Norristown, Pennsylvania Logo Design

Nearly every new Norristown business person knows they are in need of a logo, however few new business owners entirely understand the vital role their organization’s logo will take in their financial success, or precisely why one logo works more effectively than another. A logo design has an instant and long-term influence on the prosperity of a company, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Norristown, Pennsylvania companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is that they all have these five things in common.

Retro logo layout of a bike created for a Norristown, Pennsylvania coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an older section of the area and really wanted to cast a retro feel without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by developing a company logo design that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also germs made for Norristown, Pennsylvania clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which researches the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the clinical examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the sole instance I recall in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Generally I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents rather 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more appealing, more focus grabbing and much more memorable.

logo design with a leaping eco-friendly frog developed for a family fun facility in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very 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 usual of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have actually ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a much more dynamic high energy feeling.

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

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - created for Norristown, Pennsylvania traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather convey emotional journeys through the images they record. The thought behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often share whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo by employing 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Norristown 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.

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

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 really 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 letter A however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular man really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to share it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced viewpoints on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about 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 went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to create their business logo realize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo job has it’s portion of challenges, but 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 providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Norristown, Pennsylvania book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped segment of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most vital part of a published book given that it is usually the initial thing a person views in the book store. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will ever have to publicize their product and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go nevertheless it seems that in many cases 1 of the items individuals tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young fledgling commuter/shuttle air service located in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their organization logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to affording a feeling of air travel and it was certainly a success.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Norristown, Pennsylvania, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects considering that it seems that every single dental professional involves 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 branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo design 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 dentistry profession.

I really love doing dentistry business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach 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 implied in the concept. When I turned this particular design over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo created for a family not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in height to stand for a family with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a custom 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 portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be far too literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to summarize exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo that describes itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout created for a hair design studio featuring 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 that projected a feeling of contentment and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design that did not go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively crafted a business logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl featured into the letter O in the name and by putting emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a company logo is usually the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately put the focus on the feeling that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The logo design 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 spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it represented something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the meaning supporting a logo design is just as important as how it brands the business it stands for.

Whether or not you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a location to market their previously owned items to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Norristown logo dsign utilizing an image that garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

Thankfully, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the first go.

I have created quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked closely with the proprietor to create a business logo which worked extremely well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
