Edmonds Logo Design

Each and every new Edmonds organization realizes that they are in need of a logo, yet few new business owners entirely realize the pivotal role their business logo will perform in their financial success, or exactly why one logo functions better than another. A logo design has an immediate and sustaining influence on the financial success of a business, pick the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, go with the wrong one and it can be a barrier and a hindrance for the longevity of a company. The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Edmonds companies prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is because they all have these five traits in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logos do not require deliberation, they can be comprehended in merely a glance.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will stay legible and just as emotive at virtually any size.
  3. Versatility: logos that operate 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 personal, and they are suitable for the business they represent.
  5. Relevance: a logo needs to be ageless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from today.

Retro logo design of a bicycle developed for a Edmonds coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were opening in an older section of the town and really wanted to visualize a nostalgic atmosphere without appearing as uninteresting or low energy. I accomplished each of the jobs by means of designing a custom logo design that includes a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscopic lense slide and germs made for Edmonds clinical clinic.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the causes and effects of diseases, mainly the branch of healthcare which deals with the laboratory evaluation of specimens of human body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

The Mid-Valley Pathology brand I came up with is really the only instance I recollect where I was in a position to incorporate a bacteria-laden microscope slide within a business logo design.

Generally I attempt not to be overly literal with a design and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly 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 illustration of what Mid-Valley Pathology does so much as acts as an enhancer to the brand that makes it more captivating, more focus grabbing and much more meaningful.

logo design with a jumping green frog made for a family enjoyable facility in Edmonds.

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 kinds of jobs which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for health care providers, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park that I have actually ever gotten the opportunity to work on.

Given that the title of the business features the word springz in its name the obvious choice would have been to feature a few springs into the design but Cool Springz is a fun location to go and spring does not actually reflect an environment 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, eventually I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more lively high energy feel.

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

digital photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and a tree - designed for Edmonds travel photographer.

Travel Don’t Wander | Logo Design | Website Design

Travel Don’t Wander was a logo design project I took on for a travel photographer, which is a rather specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers don’t capture places or things but rather communicate emotional journeys through the photos they capture. The idea behind this logo concept was to use negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon first view, which I think is quintessential of the majority of professional photographers in that they often convey entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos often have an emotional fullness that can’t be revealed with just words. I made an effort to do something much the same to this logo by making use of 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 hindsight, that my objective was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Edmonds logo but also to illustrate the depth to her art and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Edmonds logo layout with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail company.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The lion’s share of custom logo design jobs that I take on I truly take pleasure in and the Coastal Wireless design 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 idea of using the seagull silhouette as a stroke in the letter A but my client, while he loved the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This man truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his scorn for this specific kind of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a customer I encourage all of them to talk about it with colleagues and family as well as with people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest judgements on the worthiness of a design concept. Fortunately, he discussed 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 incorporate every other seabird he could think of … eventually I was able to talk him out of his choice of a pelican and he went with the original design.

Custom logo designs are a weird animal in the design world because the people that have a tendency to hire an expert to create their logo realize how crucial a logo is for their business so they are way more vested in the outcome. Every logo project has it’s allotment of challenges, but the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the task it’s needed to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Edmonds book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it really is the most vital part of a printed book given that it is in most cases the initial thing a person views in the bookstore. For a publisher, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will likely ever have to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the men and women that buy actual books.

This three color design is vivid, colorful and eye-catching and it gives plenty of room for the title and the author’s name.

Air LA logo created for an airline in Los Angeles, the logo design has 2 letter A's with the bars customized to imply they are wings.

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go but it seems like that in many occurrences 1 of the things individuals tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a small fledgling commuter/shuttle airline situated in LA and while I’m not sure it actually “took off” their logo didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their brand lent itself well to imparting a spirit of airline flight and it was definitely a success.

 Edmonds logo design used for marketing and a label style for Vintage Case includes an antiquated font style layout.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo design produced for an orthodontist in Edmonds, style consist of an arc with lines converging via it to indicate metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry logo designs can easily be one of the most difficult logo jobs considering that it appears 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 small business advertising, if restaurants approached their branding in the exact same way dental professionals do every one of their logo designs would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind including an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s logo but it has to be performed 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 dentist logos because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies the field of dentistry or a certain field of the field of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the clichéd approach that so many dentists settle on.

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

William McNally logo design designed for a family not-for-profit, the logo includes 4 personalities surprised in elevation to represent a family unit with in the design.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation contacted ImageCo to help them come up with a logo that would be depictive of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his city. The majority of logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain images of a happy family, a cliche heavy method 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 designs are the ones that are understated and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the business or organization wishes to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a distinct opportunity to do a logo design which communicated that they were about families without being openly corny about it. The aim of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to summarize how individuals should think or feel they don’t understand the goal of a logo. If people have to ponder a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be immediately understood and a logo that describes itself will never have the likelihood to be understood.

Logo style developed for a hair style workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which related an atmosphere of serenity and class for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept which didn’t go the obvious route of making just a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo which implied an orchid in the formation of a swirl blended into the letter O in the title and by putting emphasis on the logo design along with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating above the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is generally the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the flower but instead put the focus on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Logo layout for a software application designer the design attributes and legendary aspect of a bridge to the left of the name.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task management, and hard drive management. The kernel connects the system 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 hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is located a number of miles from the business offices of Smart kernels. It’s a logo design that doesn’t attempt to describe anything to anyone regarding what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. But it intimated something to the business owner of the company and in many cases the meaning behind a logo design is equally as important as how it serves the business it represents.

A logo layout featuring an angler in the middle of the name casting a fly towards the visitor.

On The Fly | Logo Design | Retail Branding

With brand names like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in more than 7 billion a year offering goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the founders of On the Fly knew the market place was prepared for an outdoor sporting store that functions as a consignment business. Whether you are into boating, angling or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly presents a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all kinds of interests, a location to sell their secondhand items to other sports enthusiasts. I tailored their Edmonds business logo dsign using an image which garners the attention of traffic and projects an image that arouses the enthusiasm of the outdoors. With traffic that averages forty five mph I realized it would take more than the typical logo/sign to get travelers to take notice, hence the image of a fly fisherman in his natural and tranquil habitat.

I have designed loads of restaurant business logos and establishment signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bake shops to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I think Brewgrrs was my favorite. Brewgrrs was a cool undertaking where I worked directly with the owner to create a logo which worked very well and did a fantastic job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon signage which hung above their doors, and was highly visible and very easy to read from over a block away.
