Hamtramck Logo Design

Nearly every new Hamtramck organization understands that they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs thoroughly grasp the pivotal role their company logo will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design functions more effectively than another. A logo has a critical and long-term impact on the prosperity of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Hamtramck businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require scrutiny, they can be realized in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will continue to be legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort of device, in print, on 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 company logo should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Hamtramck coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an old part of town and wished to cast a nostalgic vibe without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by developing a business logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and germs made for Hamtramck clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Typically I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents very 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 brand that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping green frog developed for a household enjoyable center in Hamtramck.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve done 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 actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really reflect 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a better lively high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Hamtramck travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something the same to this logo design 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Hamtramck logo design but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Hamtramck logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design projects that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project 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 customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased opinions on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they adored 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo realize how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo job has it’s share of difficulties, but the largest obstacle is finding 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 identity they see for themselves.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Hamtramck, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that virtually every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration 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 dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I actually love doing dentistry logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that doesn’t 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 design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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 love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy 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 explain precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a hair design 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 needed a logo which projected a feeling of tranquility and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious route of designing simply a stylized orchid but rather delivered a company logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is generally the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the attention on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

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 connection between the software and 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 spell out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.
