Ridgewood Logo Design

Every new Ridgewood organization understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly grasp the crucial role their organization logo can perform in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo works better than another. A logo has a critical and long-term influence on the success of a business, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Ridgewood businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require contemplation, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any type of 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 enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be ageless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Ridgewood coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and cafe were opening up in an older part of the area and wanted to visualize a vintage feel without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks via developing a trademark concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and bacteria created for Ridgewood clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory assessment of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, yet it does it in a way that incorporates 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 interesting, more attention grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping eco-friendly frog developed for a family fun center in Ridgewood.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and integrated him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I did was made 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 trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Ridgewood 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 sector due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences through the images they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all 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 often have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo by employing the positive space in the design to say 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Ridgewood logo design but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Ridgewood logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless project 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 form as a stroke in the character A but my client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get honest opinions on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo realize how essential a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of obstacles, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

The book spine is a cramped slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most important part of a published book because it is ordinarily the very first thing a person sees in the book store.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it looks like that in many instances 1 of the aspects consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of air travel and it was surely a victory.

 Ridgewood logo style made use of for advertising and marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Case features an archaic font style style.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Ridgewood, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that each and every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless 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 dental industry.

I really love doing dental business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular 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 inevitably I created a concept that doesn’t 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 particular concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family members nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in height to represent a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to 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 company or organization wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo to describe precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo that carried a spirit of peace and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious direction of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a business logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the main focus on the perception that they really wanted to project to their customers.

The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection 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 located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it intimated something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.
