Missouri Logo Design

Each and every new Missouri  venture knows they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners fully are aware of the vital role their logo design can take in their financial success, or why one logo design functions better than another. A logo has a critical and sustaining impact on the prosperity of a company, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Missouri companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will be legible and just as emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any sort 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 stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Missouri coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an old section of the community and wished to visualize a nostalgic tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved the two tasks by designing a business logo concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and bacteria created for Missouri clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that deals with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, but it does it in a way 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog created for a household fun center in Missouri.

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 kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental offices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment 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 title itself to give the logo a much more lively 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 utilized for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Missouri traveling digital 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 sector due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead convey emotional experiences through the photos 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 quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something very similar 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  Missouri  logo design but also to show the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

Missouri logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I really enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his aversion for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased assessments on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really liked the design 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo design realize how essential a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of hurdles, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Missouri 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 vital part of a published book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it looks like that in many cases one of the aspects consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was certainly a victory.

Missouri logo layout used for marketing as well as a label design for Vintage Case features an old-fashioned typeface layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in brand new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be antique cases. For this custom logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid old style feel to it and could be utilized for everything from a website to an insignia on brand new cases that appeared like they were from another generation.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Missouri, design include an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that virtually every dentist 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 business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s 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 dental care profession.

I actually love doing dental care logo designs 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 approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and subsequently 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. 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 overly literal pertaining 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 institution wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize precisely how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design developed for a hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that projected a sense of peace and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious path of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively designed a logo design which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is frequently the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the attention on the feeling that they wanted to project to their clients.

Logo design for a software developer the layout attributes and legendary element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo is just as important as how it serves the business 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 lovers the owners of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a spot to sell their pre-owned equipment to other sports enthusiasts.

I designed their Missouri business logo design along with a graphic which garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Logo style MQ farms, this logo design has actually a field incorporated right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms custom logo design wasn’t really designed for an Missouri  farm it was really devised for an investments broker, and this company was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was actually to develop a graphic that projected esteem, financial success, and prosperity.

Good in that it offers a designer the flexibility to delve into any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye without recognizing where exactly the target is. Thankfully, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the first try.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the proprietor to produce a logo which worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
