North Augusta Logo Design

Virtually every new North Augusta venture understands that they require a logo, but few new business owners entirely grasp the key role their logo design will take in their success, or why one business logo performs more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and long-term impact on the prosperity of a business, pick the right one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, go with the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help North Augusta companies succeed, they are effective in any given situation and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glimpse.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will continue to be 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 personal, and they are suitable for the company they represent.
  5. Relevance: a business logo should be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a North Augusta coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This start-up coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening in an older section of the city and wished to visualize a vintage tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs via developing a symbol design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, high energy, and is a timeless business image.

clinical logo design with a microscope slide and bacteria designed for North Augusta medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that examines the root causes and effects of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which deals with the laboratory assessment of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific 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 an illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog made for a household enjoyable facility in North Augusta.

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 norm of the types of projects that come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental experts, and legal professionals 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 title of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to integrate a some springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t really 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I came up with was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and a tree - developed for North Augusta traveling 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 fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The thought behind this logo concept was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon initial view, which I think is quintessential of most good 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 frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be conveyed with just words. I made an effort to do something similar to this logo by utilizing 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  North Augusta logo design but also to reveal the depth in her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 North Augusta logo layout with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, however the client didn’t quite share my enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull form as a stroke in the letter A however my client, even though he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy seriously disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his scorn for this particular type 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 other people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest assessments on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked the concept and were able to persuade 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.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world given that the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their logo design understand how vital a logo design is for their organization so they are much more vested in the final result. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of challenges, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for North Augusta publication publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, yet it is the most necessary part of a printed book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the primary thing a person views in the bookstore. With regard to a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will likely ever get to publicize their brand and get their logo design in front of the individuals that purchase actual books.

This three color design is vivid, picturesque and eye-catching and it leaves plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart however it looks like that in many cases one of the traits individuals tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a feeling of flight and it was certainly a victory.

 North Augusta logo design made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag style for Vintage Situation features an old-fashioned typeface design.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in North Augusta, layout include an arc with lines converging through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logo designs can be one of the most challenging logo projects because it appears that virtually every dental professional features 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 small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

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

I actually love doing dental care logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of dental treatment like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and subsequently I created a concept that doesn’t have a single smile or a tooth in it, but even though they aren’t obvious, they are still suggested in the concept. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was obvious was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design created for a household nonprofit, the logo includes 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 contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach to any logo design is to be very literal with regards to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution hopes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo design created for a hair style studio including a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a company logo that related a feeling of calmness and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept that did not go the obvious course of making merely a stylized orchid but rather designed a company logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design with the figure of a hummingbird floating above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the wrong course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the attention on the feeling that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

Logo design for a software developer the style attributes and legendary element of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the principal part of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel unites the system 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 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 explain anything to anyone regarding 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 meaning supporting a logo design is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

A logo style including an angler in the center of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the founders of On the Fly understood the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a spot to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their North Augusta business logo dsign along with an image which captures the interest of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and calm habitat.

I have crafted loads of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a great project where I worked closely with the proprietor to develop a logo that 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 which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
