Painesville Logo Design

Virtually every new Painesville organization understands that they are in need of a logo, but few new business owners thoroughly are aware of the vital role their business logo will make in their becoming successful, or precisely why one logo functions better than another. A business logo has a critical and sustaining influence on the prosperity of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be a barrier and a hindrance for the life of an organization. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Painesville businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will remain legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any 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 company logo must be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Painesville coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were actually opening up in an old section of the city and wanted to project an old-fashioned feel without appearing as boring or low energy. I accomplished both of these tasks via designing a trademark design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria designed for Painesville medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which studies the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of medicine that works with the laboratory assessment of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

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

Generally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a jumping green frog created for a family members fun center in Painesville.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

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

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a more lively high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for marketing and advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - made for Painesville traveling digital 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but instead reveal emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they often convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo design by using 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Painesville logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Painesville logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I truly relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however 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, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective assessments on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they loved the concept and were able to reason with 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo comprehend how vital a logo is for their organization so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo design job possesses it’s share of challenges, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Painesville book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender slice of real estate to work with, yet it is the most critical part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the primary thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

Air LA logo developed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches modified to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it looks like that in many cases one of the traits folks tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest fledgling commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of flight and it was surely a success.

 Painesville logo style utilized for advertising and marketing and a label design for Vintage Situation features an archaic typeface layout.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Painesville, design include 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 logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that almost every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to business marketing, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 enjoy doing dentist logos simply 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 clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and eventually I created a design that does not 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was apparent was the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a household not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters staggered in height to represent a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy 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 company or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The objective of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo to illustrate how people should think or feel they don’t understand the objective of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo design that projected a sense of peace and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious path of designing merely a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is generally the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their clients.

Logo design for a software developer the layout attributes and famous element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a connection in between the software and hardware.

The business 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 spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the 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 represents.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the founders of On the Fly recognized the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a place to sell their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Painesville logo dsign along with an image which captures the interest of vehicles and projects an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.
Logo design MQ farms, this logo layout has actually a field included right into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo concept wasn’t actually composed for an Painesville area farm it was in reality devised for a commodities broker, and this logo design was one of multiple which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Logo made for making use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is similar to a famous sporting activities group logo design.

I have crafted dozens of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project in which I worked directly with the business owner to create a logo design that worked very 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 neon signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
