Redmond Logo Design

Nearly every new Redmond company knows they require a logo, but few new business owners fully recognize the vital role their business logo will make in their becoming successful, or exactly why one business logo works better than another. A logo design has a critical and lasting impact on the prosperity of a business, choose the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Redmond 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.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not require scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any scale.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any type of 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 company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from today.

Retro logo style of a bicycle produced for a Redmond coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening up in an old part of the area and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic vibe without appearing as boring or low energy. I achieved both of these jobs by means of creating a custom logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also bacteria developed for Redmond clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which examines the causes and consequences of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which works with the clinical assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves very literally, yet it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 enhancer to the name that helps make it more appealing, more focus grabbing and even more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog made for a family fun center in Redmond.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and attorneys 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 name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun place 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 dynamic high energy mood.

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

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Redmond traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead convey emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good 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 frequently have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something the same to this logo design 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 objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Redmond logo design but also to reveal the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Redmond logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but my customer, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the merit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really loved 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

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 comprehend how crucial a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of hurdles, however the most significant obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Redmond book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender segment of real estate to work with, nevertheless it really is the most crucial part of a published book due to the fact that it is in most cases the first thing a person views in the book store. For a publishing company, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go yet it looks like that in many instances 1 of the traits people often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a feeling of flight and it was definitely a success.

 Redmond logo layout utilized for advertising as well as a label layout for Vintage Case features an old typeface style.

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

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it seems that every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design but it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental profession.

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

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

William McNally logo created for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in height to represent a family with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain precisely how people should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo layout produced 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 desired a business logo that carried a spirit of ease and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious course of creating just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a company logo that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is frequently the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive operations. The kernel attaches the computer 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 hardware.

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

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting lovers the owners of On the Fly realized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a spot to sell their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Redmond logo design dsign with an illustration that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I knew it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the graphic of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t really developed for an Redmond regional farm it was in reality devised for an investments broker, and this logo design was one of a handful of that fell beneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, 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 where I worked directly with the business owner to create 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 sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
