Woodbury Logo Design

Every new Woodbury venture knows they need a logo, however few new business owners fully grasp the essential role their company logo will play in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo works more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and long term effect on the growth of a company, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Woodbury companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any 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 represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be lasting and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Woodbury coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an old part of town and really wanted to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both tasks via creating a business logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also germs designed for Woodbury clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory examination of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I attempt not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 brand that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a household fun facility in Woodbury.

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 also a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a handful of springs into the concept 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Woodbury 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 specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional experiences through the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 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 revealed with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo design by utilizing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Woodbury logo design but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Woodbury logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I truly relish and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A but the client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his contempt for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral judgements on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they really liked 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their business logo comprehend how crucial a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of obstacles, however the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Woodbury book publisher

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many instances one of the items people tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a feeling of air travel and it was definitely a winner.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Woodbury, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that virtually every dentist includes 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 advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and eventually I created a concept that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the families in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to describe precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design 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 chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo that related a spirit of serenity and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept that did not go the obvious route of creating just a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo design which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is usually the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The business logo 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 explain anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it brands the company it represents.
