Grants Pass, Oregon Logo Design

Every new Grants Pass venture understands that they are in need of a logo, yet few entrepreneurs entirely understand the pivotal role their organization logo will play in their success, or the reason that one logo design works more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term impact on the success of a business, go with the right one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the life of a company.

The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Grants Pass, Oregon companies prosper, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t require contemplation, they can be understood in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo will remain legible and just as emotive at every scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any type of device, in print, on 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 must be timeless and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bike created for a Grants Pass, Oregon coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an older section of the city and wanted to visualize a nostalgic vibe without appearing as boring or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs by means of developing a logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Grants Pass, Oregon clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the clinical examination of samples of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I call to mind where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Typically I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however 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 enhancer to the brand that makes it more interesting, more interest grabbing and more meaningful.

logo design with a leaping environment-friendly frog designed for a family fun center in Grants Pass, Oregon.

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

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring doesn’t really reflect an environment 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feeling.

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

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a trail, a stream, and also a tree - developed for Grants Pass, Oregon traveling professional 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 rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche area because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional experiences by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes convey whole stories through 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 that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Grants Pass logo design but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Grants Pass logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design projects that I take on I honestly savor and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I certainly felt good about, but the client didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull form as a stroke in the character A but my customer, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get objective point of views on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his family members and they adored 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 incorporate 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.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their logo design understand how vital a logo design is for their business so they are way more invested in the end result. Every logo job possesses it’s share of difficulties, however the largest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, layout for Grants Pass, Oregon publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most crucial part of a published book since it is usually the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. Regarding a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart but it seems like that in many cases 1 of the traits individuals usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle airline based in LA and although I’m not sure it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a feeling of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Grants Pass logo layout used for advertising as well as a label design for Vintage Instance features an antiquated typeface style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Grants Pass, Oregon, layout consist of an arc with lines intersecting with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most difficult logo projects because it seems that each and every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related 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 profession.

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

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and ultimately I created a layout 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 design. 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 developed for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

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

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to describe 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 failed, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo layout developed for a hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo which conveyed a sense of calmness and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious direction of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo that suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird floating over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is more often than not the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the emphasis on the feeling that they wanted to project to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and disk operations. 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 in between the software program and hardware.

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

A logo design including a fisherman in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the audience.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that operates as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of interests, a location to sell off their pre-owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Grants Pass logo dsign along with a graphic which captures the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the illustration of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.
Logo layout MQ farms, this logo design has an area incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms business logo idea wasn’t actually created for an Grants Pass, Oregon regional farm it was in reality created for a products broker, and this particular brand was one of multiple that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The aim was actually to produce an identity that projected trust, success, and affluence.

 Grants Pass Logo design for a nonprofit, Transforming Point Solutions - the logo design attribute for ostensibly dealing with arrowhead and the arrowheads suggest that it is a diamond form.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design that they would like, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the flexibility to investigate any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of realizing where the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the very first try.

Logo design designed for making use of an indication for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is a luxuriant script font style that is reminiscent of a famous sports team logo design.

I’ve created quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the USA, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat project in which I worked directly with the proprietor to produce a logo which worked very 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 which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
