Nixa Logo Design

Each and every new Nixa venture knows they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly realize the essential role their logo design can perform in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo works far better than another. A company logo has a critical and long term influence on the growth of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Nixa businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand contemplation, they can be comprehended in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will be legible and equally emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Nixa coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening in an older part of the city and hoped to visualize a vintage atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved the two tasks via creating a business logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as germs created for Nixa clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the laboratory examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is really the only instance I remember where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more interesting, more focus grabbing and more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable facility in Nixa.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dentists, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Nixa traveling 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 pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo by employing 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Nixa logo design but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however my client, even though he loved 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”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get objective judgements on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they really liked the concept and were able to persuade 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design realize how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s share of hurdles, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, layout for Nixa book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most vital part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the first thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

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

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems like that in many cases one of the traits people usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Nixa logo style made use of for advertising and marketing and also a label style for Vintage Case includes an old-fashioned font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Nixa, layout include an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects considering that it seems that every single dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo but 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 industry.

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

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

William McNally logo designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for a family unit with in the style.

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 folks in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to describe precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which carried a sense of serenity and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which did not go the obvious direction of creating just a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is frequently the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the emphasis on the perception that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection in between the software and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it represented something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the company it represents.

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly recognized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a location to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Nixa logo design dsign with an illustration that captures the interest of vehicles and sends an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph 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 serene habitat.

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a logo which worked extremely 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 illuminated sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
