North Canton Logo Design

Virtually every new North Canton company realizes that they require a logo, however few new business owners entirely realize the crucial role their organization logo can play in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo design performs better than another. A company logo has an instant and sustaining influence on the financial success of a business, choose the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help North Canton businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be realized in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a North Canton coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were opening in an older section of town and wished to cast a vintage feel without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by creating a trademark design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and bacteria developed for North Canton clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the triggers and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that deals with the clinical assessment of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design 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 enhancer to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog created for a family members fun facility in North Canton.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 usual of the kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t 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 name itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they used for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for North Canton travel 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the photos they record. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by making use of 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  North Canton logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 North Canton logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I honestly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however the customer 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 the customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial point of views on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really loved the design and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to incorporate every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their business logo realize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of obstacles, however the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for North Canton book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most important part of a printed book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever get to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it seems that in many instances one of the traits consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller startup commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a spirit of flight and it was certainly a success.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in North Canton, design consist of an arc with lines converging with it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects because it seems that every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be performed 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 dentistry logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action 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 overt, they are still implied in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in elevation 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 representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo which related a sense of simplicity and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious path of designing just a stylized orchid but instead delivered a company logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the emphasis on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their customers.

The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

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

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly knew the market was ready for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell their used items to other sports enthusiasts. I created their North Canton logo dsign using an image that pulls in the attention of vehicles and projects an image that invokes the passion of the outdoors.
