Parkland, Washington Logo Design

Virtually every new Parkland business realizes that they require a logo, yet few new business owners thoroughly realize the vital role their logo design can play in their financial success, or precisely why one business logo functions far better than another. A logo has an immediate and long-term effect on the financial success of a company, choose the correct one and it will make the door swing and cash register ring, choose the incorrect one and it will be an obstacle and an impediment for the life span of a company.

The logos presented in the ImageCo portfolio help Parkland, Washington companies prosper, they are effective in any given circumstance and the main reason they are so effective is that they all have these five traits in common.

  1. Simplicity: simple logo designs do not demand scrutiny, they can be grasped in just a look.
  2. Scalability: from business cards to signboards a scalable logo will continue to be legible and equally emotive at virtually any 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 exclusive, and they are suitable for the organization they stand for.
  5. Relevance: a logo design needs to be lasting and will feel relevant today, tomorrow, and 20 years from now.

Logo PORTFOLIO Volume 1

Retro logo style of a bike produced for a Parkland, Washington coffee cafe as well as a coffee roaster.

Ferry Street Coffee Company | Logo Design | Retail Branding

This fledgling coffee roaster and bistro were actually opening up in an old section of town and really wanted to cast a retro atmosphere without coming across as uninteresting or low energy. I achieved each of the tasks by means of creating a sign concept that uses a man on a high wheel bicycle (aka The Penny Farthing), it is old-fashioned, high energy, and is a ageless business image.

medical logo design with a microscope slide as well as germs designed for Parkland, Washington medical center.

Mid-Valley Pathology | Logo Design

Pathology is the science which studies the triggers and outcomes of diseases, mainly the field of medicine which deals with the laboratory assessment of specimens of body tissue for diagnostic or forensic reasons.

The Mid-Valley Pathology custom logo design I came up with is really the sole instance I recollect in which I was able to integrate a bacteria-laden microscope slide right into a business logo design.

Normally I try not to be excessively literal with a design and to a point, this specific design approaches the company it represents quite literally, however it does it in a fashion that incorporates 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 name that helps make it more interesting, more attention grabbing and even more memorable.

logo style with a jumping environment-friendly frog developed for a household enjoyable facility in Parkland, Washington.

Cool Springs | Logo Design | Retail Branding

The Cool Springz Trampoline Park was a very fun 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 kinds of projects which come my way, I’ve produced dozens of logo designs for physicians, dental practices, and attorneys but Cool Springz is without question the only trampoline park which I have ever had the privilege to work on.

Given that the name of the business features the word springz in its name the apparent choice would have been to incorporate a some 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 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 much more enthusiastic high energy feel.

In the end, Cool Springz ended up loving my concept and named the frog Jax and featured him in to everything they utilized for advertising. 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 just like my frog design.

photography logo design featuring a group of birds, a mountain, a route, a stream, and a tree - created for Parkland, Washington traveling 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 pretty niche field of photography and I think it is a niche speciality due to the fact that travel photographers tend not to capture locations or things but instead project emotional experiences by means of the photos they record. The idea behind this logo design was to make use of negative space to communicate more than what was visible upon initial glance, which I think is representative of almost all good photographers in that they frequently convey whole 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 often have an emotional fullness which can’t be conveyed with just words. I attempted to do something comparable to this logo by using 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 goal was to both brand this photographer with a memorable  Parkland logo design but also to reveal the depth in her art and in the way that she sees the world through the lens of her camera.

 Parkland logo design with a seagull utilized for the letter A. Designed for a cordless retail service.

Coastal Wireless | Logo Design

The majority of logo design projects that I take on I honestly 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 idea of using the seagull shape as a stroke in the letter A but my client, even though he liked the concept, really did not care for my choice of birds. This guy truly disliked seagulls, which he referred to as the “rats of the sky”, luckily the rest of his friends and family didn’t share his hatred for this particular variety of sea bird.

When I turn a concept over to a customer I encourage them to discuss it with friends and family as well as with other people that they don’t actually know so as to get honest judgements on the value of a design. Fortunately, he talked about it with his whole family and they really liked the design and were able to persuade 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 went with the original concept.

