West Mifflin Logo Design

Every new West Mifflin company knows they need a logo, however few new business owners entirely are aware of the pivotal role their business logo can take in their becoming successful, or the reason that one business logo works more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term influence on the success of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help West Mifflin companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be comprehended in just a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will be legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate on any device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are unique, and they are suitable for the enterprise they represent.
  5. Relevance: a company logo needs to be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Retro logo layout of a bike produced for a West Mifflin coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were opening in an older section of the city and hoped to project a vintage atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved the two tasks by means of designing a logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a timeless business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide as well as germs developed for West Mifflin clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine that works with the clinical evaluation of samples of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Typically I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves rather literally, however 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 intriguing, more interest grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a leaping green frog designed for a family fun facility in West Mifflin.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental experts, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the business has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually 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 give the logo a better dynamic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and incorporated him in to everything they used for promotion and marketing. 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 fabricated to look just like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, as well as a tree - created for West Mifflin travel 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 specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche sector due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture places or things but instead communicate emotional journeys through the images they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they often share entire 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 resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I tried to do something the same to this logo design 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  West Mifflin logo but also to illustrate the depth in her work and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 West Mifflin logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I truly savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really felt good about, however the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however the client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his aversion for this particular kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge all of them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced assessments on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really loved 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 … in the end I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire a professional to design their logo design understand how vital a logo is for their company so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo project has it’s allotment of hurdles, however the biggest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow parcel of real estate to work with, but it is the most crucial part of a published book considering that it is in most cases the very first thing a person sees in the book store. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity that they will likely ever get to advertise their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that shop for actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems like that in many occurrences one of the aspects individuals tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a sense of airline flight and it was certainly a success.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in West Mifflin, layout include an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs due to the fact that it seems that each and every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the same way dental professionals do every one of their logos would be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo nevertheless it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dental care profession.

I really enjoy doing dental logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a specific area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd course of action that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design designed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

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 people in his city. Many 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 discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo layout created for a hair style studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo which projected an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept which did not go the obvious direction of making simply a stylized orchid but rather crafted a business logo which suggested a flower in the pattern of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the name and by placing attention on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is more often than not the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the importance on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

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

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it symbolized something to the owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a business logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

Whether you are into boating, fishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a place for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to sell off their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts. I created their West Mifflin business logo dsign utilizing an image that grabs the interest of traffic and sends an image that invokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

I have designed quite a lot of restaurant logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite.
