Port Chester Logo Design

Virtually every new Port Chester company realizes that they require a logo, however few entrepreneurs entirely understand the vital role their business logo will take in their financial success, or why one logo works better than another. A business logo has an instant and long-term impact on the growth of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Port Chester businesses succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require scrutiny, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo should be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bicycle developed for a Port Chester coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening up in an older part of town and really wanted to project a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished each of the tasks via creating a sign design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and germs designed for Port Chester medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare that deals with the laboratory assessment of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the only instance I call to mind in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Usually I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves fairly 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and more meaningful.

logo style with a leaping green frog designed for a family members enjoyable center in Port Chester.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

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 additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the 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 really resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this 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 title itself to provide the logo a more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Port Chester traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a 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 field because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead reveal emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they frequently convey whole stories through 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 which can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something very similar to this logo by making use of 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  Port Chester logo but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Port Chester logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design projects that I take on I honestly 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 silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his contempt for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get objective assessments on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they really liked the concept and were able to persuade 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo realize how vital a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of obstacles, however the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Port Chester book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, however it is the most crucial part of a published book because it is often the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it looks like that in many occurrences 1 of the things people tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Port Chester, layout consist of an arc with lines converging with it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs considering that it seems that each and 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 professions when it comes to small 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 something they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I really enjoy doing dental business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design that does not have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still implied in the concept. 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 designed for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent 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 brand identity design that would be representative 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 pictures 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 found that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate specifically how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that explains itself won’t have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced for a hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which projected a spirit of serenity and class for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious path of crafting simply a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is generally the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive operations. The kernel connects the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a connection in between the software 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 pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the meaning supporting a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly understood the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a spot to sell off their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Port Chester logo dsign utilizing an image which pulls in the interest of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and relaxed habitat.

I have crafted dozens of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked closely with the business owner to create a business logo that worked very 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 lighted sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
