Rotterdam Logo Design

Each and every new Rotterdam company realizes that they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs entirely grasp the crucial role their company logo will play in their success, or why one business logo functions better than another. A business logo has an instant and long term effect on the growth of a business, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Rotterdam businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t demand deliberation, they can be realized in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Rotterdam coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening in an old part of town and really wanted to cast a vintage atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks via designing a sign design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs made for Rotterdam medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that makes it more intriguing, more focus grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog created for a family members enjoyable facility in Rotterdam.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to integrate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not 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 much more enthusiastic high energy feeling.

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. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Rotterdam 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 fairly niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they often share entire 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 often have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo design 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Rotterdam logo design but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Rotterdam logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I truly enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man 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 aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge all of 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 neutral judgements on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they adored the design and were able to reason with 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo design realize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more vested in the result. Every logo job has it’s portion of difficulties, but the most significant obstacle 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 giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, design for Rotterdam book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin slice of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most vital part of a published book given that it is in most cases the primary thing a person views in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will ever have to promote their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy 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 created for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has two letter A's with benches modified to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it seems like that in many instances one of the items consumers often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young new venture commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a feeling of flight and it was definitely a success.

 Rotterdam logo style made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a label design for Vintage Situation includes an old font style.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Rotterdam, layout consist of an arc with lines converging via it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs because it seems that almost every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company 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 really love doing dentist logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain area 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 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 concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a family nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents 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 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 institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate specifically how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a company logo which projected an atmosphere of serenity and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious direction of crafting just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is oftentimes the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the importance on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk managing. 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 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 situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the owner of the business and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell off their used goods to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Rotterdam business logo dsign utilizing an illustration that pulls in the attention 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 knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Logo developed for the use of a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant script font style that is similar to a popular sports team logo.

I’ve crafted quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bake 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 closely with the proprietor to design a business logo that worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
