Nebraska Logo Design

Virtually every new Nebraska venture knows they are in need of a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly understand the crucial role their logo design can make in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo works more effectively than another. A business logo has an immediate and long term influence on the financial success of a company, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of an organization.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Nebraska companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will be legible and equally emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any device, in print, on 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 company logo must be lasting and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Nebraska coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an older section of the town and wanted to cast a retro atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both of these jobs by creating a custom logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and also bacteria made for Nebraska medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design Project

Pathology is the science which researches the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly 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 the sole instance I call to mind where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that makes it more appealing, more attention grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a family members enjoyable center in Nebraska.

Cool Springs | Retail Branding Project

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which 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 clear choice would have been to include a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they utilized for marketing and advertising. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I created was transformed 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 mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - made for Nebraska traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche area due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they often share whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something comparable to this logo by using 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Nebraska logo but also to show the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Nebraska logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design Project

The majority of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project 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 letter A however the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members did not share his scorn for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced assessments on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they loved the concept 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 strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their logo recognize how crucial a logo is for their business so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s portion of challenges, but the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, layout for Nebraska publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design Project

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most vital part of a printed book given that it is often the primary thing a person views in the bookstore. Regarding a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for actual books. This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design Project

Airlines come and go yet it seems that in many instances 1 of the things individuals usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a sense of airline flight and it was certainly a victory.

 Nebraska logo style utilized for marketing and a label design for Vintage Situation includes an old font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design Project

Vintage case specialized in brand new cases for musical instruments, which seemed to be antique cases. For this custom logo design I strove to come up with a logo that possessed a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could easily be used for every thing from a web page to an insignia on brand new cases that seemed like they were from a different generation.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Nebraska, style include an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design Project

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects because it appears that virtually every dentist 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 company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession. I actually really love doing dentist business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on. Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a layout 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 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 developed for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 4 personalities staggered in height to stand for a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design Project

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants 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 tacky 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 illustrate specifically how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.
Logo design created for a hair design studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a business logo that conveyed an atmosphere of simplicity and connection for their new hair studio. I created a design that did not go the obvious path of creating merely a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a business logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Logo style for a software application developer the style attributes as well as renowned element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design Project

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive managing. The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs 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 situated a couple of miles from the 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. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the company it represents.

A logo layout featuring a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly towards the viewer.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their used products to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Nebraska logo design using an image that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor 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 picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo design MQ ranches, this logo layout has actually a field included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t actually produced for an Nebraska area farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this particular business logo was one of many that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The goal was to develop a graphic that projects self-assurance, success, and luxury.

 Nebraska Logo design for a not-for-profit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo style attribute for ostensibly encountering arrow and also the arrowheads imply that it is a ruby form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design that they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it grants 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 knowing where the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I hit a bullseye with the first go.

Logo design developed for making use of an indicator for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate script font style that is evocative a popular sporting activities group logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeshops 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 directly with the business owner to produce a logo which worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
