Each and every new Rock Hill venture knows they need a logo, however few new business owners fully grasp the crucial role their organization logo can play in their becoming successful, or why one logo design performs better than another. A company logo has a critical and sustaining effect on the financial success of a company, go with the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the life span of an organization.

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Rock Hill coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and coffee shop were launching in an older part of the area and really wanted to cast a retro atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished both of these jobs by designing a business logo concept 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 style with a microscope slide as well as germs created for Rock Hill medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that researches the root causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of medicine which works with the clinical examination of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Generally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, but 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more intriguing, more attention grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a household fun center in Rock Hill.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun 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 kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dentists, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to include a couple of springs into the concept 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 logo design project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy feeling.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Rock Hill travel digital 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 think it is a niche profession because travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to convey more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often share whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a lot more than that because their photos often have an emotional resonance which can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something comparable to this logo design 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  Rock Hill logo but also to show the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Rock Hill 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 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 enthusiasm for it. I felt really good about the idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A however my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy really loathed seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family did not share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with individuals that they don’t actually know so as to get neutral opinions on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … in the end I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he went with the original concept.

Logos are a strange animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo recognize how essential a logo design is for their organization so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo design project possesses it’s allotment of hurdles, however the most significant obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the client the identity they see for themselves.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems that in many instances one of the traits individuals tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small start-up commuter/shuttle airline located in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their custom logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was definitely a winner.

 Rock Hill logo design utilized for advertising as well as a label design for Vintage Case includes an old typeface layout.

Logo created for an orthodontist in Rock Hill, style consist of an arc with lines converging through it to indicate steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logo designs can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design projects due to the fact that it appears that almost every dental professional involves a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company branding, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company 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 profession.

I really love doing dentist business logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo made for a family nonprofit, the logo includes 4 characters startled in elevation to represent 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 brand identity design that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. Many 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 discovered that the best designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to illustrate exactly how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be comprehended.

Logo layout created for a hair style studio featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo that related a spirit of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious route of crafting merely a stylized orchid but rather delivered a company logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is frequently the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead laid the main focus on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

The kernel connects the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a bridge between the software and computer hardware.

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

I designed their Rock Hill business logo dsign using an illustration which grabs the interest of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors.
