Missouri Logo Design

Every new Missouri organization understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners fully realize the vital role their logo design will play in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo functions far better than another. A logo has an instant and long-term effect on the success of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a business.

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

  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at any scale.
  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 company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo should be ageless and should feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.
Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Missouri, Missouri coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an older section of town and wished to cast a nostalgic tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks by means of creating a company logo concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as bacteria created for Missouri, Missouri clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which analyzes the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory assessment of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, however it does it in a fashion 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 name that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping green frog designed for a family members fun center in Missouri, Missouri.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, most likely because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a some springs into the design 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 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 provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy feeling.

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

photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Missouri, Missouri 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead reveal emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they often convey whole 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 that can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something similar to this logo by making use of 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Missouri logo design but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Missouri logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to share it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get impartial point of views on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their business logo recognize how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the end result. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, but the most significant challenge is identifying 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 client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Missouri, Missouri publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most vital part of a published book since it is often the very first thing a person views in the bookstore. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever get to spotlight their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems that in many cases one of the aspects folks usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a sense of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

 Missouri logo design made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a label layout for Vintage Instance includes an old-fashioned font style style.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it seems that almost every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 really love doing dental logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area 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 does not have a single 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 evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures 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 found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to describe exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo that carried a feeling of simplicity and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious path of designing just a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is generally the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, 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 behaves as a connection in 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 number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the significance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to sell their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Missouri logo design dsign with an illustration which grabs the interest of traffic and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I knew 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.

The MQ farms brand idea wasn’t actually composed for an Missouri, Missouri area farm it was in reality designed for a commodities broker, and this logo was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Good in that it grants a designer the flexibility to delve into 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 particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the first go.

Logo design designed for the use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript font that is similar to a renowned sports group logo.

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked closely with the business owner to develop a logo which 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 illuminated signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
