Plymouth Logo Design

Each and every new Plymouth company understands that they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly are aware of the vital role their company logo will play in their financial success, or why one business logo works better than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term effect on the prosperity of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Plymouth companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require deliberation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at any 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 logo must be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Plymouth coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening up in an older part of the city and wanted to visualize a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both jobs by creating a company logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as germs designed for Plymouth clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which works with the clinical assessment of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents quite 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a household enjoyable facility in Plymouth.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 sorts of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

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

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for advertising. 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 fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Plymouth traveling 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 think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead project emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by employing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Plymouth logo design but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Plymouth logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get impartial point of views on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really loved the concept 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 alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo design understand how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design project possesses it’s portion of difficulties, but the largest 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 providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Plymouth publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most vital part of a printed book considering that it is often the very first thing a person sees in the book shop. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever have to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems that in many cases 1 of the aspects individuals tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them.

 Plymouth logo style used for advertising and a tag style for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Plymouth, layout include an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs considering that it seems that every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 dental industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately 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 made for a household not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for 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 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 pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal about 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 organization wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain specifically how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo design developed for a hair design studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo that communicated an atmosphere of tranquility and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious route of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather designed a business logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is generally the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

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

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to sell their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Plymouth logo design dsign along with an image that captures the attention of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really produced for an Plymouth regional farm it was in reality developed for a commodities broker, and this particular business logo was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

I have created dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite.
