Piqua Logo Design

Nearly every new Piqua organization knows they require a logo, yet few new business owners fully recognize the vital role their logo design will perform in their success, or precisely why one logo performs better than another. A logo design has an instant and long term effect on the financial success of a business, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Piqua businesses succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand consideration, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at every scale.
  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 business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from today.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Piqua coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were launching in an old section of town and wanted to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by designing a business logo design that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and also germs created for Piqua medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the root causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the laboratory examination of samplings of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is the sole instance I recollect where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a logo design.

Generally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves quite literally, yet 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 name that helps make it more appealing, more attention grabbing and more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog designed for a family enjoyable facility in Piqua.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 norm of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, 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 name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring does not really 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a more dynamic high energy impression.

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

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - designed for Piqua traveling digital 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 pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most professional photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot 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 similar to this logo design by using 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Piqua logo but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Piqua logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design jobs that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however my client, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this particular breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get objective point of views on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they loved the concept and were able to persuade 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire an expert to create their business logo realize how vital a logo design is for their company so they are way more invested in the final result. Every logo job possesses it’s portion of challenges, but the largest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions 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.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, layout for Piqua book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most crucial part of a printed book due to the fact that it is often the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity they will likely ever have to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy 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 design designed for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has two letter A's with benches customized to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems like that in many cases one of the traits consumers tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of flight and it was surely a success.

 Piqua logo style used for advertising and marketing and a label style for Vintage Situation includes an antiquated typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo created for an orthodontist in Piqua, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to imply steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it seems that every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if restaurants approached their advertising in the exact same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would 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 a likeness of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care industry.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design developed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his community. The majority of 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 with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to describe precisely how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style developed for a hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a logo that carried a sense of relaxation and class for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious direction of crafting simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo design that implied a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is more often than not the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead placed the main focus on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Logo layout for a software developer the design features and renowned component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the business 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 meaning supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves the business it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their used products to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Piqua business logo dsign along with an illustration that seizes the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

The MQ farms emblem concept wasn’t really developed for an Piqua regional farm it was actually created for an investments broker, and this logo was one of several which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Logo created for using a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate manuscript typeface that is similar to a well-known sporting activities team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have designed loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake pastry 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 business owner to develop a business logo which worked extremely 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 illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
