Dyker Heights Logo Design

Virtually every new Dyker Heights company understands that they need a logo, but few new business owners fully realize the key role their logo will play in their becoming successful, or precisely why one business logo works better than another. A logo design has an immediate and lasting influence on the success of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Dyker Heights businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand consideration, they can be understood in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  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 stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be enduring and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Dyker Heights coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an older part of the community and wanted to cast a retro vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs via designing a logo design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also germs designed for Dyker Heights medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the triggers and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory evaluation of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 captivating, more interest grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a household fun facility in Dyker Heights.

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 projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental professionals, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really reflect 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy feeling.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I did was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - created for Dyker Heights 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but instead convey emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo composition was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo by using the positive space in the design to voice 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  Dyker Heights logo design but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Dyker Heights logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment 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 shape as a stroke in the character A however my client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get impartial judgements on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they loved 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design comprehend how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are much more vested in the outcome. Every logo job possesses it’s portion of hurdles, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Dyker Heights publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most vital part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the initial thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will ever have to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

Air LA logo design created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with benches changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it seems that in many cases one of the aspects people usually tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

 Dyker Heights logo design used for advertising and marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Case includes an old font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Dyker Heights, design include an arc with lines converging through it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that almost every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo but 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 care profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually 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 concept over to the client the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. Most 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 overly 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that 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 describe precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo that carried an atmosphere of ease and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious path of crafting just a stylized orchid but instead designed a company logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is frequently the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the emphasis on the feeling that they wanted to project to their customers.

Logo style for a software program programmer the layout attributes and famous element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel links the system 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 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 explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning behind a company logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

A logo design including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly knew the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a location to sell their used goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Dyker Heights logo dsign utilizing an image that seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

The MQ farms company logo design wasn’t really composed for an Dyker Heights regional farm it was really designed for an investments broker, and this company was one of several that fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Logo designed for using an indication for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant manuscript font style that is similar to a popular sports group logo design.

I’ve created dozens of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked closely with the proprietor to produce 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 signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
