Maple Grove Logo Design

Every new Maple Grove company knows they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs entirely realize the pivotal role their logo design can take in their financial success, or why one logo design performs better than another. A company logo has a critical and lasting effect on the growth of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Maple Grove businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand contemplation, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Maple Grove coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an older section of the area and wished to project a nostalgic tone without coming across as boring or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by means of creating a company logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and bacteria created for Maple Grove medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the clinical evaluation of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Normally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, yet it does it in a fashion that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that helps make it more captivating, more focus grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping green frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Maple Grove.

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 that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dentists, 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 clear choice would have been to include a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 give the logo a more enthusiastic high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for marketing and advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Maple Grove traveling 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 area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of the majority of 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 resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by making use of the positive space in the design to say 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  Maple Grove logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Maple Grove logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly savor 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 idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific type 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 folks that they don’t even know so as to get objective opinions on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how crucial a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of hurdles, however 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 giving the client the image they see for themselves.

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most necessary part of a printed book due to the fact that it is usually the primary thing a person views in the bookstore.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it looks like that in many instances one of the things folks usually tend to remember 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 name lent itself well to conferring a feeling of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Maple Grove, design consist of an arc with lines converging through it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most challenging logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos 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 understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth related 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 industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a layout 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 concept. 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 developed for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities staggered in elevation to represent a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Many 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 far too literal with regards 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 company or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to explain exactly how people 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 fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo style produced for a hair style studio including 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 conveyed a sense of calmness and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious direction of crafting just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their customers.

The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.
