Sheepshead Bay Logo Design

Virtually every new Sheepshead Bay organization realizes that they require a logo, however few new business owners fully realize the pivotal role their organization logo can play in their financial success, or the reason that one logo functions more effectively than another. A company logo has an immediate and long term impact on the prosperity of a company, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Sheepshead Bay companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand consideration, they can be realized in just a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort 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 business they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle developed for a Sheepshead Bay coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an old section of the community and wished to project a nostalgic tone without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished both jobs by means of creating a business logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also germs developed for Sheepshead Bay clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the field of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents quite literally, however 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo design with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a family members enjoyable center in Sheepshead Bay.

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 usual of the sorts of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild 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 designed was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - designed for Sheepshead Bay traveling professional 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of most good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo design by utilizing 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 hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Sheepshead Bay logo but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Sheepshead Bay logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the customer, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get objective viewpoints on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members and they really 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design understand how vital a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of difficulties, but the most significant obstacle is finding 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 image they see for themselves.

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most important part of a published book since it is ordinarily the very first thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will ever get to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

Air LA logo design developed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with the bars modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it seems like that in many cases one of the traits individuals often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle air service situated 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 brand lent itself well to conferring a sense of flight and it was certainly a success.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Sheepshead Bay, design include an arc with lines converging via it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most difficult logo projects due to the fact that it seems that every dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 dental industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still implied in the design. When I turned this design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a household not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 characters surprised in height to stand for a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed 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 attempts to use the logo to summarize specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout developed for a hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design which carried an atmosphere of contentment and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious course of crafting simply a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a logo design which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the importance on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

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 and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a company logo is equally as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts.

I’ve created dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite.
