Parkville Logo Design

Virtually every new Parkville business realizes that they need a logo, however few entrepreneurs thoroughly realize the pivotal role their logo design can make in their success, or why one business logo functions far better than another. A business logo has an instant and long term impact on the prosperity of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Parkville businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at any size.
  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 organization they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bike developed for a Parkville coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an older part of the city and really wanted to project a vintage tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished each of the tasks by means of creating a business logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria designed for Parkville medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the clinical examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, but it does it in a way that incorporates 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 attention grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping green frog made for a household fun facility in Parkville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental experts, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really resonate 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also believe 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 design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - made for Parkville traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather reveal emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo by making use of 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Parkville logo design but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Parkville logo style 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 enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however my customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective judgements on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their business logo recognize how vital a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Parkville publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most vital part of a printed book because it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the book shop. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will likely ever have to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

Air LA logo made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with the bars modified to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many cases 1 of the things individuals usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a feeling of flight and it was certainly a winner.

 Parkville logo design made use of for marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Instance features an antiquated font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Parkville, style include an arc with lines converging with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it seems that each and every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely include 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 dental industry.

I really enjoy doing dental care 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 stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately 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 implied in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to represent 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 custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. 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 institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to summarize how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair design workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo that carried a feeling of calmness and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a business logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the attention on the perception that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection in between the software and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located 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 regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell off their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Parkville logo dsign using an illustration that grabs the attention of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t actually designed for an Parkville regional farm it was in reality created for an investments broker, and this logo was one of several that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to produce a image that projected confidence, success, and luxury.
Logo made for the use of an indicator for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is similar to a renowned sports group logo.

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the owner to design a logo design that worked really 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 illuminated sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
