Vicksburg, Mississippi Logo Design

Virtually every new Vicksburg venture knows they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs entirely recognize the essential role their organization logo will perform in their becoming successful, or why one logo functions better than another. A company logo has a critical and lasting effect on the success of a company, select the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of a business.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Vicksburg, Mississippi companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Vicksburg, Mississippi coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an old part of the town and hoped to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs by developing a company logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and germs developed for Vicksburg, Mississippi clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that researches the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the sole instance I recollect in which I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, however it does it in a way that incorporates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a household fun center in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 types 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 only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really resonate 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, in the end 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 feel.

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

digital photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - designed for Vicksburg, Mississippi traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they often convey entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something the same to this logo design 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Vicksburg logo design but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Vicksburg logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral viewpoints on the merit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they adored the concept 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo understand how vital a logo is for their organization so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo design job has it’s share of challenges, but the greatest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Vicksburg, Mississippi publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow slice of real estate to work with, yet it is the most important part of a published book since it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

This 3 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 design created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it seems that in many instances 1 of the items people often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Vicksburg logo layout made use of for advertising and also a label style for Vintage Situation features an old typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for music instruments, that appeared to be older cases. For this logo design I tried to come up with a logo that offered a fluid retro feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web site to a label on brand new cases that looked like they were from a different point in time.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Vicksburg, Mississippi, design include an arc with lines intersecting through it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it seems that every dentist 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 small business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo 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 industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a design 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in height to stand for a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that explains itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo that related an atmosphere of peace and class for their new hair studio. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious route of crafting merely a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is oftentimes the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

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 disk operations. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection in between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo design is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a place to sell their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Vicksburg logo design dsign utilizing an illustration that seizes the interest of traffic and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors.

Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to investigate any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s hard to hit a bullseye without realizing where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I hit a bullseye with the very first try.
