Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Virginia Beach, Virginia coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffee shop were actually launching in an older part of the area and really wanted to project a nostalgic tone without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled both jobs by means of designing a company logo design that incorporates 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 microscopic lense slide and bacteria made for Virginia Beach, Virginia medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that investigates the triggers and effects of diseases, mainly the field of medicine that deals with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is really the sole instance I remember where I was in a position to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Usually I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a point, this design approaches the company it serves quite 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and a lot more memorable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog developed for a family enjoyable center in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Cool Springs | 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 usual of the types of jobs that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dentists, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the full name of the business features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to feature a couple of springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun place to go and spring doesn’t actually reflect 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 title itself to give the logo a more enthusiastic high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they used for advertising and 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 exactly like my frog design.

digital photography logo featuring a group of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - designed for Virginia Beach, Virginia traveling photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche profession due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional experiences by means of the pictures they record. 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 representative of most good photographers in that they often share entire stories using 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 which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I made an effort to do something comparable 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 conveyed through the first impression. I think, in hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Virginia Beach logo but also to show the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Virginia Beach logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design projects that I take on I really relish and the Coastal Wireless design was one that I really felt good about, however the customer 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 my client, while he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family members did not share his hatred for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I urge them to discuss it with colleagues and family as well as with folks that they don’t actually know so as to get honest judgements on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they adored the design and were able to persuade him and get him to sign off on it, but not before he worked me over to include 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 concept.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their logo design realize how important a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s share of obstacles, but the most significant challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the task it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, style for Virginia Beach, Virginia book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a slender parcel of real estate to work with, nevertheless it is the most critical part of a published book considering that it is often the very first thing a person views in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the absolute best opportunity they will likely ever get to advertise 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 gives plenty of territory for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart but it seems like that in many occurrences one of the traits individuals often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and while I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Virginia Beach logo style made use of for advertising and a tag style for Vintage Case includes an antiquated font style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Vintage case focused in all new cases for musical instruments, that appeared to be antique cases.

Logo produced for an orthodontist in Virginia Beach, Virginia, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting through it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs considering that it seems that every single 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 professions when it comes to small business branding, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dental offices do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would probably have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind incorporating an illustration of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but 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 actually love doing dental care logo designs because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a specific area of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical course of action that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and inevitably I created a layout that doesn’t 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was apparent was really the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo made for a family members not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled 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 families in his community. The majority of 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 far too literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization hopes to communicate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The goal of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo to explain specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If viewers have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo design created for a hair layout studio featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo that conveyed a spirit of ease and connection for their new hair studio. I created a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of crafting merely a stylized orchid but instead delivered a business logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl blended in to the letter O in the name and by placing emphasis on the concept using the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is generally the wrong route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead placed the focus on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

A kernel is the principal component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task management, and disk managing. The kernel links the computer 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 I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a few 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. But it represented something to the owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo is just as important as how it brands the enterprise it stands for.

I designed their Virginia Beach logo design dsign using a graphic that captures the attention of traffic and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors.

Fortunately, in this instance, I struck a bullseye with the very first shot.

Brewgrrs was a great undertaking in which I worked closely with the business owner to design a logo which worked very 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 illuminated signage that hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
