Old Jamestown Logo Design

Virtually every new Old Jamestown company understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners entirely recognize the essential role their logo will take in their success, or the reason that one logo design works more effectively than another. A logo has a critical and long term influence on the financial success of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Old Jamestown businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand contemplation, they can be realized in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will continue to be legible and just as emotive at any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Old Jamestown coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an old section of the town and wanted to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both of these tasks by means of developing a custom logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide as well as germs created for Old Jamestown medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which works with the laboratory examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as an explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a household fun facility in Old Jamestown.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually reflect 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 provide the logo a more dynamic 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 advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and a tree - created for Old Jamestown traveling professional 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 speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something comparable 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Old Jamestown logo design but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Old Jamestown logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A but the client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get neutral opinions on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really 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 include every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire an expert to design their logo design comprehend how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, however the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, but it is the most critical part of a printed book since it is ordinarily the first thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the best opportunity that they will ever have to advertise their product and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

This three 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 created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with the bars modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it looks like that in many instances 1 of the things folks tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to affording a good sense of air travel and it was certainly a winner.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Old Jamestown, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it seems that every single dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 profession.

I actually love doing dental logos simply 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 course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered 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 obvious, they are still suggested in the concept. 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 design designed for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 personalities startled in elevation to represent a family unit 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 families in his community. 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy 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 describe 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 failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout studio including a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo which conveyed a sense of contentment and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design that didn’t go the obvious path of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

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

The logo design 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 identify anything to anyone pertaining 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 many cases the symbolism behind a logo design is just as important as how it serves the organization it stands for.
