Republic, Missouri Logo Design

Virtually every new Republic business person understands that they require a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the pivotal role their organization’s logo can make in their success, or the reason that one logo design performs far better than another. A logo has a critical and lasting effect on the growth of a company, go with the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Republic, Missouri companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require consideration, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are unique, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be timeless and will feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.
Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Republic, Missouri coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually launching in an older section of the city and really wanted to cast a retro vibe without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs via designing a business logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and bacteria created for Republic, Missouri medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that analyzes the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the clinical examination of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Normally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite 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 name that helps make it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping green frog developed for a family enjoyable facility in Republic, Missouri.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment 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 title itself to give the logo a better lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild 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 designed was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - made for Republic, Missouri travel digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead project emotional journeys through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand 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 made an effort to do something the same to this logo design by utilizing 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Republic logo but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Republic logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 form as a stroke in the character A but the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial judgements on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they adored 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to create their logo realize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of difficulties, but the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Republic, Missouri book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most vital part of a printed book considering that it is often the very first thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems that in many cases one of the items folks often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Republic logo layout made use of for marketing and also a label layout for Vintage Instance includes an antiquated font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo created for an orthodontist in Republic, Missouri, design consist of an arc with lines converging via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that almost every dentist features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business 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 explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry industry.

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

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

William McNally logo developed for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters staggered in height to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

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 devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very 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 downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo style created for a hair layout workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which carried a spirit of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious route of making merely a stylized orchid but instead delivered a logo design which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is generally the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive management. 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 bridge 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 couple of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the significance behind a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing 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 used products to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Republic logo dsign along with an image that pulls in the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

Good in that it provides a designer the opportunity to delve into any concept that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Fortunately, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the 1st go.

Logo design created for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant script typeface that is similar to a popular sports group logo design.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked directly with the owner to design a business 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 neon sign which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
