We have performed logo design work for farmers, schools, heart surgeons, wedding singers, restaurants, retail stores, and virtually every other kind of business concern you can think of.

American Made ★ Design

The one difference which seriously sets ImageCo apart from other design agencies that you may have come across in Google’s search results, companies like Thumbtack, Design Hill, Upwork, or Crowdspring is that each and every project we are contracted to do, we do ourselves. Irrespective of the kind of design project we undertake, logo, website design, trade show display, or electric sign, we do not, and never will contract out our client’s work to 3rd parties located outside the US. When you contact us at 1-855-IMAGECO the party that picks up the telephone is ImageCo’s owner and designer, not a middleman that increases the price of your project and dictates the terms of how we conduct business.

QUALITIES OF A GREAT LOGO DESIGN

Every new Upper Saint Clair company knows they require a logo, however few new business owners entirely comprehend the key role their organization’s logo can play in their success, or why one logo design works more effectively than another. A company logo has a critical and long term impact on the growth of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Upper Saint Clair businesses prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not need scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from label to posters a scalable logo design will stay legible and just as emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos which work on any sort of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they feel exclusive, and they are suitable for the item or company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be enduring and should feel equally relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

understand your brand

Brand – It’s both a verb and also a noun, it is an identifying mark and the process of denoting something so that it could be distinguished, its foundation comes from the brand branded onto animals. Today a brand represents virtually anything with an intention, regardless if it be revenue or government agencies, a brand is an intrinsic aspect of specifying the worth of something in the customer’s mind.

Branding – Is kind of like marketing and advertising’s attractive cousin, they are both from the exact same family, the difference being that advertising and marketing are about making a promise and branding’s objective is to deliver on that promise. Branding is also a strategic popularity contest directed at a target audience, it’s objective is to develop a mental image that the target market will connect to.

Brand Image – An image planted and cultivated by advertising and marketing and identity design. When someone mentions the brand names Ferrari or Corvette what we think about is their brand image, it’s a picture that exists in our minds. That image isn’t an image of a car with 4 wheels that can move us from point A to point B, the image we have (or at least I have) is of speed, beauty, of something dangerous and unique . That is brand image and brand image is what makes individuals purchase those brands. Brand image is why people acquire specific brands, from Nike to Adidas Chevy or Ford, Democrats or Republicans … all driven by brand images that people can relate to.

Branding Firms – If you reflect on the origin of most branding firms you’ll find that they are frequently re-branded advertising and marketing firms. When a person states they are in advertising the majority of people will likely have a preconceived notion about what they do. However when a person says “I’m in branding”… it just sounds much more attractive, possibly it’s due to the fact that lots of people do not know what it indicates to be in branding so it comes off as more mysterious and perhaps even attractive.

Brand Identity – Is an inclusive term that describes the visual elements of a product or company that affect perceptions. This primarily includes the name, the logo design, the product packaging, the colors utilized yet can additionally include sound, lights, texture, signage, actually anything that can be seen, touched or heard belong to a brand identity.

Brand Identity Designers
– A brand identity designer is a visual designer that specializes in a type of visual design that helps form the perception of a company, a product or an institution. Brand identity designers create logo designs, signage designs, product packaging, and collateral material such as cards, stationery, and also brochures. Some identity designers also build websites and also software interfaces. The necessary duty of a brand identity designer is to develop the visual cues and a psychological tone with the goal of affecting activities, results and also perceptions.

Featured SIGNS & LOGOS

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Upper Saint Clair coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee bar were opening in an old section of the city and wished to cast an old-fashioned tone without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks via creating a trademark concept that incorporates a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and bacteria made for Upper Saint Clair medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which researches the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which deals with the clinical assessment of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I recollect in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Normally I attempt not to be extremely literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents very literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates 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 enhancement to the name that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and a lot more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping green frog created for a household enjoyable center in Upper Saint Clair.

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 norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental professionals, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really reflect 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 name itself to provide the logo a better enthusiastic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - designed for Upper Saint Clair travel 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 rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead communicate emotional experiences through the photos they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes share whole stories through 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 that can’t be conveyed with just words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo by using 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Upper Saint Clair logo but also to show the depth to her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Upper Saint Clair logo design with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment 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 character A however the customer, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man seriously despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the value of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed it with his whole family and they really loved the design and were able to persuade 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo recognize how important a logo design is for their business so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design job has it’s share of obstacles, but the greatest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates 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, layout for Upper Saint Clair book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, but it is the most crucial part of a printed book since it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book store. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever get to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the men and women that shop for actual books.

This 3 color design is vibrant, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of space for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects people usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young start-up commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their custom logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 Upper Saint Clair logo layout used for advertising and also a tag layout for Vintage Case features an archaic typeface design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in new cases for music instruments, that seemed to be vintage cases. For this custom logo concept I tried to come up with a logo that had a fluid nostalgic feel to it and could be utilized for every thing from a web site to an insignia on brand new cases that looked like they were from another generation.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Upper Saint Clair, layout consist of an arc with lines converging with it to indicate steel braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that each and every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration 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 enjoy doing dentist business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd solution that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept 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 particular design over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most 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 very literal about 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 business or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to explain exactly how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo that describes itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo style developed for a Upper Saint Clair hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios wanted a logo which communicated a feeling of contentment and class for their new hair studio. I created a design which did not go the obvious route of crafting merely a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo which suggested an orchid in the pattern of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a business logo is in most cases the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the attention on the perception that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

Arabian horse logo design developed for a horse cattle ranch that concentrates on reproducing Arabian show equines.

Dazzo Arabians | Logo Design

ImageCo developed a distinct company logo concept customized to display the unique physical traits of the Arabian pedigree of equines. With a different head form and higher tail posture, the Arabian is one of the very most immediately identifiable horse lineages in the world.

Las Cafe | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

Las Cafe logo design a tiny restaurant, style contains a customized script typeface which hovers above a team of luxuriant lines as well as dots.

Logo design for a software designer the style functions and also legendary Upper Saint Clair component of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The business 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 spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it symbolized something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the significance behind a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the business it represents.

Advance logo design created for a Upper Saint Clairindoor designer, design feature a collection of red circles that converge as well as change the letter O in the center of the logo layout.

Evolv Interior Design | Logo Design | Branding

A Upper Saint Clair business logo layout including an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly recognized the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment company. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their secondhand goods to other sports enthusiasts.

I tailored their Upper Saint Clair logo design utilizing a graphic which captures the attention of traffic and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five miles per hour I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

Logo layout MQ ranches, this Upper Saint Clair company logo design has actually a field incorporated into the letter Q.

MQ Farms | Logo Design | Branding

The MQ farms company logo idea wasn’t really composed for an Upper Saint Clair area farm it was actually devised for a commodities broker, and this creative logo was one of many which fell under the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another. The end goal was really to make an identity that projects trust, success, and luxury.

 Upper Saint Clair Logo design for a not-for-profit, Turning Factor Solutions - the logo style function for ostensibly encountering arrowhead and the arrowheads indicate that it is a ruby shape.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was entirely open to what type of logo design they preferred, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it gives a designer the liberty to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s challenging to hit a bullseye in the absence of knowing where the target is. Luckily, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design designed for using a sign for the restaurant (Brewgrrs), it is an ornate script font that is evocative a well-known Upper Saint Clair sports team logo design.

Brewgrrs Restaurant | Logo Design | Restaurant Branding

I have crafted loads of restaurant logo designs and business 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 think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a neat undertaking where I worked closely with the owner to develop a business logo which worked really well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the illuminated signage that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
