Aberdeen Logo Design

Virtually every new Aberdeen business knows they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners fully understand the essential role their business logo will make in their financial success, or the reason that one business logo functions better than another. A company logo has an immediate and long-term influence on the success of a business, select the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Aberdeen companies succeed, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these 5 things in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require scrutiny, they can be realized in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo design will remain legible and just as emotive at every dimension.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any type of device, in print, on product packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are personal, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design should be enduring and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty five years from today.

Retro logo style of a bike developed for a Aberdeen coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This budding coffee roaster and coffeehouse were launching in an old section of town and wished to project a nostalgic feel without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I achieved both tasks via creating a symbol concept that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscopic lense slide as well as bacteria developed for Aberdeen clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science that analyzes the causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which works with the clinical examination of samples of human body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

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

Generally I attempt not to be excessively literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves very literally, but 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 brand that helps make it more intriguing, more interest grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog designed for a family members fun facility in Aberdeen.

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 additionally a project that is way out of the norm of the sorts of projects that come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, and lawyers but Cool Springz is without question the one and only trampoline park which I have ever gotten the privilege to work on.

Given that the title of the company has the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to include a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not really resonate an environment of fun does it. My thought process on this logo project went from springs (boring) to what jumps around, kangaroos … but kangaroos are cute and this place is cool, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to provide the logo a better dynamic high energy mood.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also think 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 exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and also a tree - created for Aberdeen traveling professional 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 rather niche field of photography and I believe it is a niche field due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but rather communicate emotional experiences through the pictures they record. The thought behind this logo design was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is representative of the majority of professional 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 much more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I tried to do something the same 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 hindsight, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Aberdeen logo design but also to illustrate the depth of her work and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Aberdeen logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of custom logo design projects that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I certainly felt good about, but the customer didn’t quite share my excitement for it. I felt really good about the concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A however the client, while he loved the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This man really disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his family didn’t share his scorn for this particular type of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a client I encourage all of them to share it with friends and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective point of views on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family members 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 preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original concept.

Business logos are a strange creature in the design world because the people that are inclined to hire a professional to design their business logo recognize how crucial a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the final result. Every logo project possesses it’s portion of challenges, but the greatest obstacle is identifying that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo style with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Aberdeen book author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most important part of a printed book considering that it is in most cases the primary thing a person sees in the bookstore. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the absolute best opportunity that they will ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the men and women that purchase actual books.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart however it seems that in many occurrences 1 of the things consumers tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small startup commuter/shuttle airline company located in LA and although I’m not sure it actually “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a good sense of flight and it was surely a winner.

 Aberdeen logo layout used for marketing and also a tag layout for Vintage Case features an archaic typeface layout.

Logo design developed for an orthodontist in Aberdeen, design include an arc with lines intersecting with it to suggest metal braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most challenging logo design projects due to the fact that it seems that every dental professional includes a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental business logos are one of the most cliche ridden careers when it comes to small business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental practitioners do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture explaining anything they served, McDonalds would likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind incorporating an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company 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 industry.

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

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

William McNally logo design developed for a family members not-for-profit, the logo design 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 asked ImageCo to help them come up with a custom logo design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal pertaining to what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution wishes to relate.

The McNally Foundation’s name offered a distinct opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The goal of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to illustrate exactly how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the mission of a logo. If you have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly understood and a logo design that illustrates itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo style produced for a hair layout workshop including a manuscript font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo which communicated an atmosphere of peace and class for their new hair studio. I created a concept that did not go the obvious path of making simply a stylized orchid but instead crafted a logo that suggested an orchid in the formation of a swirl integrated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is frequently the wrong path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the importance on the emotion that they wanted to forecast to their patrons.

A kernel is the key component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive management. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge in between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a couple 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. Nevertheless it represented something to the owner of the company and in many cases the symbolism behind a logo is equally as important as how it brands the enterprise it represents.

I’ve crafted quite a lot of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite.
