Ocean Springs Logo Design

Each and every new Ocean Springs company understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly realize the vital role their logo design will take in their success, or the reason that one logo design performs far better than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting impact on the growth of a business, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Ocean Springs businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that 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 personal, and they are suitable for the enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Ocean Springs coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an old part of the area and wished to cast an old-fashioned vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both jobs via designing a custom logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria made for Ocean Springs clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I recall where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates 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 helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family fun facility in Ocean Springs.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy impression.

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 think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - designed for Ocean Springs traveling 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 think it is a niche speciality because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead project emotional experiences through the images they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they often tell entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo design by employing 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Ocean Springs logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Ocean Springs logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, but the customer 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 however the customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased opinions on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really liked 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 alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo realize how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo job has it’s portion of obstacles, however the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most essential part of a printed book because it is usually the very first thing a person sees in the book shop.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems that in many cases one of the items people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a good sense of air travel and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Ocean Springs logo style made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Case includes an antiquated font style style.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Ocean Springs, design consist of an arc with lines converging via it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs because it seems that virtually every dentist includes 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 same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo but 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 care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design designed for a household nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo style developed for a hair style studio featuring a manuscript 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 spirit of relaxation and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious path of crafting merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is in most cases the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

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

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated 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 regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the substance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a place to market their previously owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Ocean Springs logo dsign with an image that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors.
