Barrington, Rhode Island Logo Design

Each and every new Barrington business person knows they require a logo, but few entrepreneurs entirely comprehend the key role their company logo will make in their success, or the reason that one logo design works far better than another. A logo has an instant and sustaining effect on the viability of a business, pick the correct one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization.

The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Barrington, Rhode Island companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not demand consideration, they can be grasped in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from labels to signboards a scalable business logo will be legible and equally emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos which operate 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 are exclusive, and they are suitable for the company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo must be lasting and will feel as relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from now.
Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Barrington, Rhode Island coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were launching in an old part of the area and really wanted to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as monotonous or low energy. I achieved each of the jobs by creating a company logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide and also bacteria created for Barrington, Rhode Island clinical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which investigates the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Generally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 enhancer to the name that makes it more interesting, more focus grabbing and more memorable.

logo design with a jumping eco-friendly frog developed for a family members fun facility in Barrington, Rhode Island.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very cool project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the norm of the kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a some springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually resonate an environment 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a better enthusiastic high energy feel.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - developed for Barrington, Rhode Island traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche profession because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional experiences through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo composition was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional photographers in that they frequently share entire stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey much more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which 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 looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Barrington logo but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Barrington logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of business logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely savor 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 concept of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his scorn for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage them to talk about it with colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get honest opinions on the value of a concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really liked the design and were able to reason with 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their business logo recognize how important a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the end result. Every logo design job possesses it’s portion of challenges, but the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender piece of real estate to work with, however it is the most critical part of a published book considering that it is often the primary thing a person sees in the book shop.

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Barrington, Rhode Island, style include an arc with lines intersecting via it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design jobs because it appears that every dentist includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to business marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental offices do every one of their logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design nevertheless 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 industry.

I actually love doing dental business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain field of the field 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 layout that doesn’t have a solitary 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 concept over to the customer the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo features 4 personalities surprised in height to stand for a family with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. 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 very literal pertaining to 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 organization wants to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design which conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe exactly how people ought to 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 that explains itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

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

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which projected a spirit of serenity and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a design which didn’t go the obvious direction of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company 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 concept with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is oftentimes the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately placed the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their patrons.

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 management, and disk management. The kernel unites the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that behaves as a connection between the software and computer 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 point out anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it meant something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year retailing goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of passions, a spot to sell off their used equipment to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Barrington logo dsign using a graphic which garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that evokes the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five miles per hour 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 peaceful habitat.

Fortunately, in this instance, I nailed a bullseye with the first shot.

I’ve created loads of restaurant logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments, and eateries all over the USA, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked closely with the proprietor to produce a logo design which worked really 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 that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
