Bothell West Logo Design

Each and every new Bothell West business realizes that they require a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly comprehend the essential role their logo can perform in their financial success, or exactly why one logo design performs far better than another. A logo design has a critical and long term effect on the success of a company, pick the right one and it can make the door swing and phone ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and a hindrance for the life span of a business. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Bothell West companies succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos don’t demand contemplation, they can be grasped in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to posters a scalable business logo will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that work on any type of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball-cap.
  4. Suitability: they are appropriate, they are exclusive, and they are suitable for the enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a company logo must be lasting and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and forty years from now.

Retro logo style of a bike created for a Bothell West coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This startup coffee roaster and bistro were launching in an old section of the area and hoped to cast a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I fulfilled each of the jobs via designing a company logo concept that contains a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo layout with a microscopic lense slide and also bacteria created for Bothell West medical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which investigates the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the laboratory assessment of samplings of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I call to mind in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it serves very 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 a description of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the name that makes it more captivating, more attention grabbing and much more unforgettable.

logo layout with a leaping environment-friendly frog developed for a family fun facility in Bothell West.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool 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 which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, 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 full name of the business has the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a handful of springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring does not actually reflect an atmosphere 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a much more enthusiastic high energy mood.

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

photography logo including a group of birds, a mountain, a trail, a stream, as well as a tree - developed for Bothell West traveling professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a custom logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather niche field of photography and I think it is a niche field because travel photographers don’t shoot places or things but rather convey emotional journeys by means of the photos they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to project more than what was visible upon first glance, which I think is quintessential of almost all good photographers in that they often share entire stories through 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 resonance that can’t be communicated with just words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo by utilizing the positive space in the design to say 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  Bothell West logo but also to illustrate the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bothell West logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of custom logo design jobs that I take on I seriously savor and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I really 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 my client, even though he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy seriously disliked 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 specific breed of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get impartial opinions on the benefit of a design. Fortunately, he discussed it with his family 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 include 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 concept.

Logo designs are a strange animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to create their logo recognize how essential a logo is for their organization so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo project possesses it’s allotment of obstacles, but the largest challenge is identifying that sweet spot in a design that works really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the client the image they see for themselves.

The book spine is a cramped parcel of real estate to work with, yet it really is the most critical part of a printed book because it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the book store.

The Air LA logo design was done for a young startup commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not certain it really “took off” their business logo didn’t slow them.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Bothell West, design include an arc with lines converging with it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most challenging and difficult logo design jobs considering that it appears that every single dental professional incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the most cliche ridden professions when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their branding in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have a picture of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind including an image of something mouth associated to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless 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 care profession.

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

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

William McNally logo created for a family members not-for-profit, the logo features 4 personalities startled in height 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 brand identity design that would be illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the people in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy approach 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 designs are the ones that are understated and never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or institution hopes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo which communicated that they were about families without being overtly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo design 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 goal of a logo. If you have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the opportunity to be understood.

Logo design created for a hair design workshop featuring a script font a hummingbird as well as an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a company logo that carried a feeling of contentment and class for their new hair salon. I came up with a design which did not go the obvious direction of designing just a stylized orchid but alternatively created a company logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the name and by putting attention on the concept using the silhouette of a hummingbird hovering over the logo itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is frequently the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but alternately placed the emphasis on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

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 between the software program and computer hardware.

The business logo 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 explain anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it represented something to the business owner of the business and in many cases the substance behind a business logo is just as important as how it serves the company it stands for.

Whether or not you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a location for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a spot to sell their previously owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I created their Bothell West business logo dsign with a graphic which seizes the attention of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.
