Holden Logo Design

Each and every new Holden business knows they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly recognize the pivotal role their organization logo can perform in their success, or exactly why one logo works more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and long term effect on the prosperity of a company, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Holden businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require consideration, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 unique, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were launching in an older section of the town and wanted to project a nostalgic vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and germs created for Holden medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which works with the clinical assessment of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the only instance I recall where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, however it does it in a fashion 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 enhancer to the name that makes it more appealing, more interest grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a family fun center in Holden.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten 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 feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an atmosphere 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 much more enthusiastic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed 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 hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - developed for Holden traveling professional 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 fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something much 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Holden logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Holden logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in 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 concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but the customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his aversion for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased assessments on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole 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 include 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 design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how important a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, but the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works 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 in the background, layout for Holden publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems like that in many instances one of the aspects people tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Holden, layout include an arc with lines converging through it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it appears that every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness 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 care profession.

I really love doing dental logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised 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 logo that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to describe precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair layout workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo which communicated a spirit of serenity and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is in most cases the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Holden logo design dsign utilizing an image which captures the interest of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
