Mississippi Logo Design

Each and every new Mississippi business knows they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs fully realize the crucial role their business logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design works far better than another. A logo has an immediate and lasting impact on the financial success of a company, select the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a business.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Mississippi businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be realized in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are unique, and they are suitable for the organization they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Mississippi coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening in an old section of the community and hoped to project a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved both tasks by means of developing a business logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as bacteria designed for Mississippi clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design Project

Pathology is the science that analyzes the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo design with a jumping green frog developed for a family members enjoyable facility in Mississippi.

Cool Springs | Retail Branding Project

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually reflect 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more enthusiastic 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 advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - made for Mississippi travel 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 believe it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys by means of the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mississippi logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Mississippi logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design Project

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really 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 character A but the client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased judgements on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo design understand how important a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, however the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Mississippi publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design Project

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, but it really is the most vital part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the first thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever have to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books. This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of area for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo design developed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with the bars changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design Project

Airlines come and go however it looks like that in many occurrences one of the traits people usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a spirit of flight and it was certainly a victory.

 Mississippi logo style utilized for marketing and also a label style for Vintage Instance features an old-fashioned font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design Project

Vintage case focused in all new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be much older cases. For this logo concept I sought to come up with a logo that provided a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be used for anything from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from another era.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Mississippi, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design Project

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry. I actually love doing dental logos simply 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 delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.
William McNally logo designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters surprised in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design Project

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals 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 found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to project. The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly 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 should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.
Logo design created for a hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design which related a feeling of peace and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which didn’t go the obvious route of creating simply a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is usually the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design Project

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive operations. The kernel links the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software and hardware.

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

A logo style featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to market their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Mississippi logo design design with a graphic which grabs the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion 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 travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this logo layout has actually an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t really created for an Mississippi area farm it was in reality devised for an investments broker, and this particular company logo was one of a handful of that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Good in that it provides a designer the flexibility to explore any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular case, I struck a bullseye with the 1st try.

Logo created for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant script typeface that is evocative a famous sporting activities group logo.

I’ve created dozens of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake pastry 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 directly with the owner to design a business logo which worked very 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 neon signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
