Parma Logo Design

Nearly every new Parma venture knows they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly grasp the vital role their logo design will play in their success, or the reason that one logo design works better than another. A logo design has a critical and long term impact on the financial success of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Parma businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require contemplation, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function 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 enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be lasting and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.

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

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an older section of the area and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled the two jobs by means of developing a custom logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria created for Parma medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which researches the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of healthcare which deals with the clinical examination of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the sole instance I call to mind where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Usually I attempt not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves quite literally, however it does it in a way that integrates the slide as part of the name so it doesn’t serve so much as a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog made for a household fun facility in Parma.

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 that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect an atmosphere 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy mood.

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

photography logo design including a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - created for Parma traveling 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather communicate emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of almost all professional photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something the same 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Parma logo design but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Parma logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design projects that I take on I really take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design 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 concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however my client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully 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 customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unbiased viewpoints on the value of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family and they really liked 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 went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo comprehend how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo project has it’s allotment of obstacles, however the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Parma publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most necessary part of a printed book since it is often the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever have to spotlight their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go but it looks like that in many occurrences one of the aspects individuals usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a sense of flight and it was surely a victory.

 Parma logo style made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a label design for Vintage Case includes an antiquated typeface style.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Parma, style consist of an arc with lines converging with it to suggest metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging logo design jobs considering that it appears that each and every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth related 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 dental profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics provided 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 implied 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 design created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo features 4 characters surprised in elevation 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 brand identity design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the families in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo style developed for a hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo design which related a spirit of simplicity and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious direction of crafting simply a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is more often than not the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the focus on the perception that they wanted to project to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk operations. The kernel attaches the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that serves as a connection between the software and 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 business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it meant something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the meaning behind a logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to market their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Parma business logo dsign with an illustration that garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors.

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant 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.
