Lake Ridge Logo Design

Every new Lake Ridge organization realizes that they need a logo, however few entrepreneurs fully recognize the essential role their company logo can take in their financial success, or why one logo performs more effectively than another. A business logo has a critical and lasting effect on the financial success of a company, choose the correct one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be a barrier and an impediment for the longevity of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Lake Ridge companies prosper, 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 logos do not demand scrutiny, they can be understood in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable logo design will stay legible and equally emotive at virtually any dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any 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 company they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo must be lasting and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Lake Ridge coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually opening up in an old section of the area and hoped to cast a vintage atmosphere without appearing as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both jobs by means of creating 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.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Lake Ridge clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that analyzes the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that deals with the clinical evaluation of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the only instance I recollect where I was able to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this design approaches the company it represents rather literally, however it does it in a way 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 brand that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo style with a leaping environment-friendly frog created for a household enjoyable center in Lake Ridge.

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 kinds of projects that come my way, I’ve done 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 had the privilege 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 couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not really reflect an atmosphere 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and integrated 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 fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo design featuring a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - developed for Lake Ridge travel 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 pretty niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality because travel photographers don’t shoot locations or things but instead reveal emotional journeys by means of the images they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to reveal more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is representative of the majority of good photographers in that they oftentimes tell whole stories using their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something very similar to this logo design by making use of 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Lake Ridge logo but also to illustrate the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Lake Ridge logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design 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 character A however the customer, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This guy really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family did not share his contempt for this specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t even know so as to get impartial assessments on the worthiness of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family members and they loved 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 … ultimately I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their logo design understand how essential a logo is for their company so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design project possesses it’s share of difficulties, however the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most critical part of a published book given that it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. Concerning a publishing company, it’s the most ideal 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.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it looks like that in many instances one of the things people often tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling commuter/shuttle air service situated in LA and although I’m not certain it really “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to conferring a good sense of airline flight and it was definitely a victory.

 Lake Ridge logo style used for advertising and marketing and also a label design for Vintage Case features an old font layout.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Lake Ridge, layout consist of an arc with lines converging with it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design jobs due to the fact that it seems that every single dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the very most cliche ridden professions when it comes to small business advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the exact same way dental offices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo design 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 actually love doing dentist logo designs simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a particular field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

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

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be illustrative of the love that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or institution wants to relate.

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

Logo style developed for a hair design studio including a manuscript font a hummingbird and a suggested orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a business logo which projected a sense of ease and connection for their new hair salon. I came up with a design that didn’t go the obvious path of making simply a stylized orchid but rather designed a logo design which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl integrated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is more often than not the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the main focus on the emotion that they wanted to project to their customers.

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Typically, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and disk management. The kernel connects 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 program and hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple of miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to point out anything to anyone pertaining to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the meaning behind a business logo is just as important as how it brands the company it stands for.

I designed their Lake Ridge logo design dsign with an illustration that garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors.
