Oklahoma City Logo Design

Each and every new Oklahoma City organization realizes that they are in need of a logo, however few new business owners entirely understand the vital role their organization logo can play in their becoming successful, or exactly why one business logo performs better than another. A business logo has an immediate and sustaining effect on the financial success of a business, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Oklahoma City businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.

  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any sort of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.

  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Oklahoma City coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening in an older part of the city and really wanted to project a vintage vibe without coming across as boring or low energy. I achieved both tasks by means of developing a company logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo layout with a microscope slide as well as germs created for Oklahoma City medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which researches the causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical evaluation of samplings of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic purposes.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is the only instance I recall where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Generally I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves rather literally, but it does it in a fashion 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 brand that helps make it more appealing, more interest grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a household enjoyable facility in Oklahoma City.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and legal professionals but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my brainchild and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they utilized for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was transformed into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - made for Oklahoma City travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality because travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the images they record. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of most professional photographers in that they often tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 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 mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by utilizing 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 City logo but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Oklahoma City logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously enjoy and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however 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 but the customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family did not share his hatred for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with other people that they don’t even know so as to get objective assessments on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they adored the concept 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 choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their logo realize how crucial a logo design is for their organization so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, 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 company and also providing the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo behind-the-scenes, style for Oklahoma City book author

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most essential part of a printed book considering that it is often the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it looks like that in many instances 1 of the aspects consumers tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest new venture commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a sense of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Oklahoma City logo design used for advertising and marketing as well as a tag layout for Vintage Situation includes an antiquated typeface style.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can be one of the most difficult logo jobs due to the fact 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 most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental industry.

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

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

William McNally logo design created for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation reached out to ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the folks in his community. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be overly literal pertaining 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 company or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to explain specifically how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that explains itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style produced for a hair style 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 required a business logo which conveyed a sense of contentment and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of making merely a stylized orchid but rather created a company logo which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and hard drive management. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the 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 intimated something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the symbolism supporting a business logo is just as important as how it serves the company it represents.

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly realized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to sell off their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Oklahoma City business logo dsign using an image which garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five 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.
Logo layout MQ farms, this logo style has actually a field included into the letter Q.

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t really designed for an Oklahoma City regional farm it was really designed for a commodities broker, and this creative logo was one of several that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

I’ve crafted loads of restaurant custom logo designs and establishment 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 neat project in which I worked closely with the owner to develop a logo that worked extremely well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
