Garner, North Carolina Logo Design

Virtually every new Garner business knows they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners entirely grasp the vital role their company logo can perform in their financial success, or why one logo design works far better than another. A logo design has an immediate and lasting impact on the success of a business, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of a business.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Garner, North Carolina companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.

  2. Scalability: from labels to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos which function on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Garner, North Carolina coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an older part of the town and wished to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by designing a logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and germs developed for Garner, North Carolina clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the causes and effects of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Normally I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, but it does it in a fashion that integrates 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 enhancement to the brand that makes it more captivating, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family members enjoyable facility in Garner, North Carolina.

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 usual of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 name itself to give the logo a more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for 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 fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - made for Garner, North Carolina travel 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 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 instead project emotional experiences through the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes share entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be revealed with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo by making use of 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Garner 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.

 Garner logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man genuinely disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family did not share his scorn for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t even know so as to get unbiased opinions on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo understand how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, but the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, yet it is the most critical part of a published book due to the fact that it is usually the first thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems that in many occurrences one of the things individuals often tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a feeling of air travel and it was certainly a winner.

 Garner logo style made use of for marketing and also a tag design for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned typeface style.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Garner, North Carolina, layout consist of an arc with lines converging through it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

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

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image 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 dental industry.

I actually love doing dental care logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics delivered such an opportunity and ultimately 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 suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters startled in height to represent a family with in the layout.

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 devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly 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 illustrate precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo design developed for a hair layout studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that carried a feeling of relaxation and elegance for their new hair salon. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious course of crafting just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is oftentimes the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the main focus on the feeling that they wanted to transmit to their clients.

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and hard drive managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection 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 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. However, it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly understood the market was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a location to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Garner logo dsign utilizing an image which pulls in the attention of traffic and sends an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages 45 miles per hour I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

Fortunately, in this case, I hit a bullseye with the very first shot.

I have designed dozens of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and 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 absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking in which I worked directly with the owner to design a logo design 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 signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
