville clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory evaluation of specimens 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 call to mind in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Generally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, however 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 enhancer to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable center in Hyattsville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, probably 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 medical professionals, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy mood.

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 think this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - designed for Hyattsville 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 think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories using 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 often have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo by using 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Hyattsville logo but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Hyattsville logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get honest opinions on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they loved the concept and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate 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.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design understand how important a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo project has it’s portion of difficulties, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most essential part of a printed book since it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the book store.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the aspects consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them.

 Hyattsville logo design made use of for advertising and marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Instance includes an archaic font style design.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Hyattsville, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it seems that every dental professional features 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 business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that does not 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 apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to explain precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design that projected a feeling of relaxation and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which did not go the obvious course of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is in most cases the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their customers.

The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection in between the software program and computer hardware.

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

A logo design including a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to market their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Hyattsville business logo dsign along with an image that grabs the interest of traffic and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, 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 neat project in which I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo which worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
