Bryn Mawr-Skyway Logo Design

Nearly every new Bryn Mawr-Skyway business understands that they need a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly realize the vital role their logo design will play in their financial success, or exactly why one business logo performs better than another. A company logo has an immediate and sustaining impact on the financial success of a business, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and phone ring, select the wrong one and it can be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Bryn Mawr-Skyway businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason why they are so effective is because they all have these 5 things in common.

  3. Versatility: logos that work on any sort of device, in print, on packaging, on a mobile phone, or on a ball cap.

Retro logo design of a bike produced for a Bryn Mawr-Skyway coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an older part of town and wanted to project a vintage vibe without appearing as monotonous or low energy. I fulfilled each of the tasks by means of developing a company logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a enduring business image.

clinical logo layout with a microscope slide and also germs created for Bryn Mawr-Skyway medical facility.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline that examines the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare that works with the clinical assessment of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic objectives.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo design I came up with is the only instance I remember where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide into a logo design.

Typically I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly 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 enhancement to the brand that helps make it more interesting, more interest grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo style with a jumping eco-friendly frog designed for a family fun facility in Bryn Mawr-Skyway.

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 also a project that is way out of the usual of the types of jobs which come my way, I’ve done dozens of logo designs for doctors, dental professionals, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the opportunity to work on.

Given that the name of the company has the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a couple springs into the concept but Cool Springz is a fun destination 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, in the end I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my design and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for marketing. I also believe this is the only time that a logo I designed was made into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fashioned to look just like my frog design.

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a path, a stream, and also a tree - made for Bryn Mawr-Skyway travel professional photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design job I took on for a travel photographer, which is a fairly specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality because travel photographers don’t capture 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 project more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they often share whole 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 frequently have an emotional resonance which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something the same to this logo design by making use of 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  Bryn Mawr-Skyway logo but also to reveal the depth of her art and in the way that she views the world through the lens of her camera.

 Bryn Mawr-Skyway logo style with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of logo design jobs that I take on I genuinely relish and the Coastal Wireless project 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 concept of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the character A however my client, while he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly 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 design over to a client I urge all of them to talk about 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 value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his family and they really liked the concept 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his preference of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Business logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to design their business logo recognize how essential a logo design is for their company so they are way more vested in the result. Every logo design job has it’s portion of challenges, but the largest obstacle is identifying 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 image they see for themselves.

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

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a thin parcel of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a published book due to the fact that it is often the initial thing a person views in the book store. Concerning a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever get to advertise their label and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

Air LA logo created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo has 2 letter A's with benches changed to suggest they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and depart yet it seems like that in many occurrences one of the traits consumers often tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller start-up commuter/shuttle airline company situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t ground them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to affording a good sense of airline flight and it was undoubtedly a winner.

 Bryn Mawr-Skyway logo design utilized for advertising and marketing and a tag layout for Vintage Case includes an antiquated font style style.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Bryn Mawr-Skyway, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care logos can be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it appears that almost every dentist integrates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logos are one of the very most cliche ridden fields when it comes to company marketing, if restaurants approached their advertising in the very same way dental practices do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably include a picture of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including a likeness of something mouth related 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 profession.

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

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

William McNally logo design made for a family not-for-profit, the logo design 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 contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be depictive of the devotion that William McNally had for the folks in his city. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain portrayals of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 never hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being openly tacky about it. The objective of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to summarize how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If you have to consider a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that illustrates itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo style created for a hair style workshop including a script font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios desired a business logo which carried a feeling of ease and class for their new hair salon. I created a concept which did not go the obvious direction of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo design which implied an orchid in the pattern of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird floating over the image itself. The obvious path in designing a business logo is frequently the incorrect direction and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately put the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their patrons.

The kernel connects 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 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 offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to identify anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However, it intimated something to the owner of the company and in many cases the substance supporting a logo is just as important as how it brands the business it represents.

With companies such as Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly realized the market was prepared for an outdoor sporting retailer that functions as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to market their pre-owned goods to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Bryn Mawr-Skyway logo dsign with a graphic that grabs the interest of vehicles and projects an image that arouses the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages forty five mph I knew it would take more than the average logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and serene habitat.

The MQ farms logo concept wasn’t really developed for an Bryn Mawr-Skyway area farm it was in reality developed for a commodities broker, and this brand was one of many that fell underneath the MQ umbrella … MQ commodities was one, MQ trading was another.
