Burnsville, Minnesota Logo Design

Nearly every new Burnsville company realizes that they need a logo, yet few new business owners entirely comprehend the pivotal role their logo can make in their success, or the reason that one business logo functions far better than another. A logo design has an immediate and long term effect on the financial success of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of an organization.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Burnsville, Minnesota companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation 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 require deliberation, they can be comprehended in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from labels to movie screens a scalable logo design will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be enduring and will feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.
Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Burnsville, Minnesota coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were actually launching in an old part of the community and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic vibe without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks by means of designing a logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide as well as germs designed for Burnsville, Minnesota clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that investigates the root causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Usually I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, but it does it in a way that integrates 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 appealing, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping green frog designed for a household fun center in Burnsville, Minnesota.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 provide the logo a better dynamic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Burnsville, Minnesota traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather project emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of 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 much more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Burnsville logo but also to show the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Burnsville logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo design recognize how essential a logo is for their company so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of difficulties, however the largest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Burnsville, Minnesota book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most important part of a printed book because it is usually the initial thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the opportunity they will ever get to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

Air LA logo designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with the bars changed to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects consumers tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a sense of flight and it was certainly a success.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Burnsville, Minnesota, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects due to the fact that it appears that every single dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t 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 really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo developed for a family not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. The majority of 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 pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found 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 offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which related a sense of simplicity and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of creating simply a stylized orchid but instead crafted a company logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a company 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 transmit to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection in between the software and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the symbolism supporting a logo design is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Burnsville logo dsign using an image which garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design that they desired, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without recognizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bakeshops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked closely with the business owner to develop a logo which worked really well and did a fantastic 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.
