Joplin, Missouri Logo Design

Each and every new Joplin organization understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly realize the vital role their organization’s logo can play in their success, or exactly why one logo design functions better than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting influence on the growth of a business, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of an organization.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Joplin, Missouri businesses prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Joplin, Missouri coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were actually launching in an old section of the town and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic feel without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by designing a sign design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria designed for Joplin, Missouri clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, yet it does it in a fashion 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 captivating, more focus grabbing and more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a household fun center in Joplin, Missouri.

Cool Springz | 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 usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 more enthusiastic high energy feeling.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - made for Joplin, Missouri traveling digital 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 think it is a niche sector because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead communicate emotional journeys by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo design by making use of the positive space in the design to suggest 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  Joplin logo design but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Joplin logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly 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 customer, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his contempt for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get honest point of views on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they loved the concept and were able to reason with him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design understand how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, however the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo design projects because it seems that every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain 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 design but 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 dentistry industry.

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

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

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be overly literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo style developed for a hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo design that related a sense of calmness and class for their new hair studio. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious path of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design that suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

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

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

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment business. 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 passions, a place to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Joplin business logo dsign utilizing a graphic that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors.

Fortunately, in this case, I nailed a bullseye with the 1st shot.

I’ve crafted dozens of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool project where I worked directly with the proprietor to create a logo design that worked very 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 neon signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
