Farmington, Missouri Logo Design

Virtually every new Farmington business person realizes that they require a logo, however few new business owners entirely grasp the key role their organization’s logo will take in their becoming successful, or why one logo functions more effectively than another. A logo design has a critical and sustaining effect on the success of a business, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a business.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Farmington, Missouri companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand scrutiny, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to movie screens a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are unique, and they are suitable for the company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be ageless and should feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.
Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Farmington, Missouri coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an old section of town and really wanted to cast a vintage feel without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs via developing a business logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs designed for Farmington, Missouri clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory examination of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Generally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, yet 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 enhancer to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a household fun facility in Farmington, 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 usual of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dentists, 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 business 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 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better lively high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - made for Farmington, Missouri travel 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 rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead project emotional journeys by means of the photos they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes convey entire stories through 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 conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Farmington logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Farmington logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in 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 but the client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family didn’t share his contempt for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they loved 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo recognize how important a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of difficulties, but the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most essential part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the opportunity that they will likely ever have to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vibrant, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of space 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 indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it looks like that in many cases 1 of the traits people usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller new venture commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was certainly a winner.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Farmington, Missouri, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo projects considering that it appears that almost every dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

I actually love doing dental care business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design created for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in height to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most 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 very 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 organization hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo design developed for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that related a sense of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious direction of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather created a company logo that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is oftentimes the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the emphasis on the perception that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection between the software and computer 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 explain anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the substance supporting a company logo is equally as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to market their used products to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Farmington logo design dsign along with an image that pulls in the attention of vehicles and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors.

Good in that it gives a designer the opportunity to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Luckily, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the very first shot.

Logo made for making use of an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant script font style that is similar to a well-known sporting activities group logo.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to develop a logo that worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
