Cottage Lake Logo Design

Nearly every new Cottage Lake business knows they are in need of a logo, however few new business owners thoroughly recognize the vital role their logo design will perform in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design functions better than another. A business logo has an instant and lasting impact on the growth of a company, select the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos included in the ImageCo portfolio help Cottage Lake businesses succeed, they are effective in any given circumstance and the reason they are so effective is because they all have these 5 traits in common.

Retro logo layout of a bicycle created for a Cottage Lake coffee cafe and also a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

I fulfilled each of the tasks via designing a trademark design that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a enduring business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide and bacteria developed for Cottage Lake clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the scientific discipline which examines the root causes and outcomes of diseases, especially the branch of healthcare which deals with the clinical examination of samples of body cellular material for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology logo I came up with is the sole instance I recall in which I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a logo design.

Generally I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it serves fairly literally, yet it does it in a way that integrates 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 appealing, more attention grabbing and a lot more unforgettable.

logo layout with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a household enjoyable center in Cottage Lake.

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 types of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for surgeons, dental experts, and legal professionals 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 features the word springz in its name the clear choice would have been to incorporate a couple springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun destination to go and spring doesn’t actually resonate 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, ultimately I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the name itself to provide the logo a better lively high energy impression.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and included him in to everything they utilized for promotion and marketing. I also think this is the only time that a logo I created was turned into a mascot when they had a staff member costume fabricated to look exactly like my frog design.

photography logo featuring a flock of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Cottage Lake travel digital 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 rather specialized field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to shoot places or things but rather project emotional experiences through the pictures they capture. The thought behind this logo design was to utilize negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of most good photographers in that they often convey whole stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey considerably more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with mere words. I tried to do something much the same to this logo by utilizing the positive space in the design to voice 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 looking back, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Cottage Lake logo but also to illustrate the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Cottage Lake logo layout with a seagull made use of for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I genuinely take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless assignment was one that I certainly 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 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 particular man genuinely despised seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his aversion for this specific variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage all of them to share it with colleagues and family members as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get objective opinions on the worthiness of a concept. Fortunately, he shared it with his whole family and they adored 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.

Logo designs are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that tend to hire an expert to design their business logo realize how essential a logo design is for their business so they are much more invested in the outcome. Every logo design job possesses it’s allotment of challenges, however the biggest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s needed to do in branding a company and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, yet it is the most critical part of a printed book because it is ordinarily the primary thing a person views in the bookstore.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines come and go however it seems that in many cases 1 of the aspects individuals tend to remember the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a smaller fledgling 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 affording a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a victory.

Logo design created for an orthodontist in Cottage Lake, design consist of an arc with lines intersecting via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental logos can be one of the most difficult logo jobs because it seems that virtually every dental professional involves 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 fields when it comes to business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dentists do every one of their logo designs would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would probably contain a picture of a potato and a cow.

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

I actually love doing dentistry logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a particular field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical solution that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design made for a household not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities startled in height to stand for 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 illustrative of the devotion that William McNally had for the residents in his community. Many logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain pictures of a happy family, a cliche heavy technique to any logo design is to be very literal about 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 institution wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a custom logo design that conveyed that they were about families without being overtly corny about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer tries to use the logo design to describe precisely how people ought to think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If viewers have to think about a logo to understand what it means, it has fallen short, a logo needs to be immediately comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be comprehended.

Logo style developed for a hair design studio including a script font a hummingbird and an implied orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios required a logo that related an atmosphere of tranquility and elegance for their new hair studio. I came up with a design that did not go the obvious path of creating simply a stylized orchid but rather designed a business logo which suggested a flower in the formation of a swirl incorporated in to the letter O in the title and by putting attention on the concept along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo design is frequently the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but instead put the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to transmit to their clients.

The kernel unites the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that performs as a bridge between the software program and hardware.

The logo I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a few miles from the offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to spell out anything to anyone regarding to what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. However it meant something to the owner of the company and in many cases the significance supporting a company logo is just as important as how it serves 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 fans the founders of On the Fly realized the market was ready for an outdoor sporting retailer that operates as a consignment firm. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell their used items to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Cottage Lake logo dsign with an image that garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors.

I’ve designed dozens of restaurant logo designs and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the US, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my favorite.
