Buckhall Logo Design

Nearly every new Buckhall company realizes that they need a logo, but few entrepreneurs fully realize the key role their organization logo will play in their financial success, or precisely why one logo design performs more effectively than another. A company logo has an instant and sustaining impact on the financial success of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Buckhall businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be realized in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work 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 unique, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo design must be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and thirty years from now.

Retro logo design of a bicycle created for a Buckhall coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee bar were actually opening in an old part of the area and hoped to visualize an old-fashioned vibe without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I accomplished both tasks by developing a business logo design that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

clinical logo style with a microscope slide as well as germs designed for Buckhall medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which researches the root causes and consequences of diseases, especially the field of healthcare that works with the clinical evaluation of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I call to mind where I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a business logo design.

Generally I try not to be overly literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite 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 a description 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 a lot more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping green frog developed for a family fun center in Buckhall.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really fun project to work on, probably because a trampoline park is all about fun. It’s also a project that is way out of the usual of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park that I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to integrate a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place 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 much more lively 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 used for advertising. I also think this is the only time that a logo I designed was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a path, a stream, and a tree - created for Buckhall travel 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 fairly niche field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t capture locations or things but instead communicate emotional journeys through the images they capture. The thought behind this logo composition was to use negative space to convey more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they frequently 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 great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional resonance that can’t be communicated with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by using 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Buckhall 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.

 Buckhall logo style with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail business.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of business logo design projects that I take on I truly relish 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the character A but the customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular man genuinely hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, fortunately 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 encourage all of them to share it with friends and family members as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get unprejudiced opinions on the merit of a design concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they really loved the design and were able to persuade 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 preference of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their business logo understand how essential a logo design is for their company so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of obstacles, however the biggest obstacle 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 providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo in the background, style for Buckhall book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, but it is the most important part of a published book due to the fact that it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the book shop. With regard to a publisher, it’s the optimal opportunity that they will likely ever get to spotlight their product 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 2 letter A's with the bars changed to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and depart nevertheless it seems that in many cases 1 of the things folks often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle air service based in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to imparting a feeling of flight and it was undoubtedly a success.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Buckhall, style include an arc with lines intersecting with it to imply metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can easily be one of the most challenging and difficult logo projects considering that it appears that every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their branding in the same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth associated to a dentist’s 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 industry.

I really enjoy doing dental care logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics offered such an opportunity and eventually I created a design 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 design. When I turned this particular concept over to the client the only smile that was evident was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo design made for a household nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters startled in elevation to stand for a family unit with in the style.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo 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 depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy strategy to any logo design is to be very literal about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best designs are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to illustrate how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo that describes itself won’t have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo style produced for a hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird and also a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a logo design that conveyed an atmosphere of serenity and connection for their new hair salon. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of making simply a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo which suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering above the image itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is usually the wrong direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately laid the main focus on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their patrons.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, 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 performs as a bridge between the software program and 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 offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in quite a few cases the substance supporting a logo is just as important as how it serves the organization it represents.

With brands such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year offering supplies and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly understood the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment company. Whether or not you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all types of passions, a location to market their used products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Buckhall logo design dsign along with an image which garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

I have crafted loads of restaurant business logos and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake pastry shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite.
