West Gulfport Logo Design

Virtually every new West Gulfport organization understands that they require a logo, however few entrepreneurs thoroughly grasp the crucial role their organization logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo functions better than another. A company logo has an instant and lasting impact on the prosperity of a company, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help West Gulfport businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand deliberation, they can be comprehended in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  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 unique, and they are suitable for the organization they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a West Gulfport coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an old part of town and hoped to project a retro vibe without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved the two tasks by creating 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 microscope slide as well as bacteria developed for West Gulfport clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which works with the clinical evaluation of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific 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 name that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a household fun facility in West Gulfport.

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 norm of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for West Gulfport traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they often share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  West Gulfport logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 West Gulfport logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however my client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to talk about it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get objective assessments on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really liked 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo realize how important a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo job has it’s share of difficulties, 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 client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, style for West Gulfport publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, but it is the most important part of a published book since it is usually the first thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever have to publicize their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA logo made for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it seems like that in many instances one of the aspects individuals usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a spirit of flight and it was definitely a winner.

 West Gulfport logo style made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a label design for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned font layout.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in West Gulfport, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs because it appears that every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental practices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s 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 profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a design that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair design workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo that conveyed a sense of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious path of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is usually the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive operations. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge in between the software and 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly recognized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell off their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their West Gulfport business logo dsign along with an image which grabs the attention of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm 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 image of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms brand concept wasn’t actually composed for an West Gulfport regional farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this company logo was one of a handful of which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.
