Woodbury, Minnesota Logo Design

Every new Woodbury business realizes that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly recognize the vital role their organization logo can make in their becoming successful, or the reason that one logo design works far better than another. A logo has an instant and long term influence on the success of a business, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a business.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Woodbury, Minnesota coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an older section of the town and wanted to cast a nostalgic tone without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by means of creating a company logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide and also germs made for Woodbury, Minnesota medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the laboratory evaluation of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a family members fun center in Woodbury, Minnesota.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental professionals, 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 title of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really reflect an atmosphere 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Woodbury, Minnesota traveling professional 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 area due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather convey emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole 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 frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something similar to this logo by using 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Woodbury logo design but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Woodbury logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest assessments on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really 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 include every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo recognize how important a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Woodbury, Minnesota book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most vital part of a published book because it is often the very first thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the aspects folks tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a spirit of air travel and it was undoubtedly a victory.

 Woodbury logo style utilized for advertising and also a tag design for Vintage Situation includes an old font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be vintage cases.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs considering that it seems that each and every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 profession.

I really love doing dental logo designs 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 solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design that doesn’t have a single 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 customer the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family with in the design.

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 representative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that 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 tries to use the logo design to illustrate specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design produced for a hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which carried a spirit of peace and connection for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious direction of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is more often than not the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the main focus on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Logo design for a software application designer the style features as well as iconic element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge between the software and 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 offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

A logo design including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the customer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly knew the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to sell their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Woodbury business logo dsign using a graphic that seizes the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo design wasn’t really designed for an Woodbury, Minnesota area farm it was really created for a products broker, and this business logo was one of many which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye without understanding where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo created for using an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant manuscript font style that is reminiscent of a popular sporting activities group logo design.

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked closely with the owner to design a logo design that worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it worked 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 easy to read from over a block away.
