Allendale Logo Design

Every new Allendale organization realizes that they require a logo, however few entrepreneurs entirely realize the key role their logo will play in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design works far better than another. A logo design has an instant and sustaining effect on the growth of a company, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Allendale companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Allendale coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an older section of the area and wished to visualize a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished both jobs via creating a sign design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and germs created for Allendale medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical examination of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I call to mind in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, yet 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping green frog developed for a household fun center in Allendale.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the usual of the types of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used 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 an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Allendale 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 area because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead project emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo by employing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Allendale logo but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Allendale logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I honestly relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really 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 shape as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man really 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 particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased viewpoints on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really loved 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of difficulties, but the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Allendale publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, but it is the most important part of a published book since it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book store. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever have to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design designed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with benches customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems like that in many instances one of the traits individuals often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was certainly a success.

 Allendale logo style made use of for marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Case includes an archaic typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for musical instruments, that seemed to be antique cases. For this brand design I strove to come up with a logo that had a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be utilized for anything from a website to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from another point in time.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Allendale, design include an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it appears 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 fields when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos 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 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities staggered in height to represent a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the objective 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 illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that carried a feeling of ease and class for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of making simply a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their customers.

Logo layout for a software program developer the design attributes and also famous aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive operations. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software program and 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 point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the significance behind a company logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

A logo layout featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their previously owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Allendale logo design dsign utilizing an illustration that captures the interest of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.
Logo layout MQ ranches, this logo style has actually an area included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t really designed for an Allendale regional farm it was in reality devised for a commodities broker, and this brand was one of a handful of which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was to create a graphic that projects assurance, financial success, and wealth.

I have designed dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a logo design which worked extremely 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 neon signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
