Duncan Logo Design

Virtually every new Duncan company understands that they need a logo, however few entrepreneurs entirely comprehend the pivotal role their logo design will take in their success, or precisely why one business logo functions far better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the growth of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a business. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Duncan companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 features in common.

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Duncan coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening in an older section of the area and really wanted to visualize a retro atmosphere without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved the two jobs via developing a logo concept that incorporates 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 layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Duncan clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the clinical assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the sole instance I recall where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents very 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 explanation of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a family enjoyable facility in Duncan.

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 types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location 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 much more dynamic high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Duncan traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather reveal emotional journeys through the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they often convey entire stories using their photography.

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

 Duncan logo style with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A however the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately the rest of his family did not share his contempt for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members 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 include 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 concept.

Custom logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their business logo understand how crucial a logo is for their organization so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design project has it’s share of difficulties, however the most significant challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Duncan, layout consist of an arc with lines converging with it to imply steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo design jobs due to the fact that it appears that every single dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company marketing, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo 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 care profession.

I really love doing dentist business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain 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 design that doesn’t have a solitary smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the design. When I turned this particular design over to the customer the only smile that was obvious was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in height to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining 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 institution hopes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize precisely how people ought to 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 failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the opportunity to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a hair design workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo which projected an atmosphere of peace and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of creating simply a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a business logo that implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is frequently the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the attention on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their clients.

The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that acts as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The business logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to explain anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the owner of the company and in quite a few cases the significance supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

I created their Duncan logo design dsign with an image that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors.
