Mississippi Logo Design

Nearly every new Mississippi business professional realizes that they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners fully comprehend the essential role their logo design will perform in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo works better than another. A logo design has an instant and lasting effect on the viability of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a business.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Mississippi  companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand scrutiny, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which 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 unique, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be enduring and will feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an older section of town and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks via creating a trademark design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and bacteria developed for Mississippi, Mississippi clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the clinical assessment of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I try not to be extremely 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 intriguing, more focus grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping green frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Mississippi, Mississippi.

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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business 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 location to go and spring doesn’t 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feeling.

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

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - developed for Mississippi, Mississippi traveling professional 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mississippi 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.

 Mississippi logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however my 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”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial viewpoints on the value of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they really loved the design and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to insert 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.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their business logo realize how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo project possesses it’s share of obstacles, but the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Mississippi, Mississippi publication author

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go nevertheless it seems like that in many cases one of the things people often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of air travel and it was surely a winner.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Mississippi, Mississippi, style consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects because it seems that almost every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s 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 really love doing dental logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a design that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design includes 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 brand identity design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique 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 understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to illustrate specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which communicated an atmosphere of tranquility and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious route of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a business logo that implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

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

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to sell off their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Mississippi business logo dsign using a graphic that seizes the interest of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind 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 commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Luckily, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st go.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the business owner to design a logo design that worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
