Mission Bend, Texas Logo Design

Nearly every new Mission Bend venture realizes that they require a logo, however few entrepreneurs fully recognize the crucial role their logo design will make in their success, or why one logo functions more effectively than another. A logo design has an immediate and sustaining effect on the prosperity of a business, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life of a company.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Mission Bend, Texas coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and cafe were actually opening up in an old section of the area and wished to project an old-fashioned tone without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both tasks by designing a business logo concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide and germs made for Mission Bend, Texas medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that studies the triggers and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

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

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it represents rather 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 helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping green frog made for a family fun facility in Mission Bend, Texas.

Cool Springs | 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 also 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 practices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the full name of the company features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to include a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually resonate 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a more lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I came up with was turned into a mascot when they had an employee costume fabricated to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design including a flock of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, and a tree - created for Mission Bend, Texas traveling digital photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers tend not to shoot locations or things but rather reveal emotional experiences by means of the images they capture. The thought behind this logo concept was to make use of negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all professional photographers in that they often tell 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 fullness that can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something very similar to this logo by using the positive space in the design to voice 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Mission Bend logo but also to illustrate the depth of her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Mission Bend logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I really savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly felt good about, however 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 letter A but the customer, even though he liked 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 type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage them to share it with colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get objective assessments on the benefit of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they loved 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 insert every other seabird he could think of … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Business logos are a weird animal in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design realize how essential a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project has it’s allotment of obstacles, however the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo layout with bamboo in the background, design for Mission Bend, Texas book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin piece of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most necessary part of a published book due to the fact that it is ordinarily the primary thing a person views in the book shop. For a publishing company, it’s the opportunity that they will ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for 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 design designed for an airline company in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with benches changed to indicate they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart yet it seems like that in many cases 1 of the things consumers usually tend to recollect the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a spirit of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

 Mission Bend logo layout made use of for advertising and marketing and a tag style for Vintage Situation features an antiquated font layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Mission Bend, Texas, layout include an arc with lines converging through it to indicate metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo jobs considering that it appears that each and every dental professional integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dentistry logo designs are one of the most cliche ridden fields when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the very same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but 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 dentistry industry.

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

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

William McNally logo design created for a family not-for-profit, the logo design includes 4 personalities surprised in height to represent 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 logo that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his city. Most 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 overly literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve discovered that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo design that communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to describe exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to ponder a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that illustrates itself will never have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style created for a hair style workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo that projected a spirit of ease and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious path of crafting just a stylized orchid but rather crafted a logo that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the logo design using the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo design is more often than not the incorrect course and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead laid the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to forecast to their clients.

Logo style for a software program designer the layout features and iconic aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central part of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and drive management. The kernel connects the system 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 hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it meant something to the owner of the business and in many cases the substance supporting a business logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

A logo layout featuring a fisherman in the middle of the name casting a fly in the direction of the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brands like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting fans the owners of On the Fly understood the market place was ready for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a spot to sell their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Mission Bend logo design dsign with a graphic which garners the attention of traffic and sends an image that invokes 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 relaxed habitat.

Turning Point Foundation | Logo Design

The Turning Point Foundation was totally open to what type of logo design that they wanted, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. Good in that it offers a designer the freedom to discover any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s difficult to hit a bullseye in the absence of understanding where the target is. Thankfully, in this particular instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first go.

Logo design created for the use of a sign for the dining establishment (Brewgrrs), it is an elaborate manuscript font that is similar to a famous sports group logo.

I’ve designed quite a lot of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite. Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked closely with the business owner to create a business logo that worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it functioned on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon sign that hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
