Mississippi Logo Design

Every new Mississippi  company understands that they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly are aware of the vital role their logo will play in their financial success, or why one business logo performs far better than another. A company logo has a critical and long-term influence on the success of a business, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier 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 situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 features in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand deliberation, they can be realized in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be ageless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Mississippi coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an old part of the community and wanted to visualize a retro tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by means of creating a logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and germs created for Mississippi medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that analyzes the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, but 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog developed for a household fun center in Mississippi.

Cool Springs | 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 types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, 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 title of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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, in the end 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 atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - designed 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 fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often 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 lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mississippi  logo but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 letter A but my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective opinions on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they adored the design and were able to reason with 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo understand how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of obstacles, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, but it really is the most critical part of a published book since it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever get to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

This three color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the things people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a good sense of air travel and it was surely a success.

Mississippi logo style used for advertising and marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Situation includes an archaic font style design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand-new cases for music instruments, which appeared to be vintage cases. For this custom logo design I strove to come up with a logo that had a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be utilized for everything from a web site to a label on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different generation.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Mississippi, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that every single dentist involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo 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 really love doing dental care logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a concept 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 concept. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. Many 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 about 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 business or organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to explain specifically how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission 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 immediately understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design that communicated a feeling of ease and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious path of designing merely a stylized orchid but instead created a logo design that suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is generally the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the importance on the emotion that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the enterprise it stands for.

Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked directly with the owner to produce a logo that worked very well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
