Golden Valley Logo Design

Nearly every new Golden Valley company knows they need a logo, yet few new business owners entirely are aware of the pivotal role their company logo will perform in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo performs more effectively than another. A logo has an instant and long term influence on the success of a business, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Golden Valley companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t demand consideration, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type 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 enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle produced for a Golden Valley coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening up in an older section of the area and wished to visualize a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved the two tasks by means of developing a custom logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria made for Golden Valley medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the root causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the clinical examination of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, yet it does it in a fashion 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

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 usual of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has 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 does not really reflect 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, 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 brainchild and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Golden Valley travel 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 rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Golden Valley logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Golden Valley logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer 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 letter A however the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design 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 even know so as to get neutral point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they loved the concept and were able to persuade 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo realize how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, however the greatest obstacle 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 client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Golden Valley book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, yet it is the most important part of a printed book considering that it is usually the primary thing a person sees in the book shop. For a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever have to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems like that in many instances one of the things consumers often 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 sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a sense of flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Golden Valley logo style used for advertising and also a label layout for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned font style layout.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Golden Valley, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that every dental professional incorporates 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 business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dentists do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

I really enjoy doing dentistry logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design made for a family members nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in height to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which communicated an atmosphere of relaxation and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious direction of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is oftentimes the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts 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 few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the business it stands for.
