Steubenville Logo Design

Every new Steubenville company understands that they are in need of a logo, but few entrepreneurs thoroughly realize the essential role their business logo can make in their financial success, or why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A logo design has an instant and lasting effect on the prosperity of a company, select the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a business. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Steubenville businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t demand consideration, they can be understood in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at any 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 enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be ageless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Steubenville coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were launching in an old part of the city and hoped to visualize an old-fashioned tone without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I accomplished the two tasks by designing a logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria developed for Steubenville clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which researches the root causes and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that works with the laboratory assessment of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, however 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 name that makes it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo style with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a family members enjoyable center in Steubenville.

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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the sorts of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t really resonate an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo 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 provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept 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 came up with was transformed into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - developed for Steubenville 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather convey emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something the same to this logo design by utilizing 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Steubenville logo but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Steubenville logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless design 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 shape as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I urge all of them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the benefit of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about 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 preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their business logo recognize how crucial a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the final result. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of challenges, however the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, however it is the most vital part of a printed book considering that it is in most cases the first thing a person sees in the book store. For a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever have to promote their product and get their logo design in front of the people that buy actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it looks like that in many cases one of the traits people tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest startup commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their organization logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a feeling of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Steubenville, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo projects due to the fact that it appears that every single dental professional features a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental practitioners do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated 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 dental care industry.

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

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

William McNally logo created for a family members nonprofit, the logo design includes 4 characters staggered in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals 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 discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a unique opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo design developed for a hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo which carried a spirit of tranquility and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that didn’t go the obvious course of designing merely a stylized orchid but alternatively created a business logo which suggested 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 along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is in most cases the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a connection 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 number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism supporting a logo is equally as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of interests, a place to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts.