Logos are a weird creature in the design world because the people that tend to hire an expert to create their business logo comprehend how important a logo is for their business so they are way more invested in the result. Every logo project possesses it’s share of difficulties, but the greatest obstacle is finding that sweet spot in a design that operates really well at the job it’s required to do in branding a company and also giving the customer the identity they see for themselves.

a red panda logo design with bamboo in the background, design for Parkland, Washington publication author

Red Panda Publishers | Logo Design

The book spine is a narrow segment of real estate to work with, however it is the most critical part of a printed book since it is ordinarily the initial thing a person sees in the book shop. Concerning a publisher, it’s the best opportunity that they will likely ever have to spotlight their product and get their logo design in front of the people that shop for 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 Design

Airlines arrive and go yet it seems like that in many instances 1 of the items people usually tend to recall the most are their logos. The Air LA logo design was done for a modest start-up commuter/shuttle airline company based in LA and although I’m not certain it actually “took off” their logo design didn’t slow them. The bookend A’s in their title lent itself well to imparting a good sense of airline flight and it was surely a winner.

Logo developed for an orthodontist in Parkland, Washington, design include an arc with lines converging via it to suggest steel dental braces.

Kujak Orthodontics | Logo Design | Sign Design

Dentistry business logos can be one of the most difficult logo design projects because it seems that virtually every dental professional integrates 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 professions when it comes to business branding, if restaurants approached their branding in the same way dental professionals do every one of their company logos would be a picture explaining something they served, McDonalds would most likely contain an image of a potato and a cow.

I recognize the thinking behind adding an image of something mouth related to a dentist’s company logo nevertheless it has to be performed subtly or it will just look like every other clipart dentists logo that litter the branding landscape of the dentistry profession.

I actually enjoy doing dental care business logos simply because it challenges me to come up with a design that implies dentistry or a certain area of dentistry like orthodontics without resorting to the stereotypical approach that so many dentists settle on.

Kujak Orthodontics provided such an opportunity and ultimately 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 design over to the customer the only smile that was evident was actually the smile on Dr. Kujak’s face.

William McNally logo designed for a family members nonprofit, the logo design features 4 characters surprised in height to stand for a family unit with in the layout.

William McNally | Logo Design | Branding

The William McNally Family Foundation asked ImageCo to help them come up with a logo design that would be representative of the love that William McNally had for the people residing in his community. Most logos with the name “family” in them tend to contain depictions 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 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 wishes to project.

The McNally Foundation’s name presented a unique opportunity to do a logo that communicated that they were about families without being openly cheesy about it. The aim of a logo is to be remembered and recognized and if the designer makes an effort to use the logo design to describe how individuals ought to think or feel they don’t understand the purpose of a logo. If people have to think about a logo design to understand what it means, it has been in vain, a logo needs to be instantly comprehended and a logo design that describes itself won’t have the chance to be understood.

Logo layout produced for a hair design studio featuring a manuscript 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 conveyed a feeling of peace and connection for their new hair studio. I came up with a concept that did not go the obvious direction of crafting simply a stylized orchid but alternatively delivered a logo which implied a flower in the pattern of a swirl incorporated into the letter O in the title and by placing emphasis on the concept with the silhouette of a hummingbird floating over the logo design itself. The obvious path in designing a logo is in most cases the incorrect path and in this case, the design ended up not being about the orchid but alternately laid the emphasis on the feeling that they really wanted to project to their clients.

Smart Kernels | Logo Design

A kernel is the central component of an operating system (OS). Traditionally, the kernel is responsible for memory management, process and task control, and hard drive operations. The kernel attaches the system hardware to the application software. In other words a kernel is {essentially|quite literally a bridge that functions as a bridge between the software program and computer hardware.

The logo design I came up with for Smart Kernels was based on an actual bridge that is situated a number of miles from the business 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. But it symbolized 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 brands the organization it represents.

Whether you are into boating, sportfishing or rock climbing, or even hunting, On the Fly provides a destination for outdoor sports enthusiasts with all sorts of passions, a place to sell off their secondhand products to other sports enthusiasts. I designed their Parkland business logo dsign utilizing an illustration which garners the interest of vehicles and projects an image that calls to mind the passion of the outdoors.

Good in that it grants a designer the freedom to explore any idea that comes to mind, bad in that it’s tricky to hit a bullseye without realizing where the target is. Luckily, in this case, I struck a bullseye with the first go.

Brewgrrs was a great undertaking where I worked directly with the proprietor to create a business logo which worked really well and did a great job to brand them, it worked on everything on everything from coasters, and tap handles all the way to the neon sign which hung over their doors, and was highly visible and very legible from over a block away.
