Lanham-Seabrook Logo Design

Each and every new Lanham-Seabrook organization knows they need a logo, yet few entrepreneurs thoroughly grasp the pivotal role their business logo can take in their financial success, or the reason that one logo functions far better than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term effect on the growth of a company, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Lanham-Seabrook companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t demand contemplation, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of 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 organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a Lanham-Seabrook coffee cafe as well as 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 section of town and wanted to visualize a retro atmosphere without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs by designing a company logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and also germs developed for Lanham-Seabrook medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog designed for a family members fun center in Lanham-Seabrook.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a handful of springs into the concept 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 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 give the logo a more lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Lanham-Seabrook travel 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead project emotional experiences through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they frequently tell entire stories through 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 frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something comparable 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lanham-Seabrook 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.

 Lanham-Seabrook logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however 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 however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family did not share his aversion for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get objective judgements on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they adored the concept 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how essential a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s share of hurdles, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most vital part of a published book given that it is usually the very first thing a person views in the bookstore.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems that in many occurrences 1 of the items individuals tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a sense of air travel and it was certainly a victory.

 Lanham-Seabrook logo layout utilized for advertising and marketing and a label style for Vintage Situation includes an antiquated font style layout.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Lanham-Seabrook, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that 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 most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 dentistry or a particular field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually 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 people residing 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to describe 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 fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a hair layout studio featuring 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 that communicated an atmosphere of serenity and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious course of crafting just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is oftentimes the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the importance on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

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

The 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 point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it represents.

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 operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to market their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Lanham-Seabrook logo dsign using a graphic that seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors.
