Mint Hill Logo Design

Every new Mint Hill venture realizes that they are in need of a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly understand the crucial role their logo can take in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo works better than another. A company logo has a critical and long-term impact on the success of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Mint Hill businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require consideration, they can be realized in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type of device, in print, on 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 logo should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bicycle produced for a Mint Hill coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were launching in an old section of town and really wanted to project a vintage atmosphere without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved the two tasks via designing a trademark concept 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 microscopic lense slide as well as germs developed for Mint Hill medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the clinical evaluation of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the only instance I recollect in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 intriguing, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog created for a household fun facility in Mint Hill.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really 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 kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually reflect 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more lively 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 designed was made into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - created for Mint Hill traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead project emotional experiences through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often tell entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey significantly more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mint Hill logo but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Mint Hill logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but the client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his contempt for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral opinions on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family and they adored 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 design.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo comprehend how crucial a logo is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s portion of hurdles, but the biggest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems that in many cases 1 of the things consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Mint Hill, style consist of an arc with lines converging through it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects because it appears that each and every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely include an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo 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 actually love doing dental care logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and inevitably I created a concept that does not have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t overt, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images 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 discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to summarize precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout created for a hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo which conveyed an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of crafting simply a stylized orchid but rather delivered a logo design which implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the main focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive managing. The kernel unites the computer 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 business logo 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 explain anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the business it represents.

With brand names 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 realized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a location to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Mint Hill logo design dsign using an image which captures the attention of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors.

I have crafted quite a lot of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite.
