Maple Valley Logo Design

Virtually every new Maple Valley venture understands that they need a logo, but few new business owners fully are aware of the key role their organization logo will take in their financial success, or the reason that one logo design performs better than another. A business logo has an instant and long term effect on the financial success of a company, go with the right one and it can make the door swing and cash register ring, select the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of an organization. The logos featured in the ImageCo portfolio help Maple Valley businesses prosper, they are effective in any given scenario and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five features in common.
  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs don’t require deliberation, they can be comprehended in merely a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to billboards a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at every size.
  3. Versatility: logos that function on any sort 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 enterprise they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a business logo needs to be timeless and should feel relevant today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now.

Retro logo design of a bike developed for a Maple Valley coffee cafe and a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and coffeehouse were opening up in an old section of the community and wanted to visualize a nostalgic atmosphere without coming across as stodgy or low energy. I fulfilled both tasks by means of creating a company logo concept that features a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is antiquated, higher energy, and is a classic business image.

medical logo style with a microscope slide as well as bacteria made for Maple Valley clinical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which analyzes the causes and outcomes of diseases, mainly the branch of medicine that works with the laboratory examination of samplings of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic intents.

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

Usually I try not to be extremely literal with a concept and to a degree, this design approaches the company it represents fairly literally, yet it does it in a way 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 helps make it more captivating, more interest grabbing and even more memorable.

logo layout with a leaping eco-friendly frog created for a family enjoyable facility in Maple Valley.

Cool Springz | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a really cool project to work on, most likely 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 done dozens of logo designs for medical professionals, dental offices, 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 full name of the company features 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 doesn’t actually reflect an environment 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, inevitably I landed on a green tree frog and a dimensional treatment of the title itself to give the logo a much more dynamic high energy atmosphere.

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

photography logo including a flock of birds, a hill, a route, a stream, and also a tree - made for Maple Valley travel 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 pretty specialized field of photography and I believe it is a niche speciality because travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead reveal emotional experiences by means of the photos 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 almost all good photographers in that they oftentimes tell entire stories through their photography.

It’s said that a picture is worth a 1000 words but I think that some photographs convey a great deal more than that because their photos frequently have an emotional fullness that can’t be communicated with mere words. I attempted to do something much the same to this logo design by making use of 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 communicated through the first impression. I think, in looking back, that my goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Maple Valley logo but also to reveal the depth to her work and in the way that she perceives the world through the lens of her camera.

 Maple Valley logo design with a seagull used for the letter A. Designed for a wireless retail organisation.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The bulk of logo design jobs that I take on I seriously relish and the Coastal Wireless project was one that I really felt good about, however 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 letter A however my customer, even though he liked the concept, didn’t care for my choice of birds. This particular guy truly hated seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, thankfully the rest of his family members didn’t share his contempt for this specific type of sea bird.

When I turn a design over to a client I encourage all of them to discuss it with friends and colleagues and family members as well as with folks that they don’t even know so as to get unprejudiced point of views on the merit of a 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 … eventually I was able to talk him out of his alternative of a pelican and he proceeded with the original design.

Logos are a strange creature in the design world given that the people that have a tendency to hire a professional to design their logo understand how vital a logo is for their company so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo job possesses it’s allotment of difficulties, however the biggest challenge is finding that sweet spot in a design that functions really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a business and also providing the customer the image they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo behind-the-scenes, design for Maple Valley book publisher

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a cramped piece of real estate to work with, however it really is the most essential part of a published book given that it is often the primary thing a person views in the bookstore. Regarding a publishing company, it’s the most ideal opportunity they will ever get to promote their brand and get their logo design in front of the people that purchase actual books.

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

Air LA | Logo Design

Airlines arrive and go however it seems that in many instances one of the things people often tend to recollect the most are their logos. 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. The bookend A’s in their name lent itself well to conferring a spirit of air travel and it was certainly a success.

 Maple Valley logo design made use of for advertising and marketing as well as a tag layout for Vintage Instance features an old font design.

Vintage Case | Logo Design

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Maple Valley, layout include an arc with lines converging through it to imply metal dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dental care business logos can easily be one of the most challenging logo jobs due to the fact that it appears that almost every dentist incorporates a smile, a tooth, a smiling tooth, or a toothy smile in their design. Dental logo designs are one of the very most cliche ridden careers when it comes to company advertising, if dining establishments approached their advertising in the same way dentists do every one of their logos would definitely be a picture trying to explain something they served, McDonalds would most likely have an image of a potato and a cow.

I understand the thinking behind adding a likeness of something mouth associated to a dentist’s logo but it has to be done subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dental professionals logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

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

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

William McNally logo design developed for a household not-for-profit, the logo design features 4 personalities staggered 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 that would be representative of the devotion that William McNally had for the families 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 about what the name says or the industry it represents. I’ve found that the best concepts are the ones that are downplayed and don’t hit the viewer on the head with what the company or organization wants to convey.

The McNally Foundation’s name provided a distinct opportunity to do a logo that conveyed that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The intention of a logo design is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer attempts to use the logo design to illustrate specifically how people should think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to consider a logo design to understand what it means, it has failed, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that explains itself will never have the chance to be understood.

Logo design produced for a hair layout workshop featuring a manuscript font a hummingbird and also an indicated orchid for the letter O.

Wild Orchid Studio | Logo Design Project

Wild Orchid Studios needed a company logo which carried a feeling of tranquility and class for their new hair studio. I created a concept that didn’t go the obvious path of crafting simply a stylized orchid but alternatively created a logo that implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl featured in to the letter O in the title and by placing attention on the logo design along with the figure of a hummingbird hovering over the logo design itself. The obvious path in creating a logo is usually the incorrect route and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the attention on the emotion that they really wanted to project to their customers.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the key part of an operating system (OS). Generally, the kernel is responsible for memory administration, process and task control, and disk managing. The kernel links the computer hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that operates as a connection in between the software 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 identify anything to anyone about what business they are in or how it relates to their specific location. Nevertheless it represented something to the owner of the business and in many cases the meaning behind a logo is equally as important as how it serves the enterprise it represents.

With companies like Cabelas and Bass Pros raking in over 7 billion a year selling goods and equipment to outdoor sporting enthusiasts the owners of On the Fly knew the market place was primed for an outdoor sporting merchant that operates as a consignment firm. Whether or not you are into boating, fishing or mountain climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a venue for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a location to sell off their pre-owned products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Maple Valley logo dsign utilizing an image that garners the interest of vehicles and sends an image that wakens the passion of the outdoors. With visitor traffic that averages 45 mph I realized it would take more than the average logo/sign to get commuters to take notice, hence the picture of a fly fisherman in his natural and peaceful habitat.

I’ve designed loads of restaurant logo designs and business signs for restaurants, diners, sports bars, night clubs, dining establishments|eateries} all over the United States, from cupcake bakeries to pizza parlors and oyster bars, out of all of them I believe Brewgrrs was my absolute favorite.
