Oklahoma Logo Design

Each and every new Oklahoma  venture knows they require a logo, yet few entrepreneurs fully comprehend the vital role their business logo can perform in their financial success, or precisely why one logo design functions more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and sustaining impact on the growth of a company, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a business.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Oklahoma companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t demand consideration, they can be comprehended in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will be legible and just as emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Oklahoma coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually launching in an older section of the area and wanted to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks by means of creating a custom logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide as well as germs created for Oklahoma medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I recall in which I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the name that helps make it more captivating, more attention grabbing and even more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a household enjoyable center in Oklahoma.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 usual of the types of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a couple of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an atmosphere of fun does it. My thought process on this logo design 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 better enthusiastic high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - made for Oklahoma traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but instead reveal emotional experiences by means of the pictures they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using 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 often have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo by using the positive space in the design to suggest 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  Oklahoma  logo design but also to reveal the depth to her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

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

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design jobs that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A however the client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the value of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they really liked 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo realize how vital a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo project has it’s portion of obstacles, however the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Oklahoma publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most critical part of a printed book because it is usually the initial thing a person sees in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that buy actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo made for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems that in many occurrences one of the things folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was surely a winner.

Oklahoma logo design utilized for marketing and a label style for Vintage Case features an old font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case specialized in brand-new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be much older cases.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Oklahoma, design include an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that each and every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 profession.

I actually really love doing dentistry logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo developed for a family nonprofit, the logo features 4 characters surprised in height to represent a family unit 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 depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. 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 very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to summarize how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo design produced for a hair style workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a business logo which related an atmosphere of contentment and elegance for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious course of making simply a stylized orchid but instead created a logo which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a company logo is usually the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the main focus on the perception that they wanted to transmit to their customers.

Logo style for a software designer the design features as well as legendary component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and drive managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge between the software and hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone with regards to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the organization it stands for.

I designed their Oklahoma business logo design with a graphic that seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Logo style MQ farms, this logo layout has an area included into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo design wasn’t actually created for an Oklahoma  farm it was really created for an investments broker, and this logo was one of multiple which fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

Good in that it offers a designer the liberty to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where exactly the target is. Luckily, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the 1st try.

Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked closely with the proprietor to create a business logo which worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the lighted signage which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
